A Year in Your Life: 1970's Country, Vol. 1 highlights a decade when country music made a major impact on the pop charts, its crossover appeal aided by charismatic performers and slick productions that paired country singers with string sections and pop melodies. This collection features a wide range of songs, from Crystal Gayle's "Talking in Your Sleep," which seems to be only country in name to Loretta Lynn's autobiographical "Coal Miner's Daughter" and Dolly Parton's sweet "Here You Come Again." Charley Pride's "Kiss an Angel Good Morning" and Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy" are other highlights.
