    Interesting – Glen acquits himself well but David Houston (who recorded the hit with Tammy) was a much better blend for Tammy’s voice

      I agree that it’s an interesting rendition. Tammy also recorded the song with George Jones who performed it with her on their package show in the early 1970’s. Glen’s versatile voice seemed to blend well with just about everyone. But for me it’s hard to top David Houston’s vocal for this country classic. His soaring tenor blending with Tammy’s emotional delivery made their version iconic in my mind. Hard to improve on that.
