PostHeaderIcon Forgotten Artist, Liz Anderson ~ Walk Out Backwards

Liz Anderson (b.13 January 1930) whose real name is Elizabeth Jane Haaby, was born in Roseau, Minnesota to a poor, religious family. Liz started singing and playing with a mandolin at the age of eight at her local church. In 1957, the family moved to Sacramento, California. The limited popularity at the time of country music in California led Anderson to start writing songs. Liz is the mother of country singer Lynn Anderson. Anderson began publishing her songs and made friends within the burgeoning country music community in Bakersfield during the early 1960s. Some of the first hits from her pen were Be Quiet Mind by Del Reeves and Pick of the Week, which was recorded by Roy Drusky in 1964. In 1965, Merle Haggard recorded her song All My Friends Are Gonna Be Strangers. Anderson won a BMI award for the song. Anderson published over 260 songs during her career and earned five BMI awards.

PostHeaderIcon Jardín de rosas Duncan Dhu I Never Promised You a Rose Garden cover donquijote1974

Nada más lejos de la realidad, pues se trata de una canción de Joe South pero que fue popularizada en 1971 por Lynn Anderson. Dime tu nombre, y te haré reina en un jardín de rosas tus ojos miran hacia el lugar dónde se oculta el día. Has podido ver donde morirán los oscuros sueños que cada día vienen y van, soy el dueño del viento y el mar. Al pasar el tiempo despertarás y descubrirás cientos de rosas a tu alrededor, hoy la luna y mañana el sol. Y tú sin saber aún quién eres, desde el país donde mueren las flores, dime que aún creerás en mí.
