Lacy J. Dalton is one of the most under-rated singers in country music. With a voice closer to Bonnie Raitt than any other country vocalist, Lacy could be described as the female version of Waylon Jennings. June 1986's Highway Diner a No. 32 country chart entry contained a successful single in Working Class Man which was belatedly followed up at the years end by This Ol Town. These made Numbers 16 and 33 respectively. Eleven months later came Blue-Eyed Blues, a half and half affair matching new recordings with career highlights. She teamed with Bobby Bare for Its A Dirty Job, a country Top 40 hit in 1983 never previously included on one of her albums, and the legendary George Jones for That's Good That's Bad. She then went bluegrass with Earl Scruggs for the new Love Gone Cold and finally with David Allan Coe on Bob Dylans Gotta Serve Somebody.

Among the songs here, Boomtown is not the Toby Keith song, but a very different song about an erstwhile small town being expanded. Other great songs include 12:05, Changing all the time (the track about the highway diner) and Can't see me without you, but there's plenty of great music here.
The second album, Blue eyed blues, features two tracks that hadn't been released previously as far as I can tell (Have I got a heart for you, I'll love 'em whatever they are), four duets that had previously been released on albums by the male duet partners (David Allan Coe, Bobby Bare, George Jones and Earl Scruggs) and four solo tracks that had been released on Lacy's earlier albums, these being 16th Avenue, Hillbilly girl with the blues, My old yellow car and the title track. It was clearly an end-of-contract album but works quite well and neatly complements Highway diner.
There are just two more of Lacy's Columbia albums to be released on CD, these being Dream baby (which I didn't buy in my vinyl days) and Can't run away from your heart (an excellent album that I did buy on vinyl). It appears that this is the last release on the Morello label, as the parent label Cherry Red has removed Morello's New release page BUT two other customers have been in contact with Morello and have been assured that further releases are planned for 2015. We'll see.
