Happy 75th birthday to country singer Melba Montgomery, who sounds a little more like Maker's Mark with just a hint of White Lightenin' for bite. There's something soothing about her voice which was a bit deeper than that of her female contemporaries. Because of this she stands out from the crowd. As a deep-voiced woman myself, I have much appreciation for her higher contralto.
Some of her best remembered recordings were mid-60s duets with George Jones. My Record of the Day is Melba's version of one of George's biggest hits. The arrangement isn't much different than on the original, but Melba's delivery packs enough of a punch to make it a uniquely potent concoction for your ears.

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
