built her career during her time on MCA but that label was not short of
talent - Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood were among those who were also
signed to MCA at the time. With less competition at Epic records, Patty
made the switch. This particular album, whose recording and subsequent
release was delayed by throat surgery, showed Patty's traditional roots
within a contemporary country framework.
The album is dominated by ballads but there are some up-tempo and
mid-tempo songs (Blame it on your heart, How about you, All I need is not
to need you, You will). It yielded three big country hits, these being
Nothing but the wheel (about going on the road to drive a man out of her
mind), How can I help you say goodbye (about coping with death) and Blame
it on your heart (one of the up-tempo songs). All three later appeared on
Classics, a greatest hits compilation that I've already reviewed.
Apart from the hits, there are other excellent songs here including
Love builds the bridges pride builds the walls (about two stubborn
people), You don't know how lucky you are (on the old theme of love being
more important than riches) and What's a broken heart (on another old
theme - coming to terms with a broken relationship).
As ever, this is a top quality album - Patty has never recorded
anything else - but if you are new to her music, you might be better to
buy Classics as a starter.
