Little Red Shoes :: Mama, Why Is Daddy Runnin’?


Loretta Lynn’s (excellent) collaboration with Jack White, Van Lear Rose, produced, quite possibly, one of my favorite spoken word story-songs ever. Entitled “Little Red Shoes,” what some may have viewed as a throwaway track, I found to be the cornerstone of the album. Amidst the more rocked up atmosphere of the affair was this oasis of pure Loretta gold.

  1. Greetings,
    Just wanted to let you know I sampled your LL tracks. Have always been curious about this collaboration. I like it alot.
    On another note…I visit your blog regularly and enjoy it very much.
    Perhaps because there is always a high level of consistency in your posts. Anyway…I definitely see the hard work put in by you.
    Thanks for your blog and PROPS!

  2. Portland, Oregon is a wonderful track and the story behind the collaboration is really beautiful…..

  3. I’m with Casey above – always a high level of great posts here. I hadn’t heard this collaboration yet – the music reminds me of the San Francisco scene of the late 60s and early 70s – very nice stuff.
