Nancy Sinatra ~ Country, My Way (1967/1996)

I used to not be a fan of this Nashville recorded album (I prefer to hear her singing straight up pop) but it grew on me ... features her cover of Jackson with Lee Hazlewood. This is the 1996 Sundazed reissue CD with bonus tracks ... I have the other Sundazed CD reissues of her Reprise albums ... just ask, and I will post them here.

Marsha Thornton ~ Marsha Thornton (1990)

The first of only two albums by this rising star of the early 90's. Her blossoming career came to a screeching halt when her contract was terminated suddenly by MCA in 1991 when it was brought to their attention in some form or another that she was a lesbian (regardless of the fact that it was allegedly well known by those in Nashville, I'm assuming it was brought to their attention by someone of importance.) Very, very sad. This debut album was produced by the legendary Owen Bradley and features her first hit single, "A Bottle of Wine and Patsy Cline" ... This album is long out of print and not even available anywhere digitally.
