Tanya Tucker: Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone) (Columbia KC 32744)

Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 25 April 1974

TANYA TUCKER'S third album, like the first two, contains many covers of recent country chart-busters, competent but rarely inspired backing, and an almost smothering use of large ensemble vocals. But like her others, I give it my highest recommendations, for Tucker has a perfectly gorgeous voice, with a richly tremulous texture: At 15, she is a rare and precious talent.
