When this one appeared from my record box, the first thing that came into my mind was this scene from the Blues Brothers. :)
Stand By Your Man” was a huge international hit, but for some reason not released in most European countries until 1975.

“It Keeps Slipping My Mind” was the third song recorded in this session. All three tracks were included in Wynette’s album “Stand By Your Man” (Epic BN-26451) in 1969.
