Jessi is the third studio album released by American country music artist, Jessi Colter. It was her second release for Capitol Records and was produced by Ken Mansfield and husband, Waylon Jennings. It was released in January 1976, becoming one of two albums issued by Colter in 1976.

Background[edit]

Jessi was released following the success of Colter's country pop crossover hit, "I'm Not Lisa" and all of the songs on the album were written entirely by Colter.[3] The album spawned one major hit, "It's Morning (And I Still Love You)," which peaked at #11 on the Hot Country Songs chart in early 1976. Its second single, "Without You" did not make the Top 40. The album peaked at #4 on the Top Country Albums chart and #109 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.[4]

Allmusic reviewed Jessi and gave it four and a half out of five stars. Reviewer, Jim Worbois stated he was surprised that, "this record wasn't more popular than it was. Many of these songs are better than her big hit."[3]
