Perhaps the best, and most representative, single disc Lynn best-of to date, this covers the years 1961-1976, and includes just about all of her signature songs, from her hard country debut single "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl" to proto-feminist don't-take-any-crap anthems like "Your Squaw Is on the Warpath" and "Fist City," to the autobiographical "Coal Miner's Daughter" and "You're Looking at Country." This may not be all the Loretta Lynn you'll ever need, but it will do in the meantime.
