Tammy Wynette: D-I-V-O-R-C-E/Stand By Your Man (Morello Records/Cherry Red)

Tammy Wynette
D-I-V-O-R-C-E/Stand By Your Man
(Morello Records/Cherry Red)

‘D-I-V-O-R-C-E’ and ‘Stand By Your Man’ reissues tell the sad tales of broken homes and broken dreams. Released originally in 1968 (‘D-I-V-O-R-C-E’) and 1969 (‘Stand By Your Man’), marked the rise of a country music star, one with a sob in her voice. The stellar songwriting and brilliant execution by not only Wynette but also the backing bands make these albums classics. Fan of country music or not, after a listen to ‘D-I-V-O-R-C-E’ and ‘Stand By Your Man’ you can’t deny the quality of the tracks and, if you’re of a certain age, these songs will take you back to your childhood and the family stereo time on Sunday afternoons. Tissues recommended. This CD is a tear jerker.
