DOTTIE WEST AND THE HEARTACHES: DOTTIE WEST, BILL WEST and JIMMIE JOHNSONVintage black and white band photo of one of Grammy Award-winning country singer Dottie West's first bands, Dottie West and the Heartaches. Signed by Dottie West, steel guitarist and first husband Bill West and guitarist Jimmie E. Johnson Photograph signed "Best Wishes/Jimmy E. Johnson" in black ink, "Bill/West" in blue in and "Thanks-/Dottie West" in green ink. B/w, 10x8 overall, 9½x6½ image, one surface. Photo by Moeller Talent, Inc. Captioned: "DOTTIE WEST and the HEARTACHES". This is a band photo of one of Dottie West's first bands, Dottie West and the Heartaches. This band was formed in 1966, two years after she became the first woman country performer to earn a Grammy Award. It's also been signed by guitarist JIMMIE JOHNSON and steel guitarist BILL WEST, who was also Dottie West's first husband. DOTTIEWEST (1932-1991, born Dorothy Marie Marsh in McMinnville, Tennessee) is one of the most controversial women singers during Nashville sound era in country music, as well as the first woman country performer to win a Grammy, for her song Here Comes My Baby Back Again (1964). West started singing on a local radio station just before her 13th birthday and on the TV show Landmark Jamboree after graduating from Tennessee Tech, where she studied music. She started recording in 1959 and scored her first hit in 1963, Let Me Off at the Corner, which peaked at No. 29 on Billboard's Country Singles Charts. West's career and her plaintive songs took off after that. She appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and put 14 songs in the Country Singles Top 10 between 1964 and 1981, including the chart-toppers Every Time Two Fools Collide (1978); All I Ever Need Is You (1979); A Lesson in Leaving (1980); Are You Happy Baby? (1981); and What Are We Doin' In Love (1981), which also peaked at No. 7 on the Adult Contemporary charts and cracked the Top 20 on the Pop Singles Charts. West is controversial because of her abrupt image change in 1972, after marrying second husband Byron Metcalf. Both her songs and her onstage costumes became more provocative, with an accompanying increase in her commercial success. This culminated with a photo spread in the men's magazine Oui and a role in a touring production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas in the 1980s. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Pen skipped while writing Johnson and Bill West's signatures, which are still legible. Poor adhesion in Johnson's signature, which is still legible. Light impressions and scratches (not visible head-on) and scuff marks on image. Otherwise in fine condition.
