“A Woman Lives For Love” by Wanda Jackson - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1970Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

Her second LP of 1970, a short set of ten, and not as tough on the preceding “Wanda Jackson Country”. Pleasing many no doubt, the album opens with her recent big hit “A Woman Lives For Love” with which I'm somewhat underwhelmed. There's always something decent on her records though and “The Dirt Behind My Years” is a fine highlight, where an ex regrets the shabby treatment they handed out to the lost partner: “Now I'd lost the only one in life I held so dear, I slowly bury your love in the dirt behind my years”. Over on side two, she turns in a fair rendition of the popular “Stand By Your Man” (Tammy Wynette, 1968) and finishes the album strongly with “I’d Fight The World” (Johnny and Jonie Mosby, 1962). “Well-produced and sure to move well in stores” said Billboard. Bet they say that to all the paying pluggers.
