Tracy Nelson: Mother Earth Presents Tracy Nelson Country [Mercury, 1970]
Country specialists don't approve of this--seem to feel it's cheating to step lively with such undeniable material. But only an inspired cheat would feature songs by Crudup, Willis, Scaggs, and T. Nelson on her country album. And only a paragon would sing them so sweet, direct, and strong. Nor would the mix of musicians--led by original Elvis guitarist Scotty Moore--occur to your everyday Nashvillian. Country, rock, who cares--eleven beautiful songs beautifully rendered.
