The Essential Dottie West
by Dottie West
Released: Jan 1996
Label: Rca Records Label Nashville
With films about Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline, and with music critics calling Kitty Wells the queen of the honky-tonks, Dottie West is truly one of the most underrated pioneers of female-fronted country music. This collection is loaded with buttery old-time Nashville production and West's heartbreakingly beautiful voice.
