Heart attack claims Lynn Anderson, 67; her Rose Garden held record of biggest selling album by
female country artist for 27 years

Anderson's family said she died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., on Thursday. She is survived by her partner, Mentor Williams, her father, and her children, Lisa Sutton, Melissa Hempel and Gray Stream. Her parents were country songwriters Casey and Liz Anderson. Anderson was born in Grand Forks, N.D., but raised in Sacramento. An accomplished equestrian, she was voted California Horse Show Queen in 1966. Her personal life was occasionally tumultuous.

Here is the quadraphonic release of Rose Garden:

From the YouTube annotation:
This is "Rose Garden" by Lynn Anderson taken from an original SQ Quadraphonic LP and remastered by me. If you have the standard stereo version of this song, which is the only version of this song ever released on any CD to date, then you will appreciate this one because it sounds virtually identical to the 45 rpm version that was released to radio in 1970. The SQ Quad version is also 13 seconds longer too. This is the only version that has THAT sound that made it an instant hit! Enjoy this truly rare version.

And here's Joe South, who wrote Rose Garden and who passed away in 2012, also of a heart attack:
