Moments is the nineteenth studio album released by American country artist Barbara Mandrell. The album was released in August 1986 on MCA Records and was produced by Tom Collins. It would be her final studio release for the MCA label before switiching to EMI America Records in 1987.

Background[edit]

Moments was recorded in June 1986 in Nashville, Tennessee, two months before its official release.[1] Moments contained ten tracks of newly recorded material. Mandrell's musical style and sound changed for the album, as most of its tracks had a significant traditional country music approach, as traditional musical styles were reentering country music. This was exemplified in such songs as the sixth track, "No One Mends a Broken Heart Like You".[2] The album was issued as an LP album, with five songs on each side of the record. The album has not since been reissued on a compact disc.[3]

Moments was not provided with any music reviews by critics including Allmusic.[2]

Release[edit]

Moments only spawned one single. The lead single was the album's sixth track "No One Mends a Broken Heart Like You". The single was released in July 1986 and peaked at #6 on the Billboard Magazine Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.[4] In addition, the single also reached #5 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart the same year. Moments was released in August 1986, a month after the single's release. The album peaked at #53 on the Billboard Magazine Top Country Albums chart after its release, Mandrell's lowest peak on the chart.[5] Shortly after its release, Mandrell left MCA Records and switched to EMI America Records in 1987.
