Description

By the early 1960s, not only was Connie Francis established as the most successful female singer in the world, she was easily the most prolific, cutting an average of 6 LPs and 4 or 5 singles per year. Many of her albums were themed towards specific markets, and in 1959 she released her first LP 8200;of dedicated C&W material, "Country & Western Golden Hits", which was essentially a collection of covers of recent Country hits. It was sufficiently successful that in 1962 she recorded a second similarly-structured C&W LP, "Country Music Connie Style", on which she was backed by full Nashville "A" Team, including Floyd Cramer, Grady Martin, Buddy Harman, Jerry Kennedy, Boots Randolph, Harold Bradley and Bob Moore. These two albums provide the basis for this compilation, which is augmented by a further half-dozen similarly-styled sides, including a couple of her million-selling singles, 'Everybody's Somebody's Fool' and 'Second-Hand Love' (the latter, perhaps her quintessential Countrypolitan recording); a pair of unissued rarities, 'On The Outside Looking In' and 'No One Ever Sends Me Roses'; and two further Nashville sides, 'Come On Jerry' and 'Careless Love', which appeared on her "Sings Folk Song Favorites" LP. Although much of Connie's extensive back catalogue has been reissued over the years, several of the sides featured herein have never previously appeared on CD.
