Louise Mandrell

The more traditionally country-oriented of the sisters Mandrell, Louise remains pleasantly twangy and tangy. Her husband and sometime duet partner, R.C. Bannon, doesn't sing on this album, but he did help write five songs in an especially varied mix of material. His The Eyes of Tex Are on You is a clever play on the unofficial Lone Star anthem (actually the song of the University of Texas) and Goodbye Heartache is surprisingly up-tempo for a tune with such a downbeat title. Also noteworthy are Don Everly's So Sad (To Watch Good Love Go Bad) and the Shawna Harrington-Randy Sharp song So Much Love. Mandrell plays a little fiddle, but mostly, despite the lachrymose content of the majority of the songs, she just sings up a happy little storm. (RCA)
