Dottie West: The Cream Of The EMI Years (2-CD)

(Humphead Records) 50 tracks

If ever there was an example of a Country Music artist rising above the odds to achieve stardom, it would be Dottie West. The events of her life flowed like the lyrics of the songs that became favourites of fans around the world. Her penchant for composing—as well as identifying—lyrics that struck a chord with listeners carried her on a journey that included television stardom, and in 2018 her induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Dottie West, who enjoyed country charts success from the early 1960s through to the mid-1980s, has been unfairly overlooked when it comes down to rating the finest and most influential female country performers.

Possessing a distinctive and emotional singing voice she was one of the most popular, and controversial, performers to rise to popularity during the Nashville Sound era; like her friend and mentor Patsy Cline, Dottie West's battles for identity and respect within the male-dominated country music hierarchy were instrumental in enabling other female artists to gain control over the direction of their careers.

Dottie West & Don Gibson

Rings Of Gold

(Gene Thomas)

recorded November 7, 1968 (18:00-21:30) RCA Victor Studio, 806 17th Avenue South, Nashville, Tennessee; Producers: Danny Davis & Chester B. Atkins

with Don Gibson: duet vocal/guitar; Dottie West: duet vocal/leader;  Chester B. 'Chet' Atkins: guitar; Jerry Reed Hubbard: electric guitar; Thomas Grady Martin: electric guitar; Bill West: steel guitar; Roy M. 'Junior' Huskey, Jr: bass; Jerry K. Carrigan: drums; Hargus M. 'Pig' Robbins: piano

RCA 47-9715 - master WWA4-5012

Gene Thomas was a teenage rock 'n' roller from Palestine, Texas, who went to Houston in search of his big break. His record of Sometime became a fairly big hit in 1961, and caught the ear of Roy Orbison, who brought him to Nashville. Orbison and Bobby Goldsboro wrote the follow-up, Baby's Gone, but it died at #84. "Back in Houston," Thomas said later, "I began focusing more on writing, due to the fact I didn't like any of the songs offered by the Nashville publishers. In '67, I wrote a song titled 'Go With Me' and recorded it as a duo [Gene & Debbe]." It was probably fellow Houstonian Mickey Newbury who connected Thomas with Acuff-Rose's new pop label, TRX. Gene & Debbe cracked the Hot 100 three times in 1967 and '68. Rings Of Gold was one of their duets, but the original version was by yet another duet, Waylon Jennings and Anita Carter, who recorded it in November 1967. Someone at Acuff-Rose pitched it to Don Gibson and Dottie West for their first and only duet album.

The once-assertive backbeat on Gibson's records had given way to a brisk, playful rhythm track. Three electric guitarists worked the session, Grady Martin, Jerry Reed, and Chet Atkins. It's hard to know who's playing the trippy lead guitar; in all likelihood, it's Martin. Rings Of Gold reached #2 on the country charts, becoming Dottie West's biggest hit to that point. At the end of 1969, Chet Atkins dropped Gibson, deciding that a jolt might rid him of his addictions and sloppy attitude. Wesley Rose picked him up on his way down for Hickory Records. There were another thirty-plus hits, none of them very substantial except Woman (Sensuous Woman), which topped the country charts in 1972.
