Ray Price - I Won't Mention It Again LP
Still sealed, new old stock. Shrink is starting to come off in upper right corner.
The singer/songwriter movement wrought fundamental changes in the lyrics, chord progressions, and attitudes of country music -- changes that were arguably more profound than those of the Nashville sound era. Whereas the Nashville sound was a production style that draped essentially "country" music in pop trappings, the singer/songwriters materially altered the nature of the songs. Kris Kristofferson was one of the leading forces in the world of progressive country in the early '70s, and I Won't Mention It Again paired legendary honky tonker Ray Price with Kristofferson's songs. The result was very successful: the title track spent three weeks at number one and nearly reached the pop Top 40 (thanks to the hipness and rock orientation of Kristofferson's style), and "I'd Rather Be Sorry" was a respectable crossover hit as well.
