Honky Tonk Girl: The Loretta Lynn Collection

by: Loretta Lynn

Loretta Lynn's three-disc box set Honky Tonk Girl: Collection has the requisite rarities, but the real strength of the set is how it offers all of her essential tracks -- from 1960s "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl" to 1988's "Who Was That Stranger" -- in one place. Not only are her classic hits like "Fist City" and "Coal Miner's Daughter" included, but so are most of her hit duets with Conway Twitty, such as "After the Fire Is Gone" and "As Soon as I Hang Up the Phone." A few hits are missing -- notably "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man" -- but Honky Tonk Girl remains the one comprehensive and essential Loretta Lynn collection. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
