Jessi Colter: Diamond in the Rough (Capitol ST 11543)

Mike Jahn, High Fidelity, January 1977

JESSI COLTER is a country singer who apparently would like to be more than a country singer. As indicated by this new release, she desires a wider audience and feels she can win it by singing varying types of material. A seven-minute blues, 'Diamond in the Rough', and two Beatles songs, 'Get Back' and 'Hey Jude', are included here.
