currently stands as the most successful female country singer of all
time. Dolly Parton is arguably better-known, Patsy Cline was perhaps
more influential and Kitty Wells, Tammy Wynette and Shania Twain might
all stake a claim. But for sheer consistency, re-invention and overall
album sales, Reba McEntire remains way out in front.
In an astonishing run throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Reba sold over 33
miliion albums. During this period she released 22 number one hits and
released five gold albums, six platinum albums, two double-platinum
albums, four triple-platinum albums, a quadruple-platinum album, and a
Reba's first album for MCA Records, 'Just A Little Love', was originally
released in 1984. This showcased a fuller, more varied sound than she'd
had previously. The following year saw her working with (Alabama
producer) Harold Shedd on her new album, 'My Kind Of Country', which
delved into Reba's own musical heritage.
Both albums are now reissued here together on CD for the first time. The
accompanying 16 page booklet includes photographs, extensive liner notes
and complete lyrics to every featured track.
