Sealed, Rare 1973 Original. Pristine Copy. “In 1973, Columbia Records Wisely Turned The Production Of Tanya Tucker's Sophomore Effort Over To Senior Producer Billy Sherrill. There Was A Lot At Stake Considering The Kind Of Backlash Country Critics Were Infamous For. Tucker And Sherrill Proved She Was No Fly-By-Night Child Star With What's Your Mama's Name. They Put The Songwriting Team Of Earl Montgomery And Dallas Frazier On The Map With The Title Track, Which Was Almost As Catchy And Certainly As Lyrically Deep As "Delta Dawn." When Tucker Sang "Horeshoe Bend," About A Young Woman Losing Her Virginity To A Rounder, People Were Captivate. In Other Words, The Prurient Interests Of The Country Music Public Were Piqued, But It Didn't Matter Because Tucker's Voice Kicked Ass And The Material Was Top-Notch. Sherrill's Experimenting In The Studio Certainly Paid Off: Even Songs Like "California Cotton Fields" And "Teddy Bear Song" Balanced Out The Risqué Tunes. It Also Didn't Hurt That Tucker Is Pictured On The Back Cover Sitting On A Porch Swing In A Coat Holding A Puppy. The Mixture Of A Young Woman's Budding Yet Brazen Sexuality And Innocence Combined With The Voice Of A Fully Developed Artist Were Too Much To Resist, Even For Cynics. While The Second Side Is As Strong As The First, It Is Marked By The Genius Read Of Curly Putman's "Blood Red And Goin' Down," A Tragic Story Of A Father Relating The Story Of His Unfaithful Wife To His Daughter Before Taking Homicidal Action On The Illicit Lovers.” Thom Jurek, AMG.
