Picks and Pans Review: Only Lonely Sometimes

Tammy Wynette

Tammy is the sort of good-looking, score-knowing, understanding woman every good ole boy hopes he's going to see sitting alone some night at the end of the honky-tonk bar—but never does. She's long-suffering, but hasn't quite given up on men—He Was There (When I Needed You) proves that—and she's always ready for a fresh romance, as Starting Over shows. (It's not the Hamlisch tune from Burt Reynolds' movie, but a mournful country tune by Bob McDill.) And, of course, she has a heart of gold, laid bare in I'll Be Thinking of You and Randy Goodrum's minor classic You Needed Me. Be thankful, boys; at least you can be sure of finding Tammy on the old turntable, reliable and comforting as a broken-in flannel shirt.
