"I'm Not Lisa" sounded like nothing else on the radio in the summer of 1975. Taken at face value, it's what you might call a typical country weeper, complete with requisite wailing steel guitar in the background. But in an era when much of what one heard on the radio felt forced and/or artificial, Jessi Colter's song sounded like a breath of fresh air, cutting right through everything around it.
This was Colter's only crossover hit, but she obviously was a talented singer and songwriter. Most people know her as the wife of Waylon Jennings, but even before that, she had been married to Duane Eddy. I don't know if she's ever written a book, but I'm sure she has some great stories to tell.
