Please Don't Hurt Me Norma Jean
This is one of my favorite Norma Jean albums. She was the girl singer on The Porter Wagoner Show before Dolly Parton. I like them both. But Norma Jean is my favorite since she's the underdog. She's the most laid back country singer I've ever heard. She sings very simply. She's one of my favorite country artists.
There are a number of upbeat songs here, "You're Driving me out of my mind" and "A woman's gotta make a stand". The song that stands out the most is "The Shirt", a silly melodramatic song about a breakup and her ex's shirt.
