About "Angel In Your Arms"

Reba McEntire is the debut studio album by American country music singer Reba McEntire. It was released on August 15, 1977, by Mercury Records. It featured her first single "I Don't Want to Be a One Night Stand", as well as a cover of the Jennifer Warnes hit "Right Time of the Night", and the Hot hit "Angel in Your Arms". Three of the album's singles cracked the Billboard Country charts, but the album was not a commercial success, failing to chart.McEntire signed with Mercury in November 1975 under producer Glenn Keener, who recorded one song with her in January 1976 in Nashville: "I Don't Want to Be a One Night Stand". Keener laid a sophisticated production style on the song, with lush strings and vocal chorus. "I Don't Want to Be a One Night Stand", was released as a single, climbing the country charts in May 1976 to peak at number 88. Coincidentally, McEntire married in June, 1976 and graduated from college in December, 1976. Mercury fired Keener during a period of downsizing, and McEntire was shifted to producer Jerry Kennedy. Kennedy supervised further recording sessions in September 1976 and April 1977. The second single, "(There's Nothing like the Love) Between a Woman and a Man", peaked at number 86 in March 1977, and the third single, "Glad I Waited Just For You" charted at number 88 in August at the same time as the album was released. None of these singles nor the album provided McEntire with royalty income—her advances and the label's production expenses were greater than sales receipts. McEntire saw her first royalty payment from the album in 1988, years after she left Mercury.In a retrospective review, MusicHound criticized the album, saying this was "the sad sound of a naive 22-year-old singer overwhelmed by clunky, reverb-heavy production that employs backing singers with the subtlety of the cavalry." AllMusic praised the album, writing that it "rewards" the listener, even though fans of McEntire's contemporary sound would likely consider it too old-fashioned. Against her wishes, McEntire's next five albums with Mercury continued this heavy style of production. She began to take control of her sound after signing with MCA in 1983, delivering her most personal statement, My Kind of Country, in 1984.Reba McEntire was re-issued on CD and cassette tape in 1993 and released digitally in 2012.
