I 'm so happy to see Ronee Blakley's Welcome album transferred to CD. I got it on vinyl when it came out and have to say it is one of those albums I thought would never be transferred to CD so I'm doubly delighted. Both sides are Ronee Blakley, even if the front cover is a bit exaggerated. She really was able to write in an authentic Nashville idiom even if it was a little more like the older Nashville of Loretta Lynn and Lynn Anderson. It's a curiosity of the film that Nashville's music was more "country" than what was big on the country charts in the mid-70's, a mix of John Denver, Mac Davis, Olivia Newton-John, Linda Ronstadt, Glen Campbell, Ray Stevens and Donnie & Marie Osmond.
