Linda Martell was the first African-American woman to make the country charts and to appear at the Grand Ole Opry, and helped lay the groundwork for future artists of color in the genre. Despite multiple TV appearances, a dozen appearances at the Opry, and some big hits - including "Color Him Father", "Before the Next Teardrop Falls" and "Bad Case of the Blues" - her 1970 debut album, Color Me Country, would also be her last. Now the album was remastered for its first vinyl pressing in over half a century for Record Store Day 2022. The reissue was mastered by Dave Gardner and pressed on transparent orange vinyl at Furnace Record Pressing.
