Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Country icon. With a voice closer to Bonnie Raitt than any other Country vocalist, Lacy could be described as the female version of Waylon Jennings. 16th Avenue was released in 1982. The title track, surprisingly, only reached #7 in the Billboard Country charts. It has since been hailed as one of the all-time great Country records and is the song most associated with Lacy J. The other track released as a single was 'Slow Down' which reached #13. Takin' It Easy was released in 1981 and reached #12 in the Billboard Country album charts and remained there for 39 weeks. The singles taken from the album were the title track which got to #2 and a double A-side of 'Everybody Makes Mistakes/Wild Turkey' which reached #5. Amazingly, Lacy only won one major award (Academy of Country Music's Top New Female Vocalist in 1980) but awards mean nothing as those with ears will know. Here is one of the greatest, smoky-voiced Honky Tonk singers of all time.
