The Essential Tammy Wynette

Legacy Recordings’ critically acclaimed and globally successful Essential series has just released its latest entry covering the recording career of Tammy Wynette: The Essential Tammy Wynette (Epic/Legacy 88883 74115 2).

The Essential series has set a worldwide standard with its vast catalog of career-spanning, chronologically sequenced, fully annotated collections, available as double-CD packages or digital downloads.

The Essential Tammy Wynette, which underscores her position as a beacon of hope and independence to a generation of women, arrives 15 years after Tammy’s death in 1998 at age 55; and 45 years since “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” and “Stand By Your Man” were back-to-back #1 hits in 1968, sentiments that still resonate in today’s society.

Tammy made it to #1 country with just her third single, “My Elusive Dreams” (with David Houston), the first of 20 #1 country hits for Tammy and producer Billy Sherrill, 18 of which are included on this set. Tammy had at least one #1 country hit (sometimes two or three) every year from 1967 to ’73; in 1976 (the year after her divorce from George Jones), she had four consecutive #1 country hits, and she stayed a Top 20 presence well into the 1980s. Along the way, she had worldwide sales of more than 30 million albums. Legacy’s country music A-team of compilation producer Gregg Geller and liner notes essayist Rich Kienzle are to be commended for this Essential package.
