CD Reviews

A Great Cross-section of Charly's work!
07/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As most Charly McClain fans know, Charly's sweet distinctive voice has disappeared from the country music scene. If you ask todays country music fans if they know the name Charly McClain, often times you will get a puzzled answer "no". That is a shame. She was among the first wave of the contemporary country sound.The double CD Anthology is the best compilation of her work to date. It gives you the earliest recordings from her debut of the late 70's to the more contemporary sound of late 80's. This release is very important as a large portion of these tracks were unavailable due to the out-of-print statis of the several original albums Charly had recorded since 1977.The packaging is very well thought out. Each CD printed with a different photo of Charly--picture discs of sorts. This collection stirs that curiosity of why Charly is not still recording. You cannot go wrong by obtaining your own copy of Anthology. It is more than just a greatest hits collection. It is a true cross-section of Charly's work."
A great one-stop shop for Charly's classic Epic recordings

"This is the Charly McClain compilation to buy as it you will get 2 CD's, with 34 tracks spanning her entire career on Epic Records which is what draws the consumer in seeking this compilation. In addition to all of her charted singles released, you will get many choice album cuts and lesser known singles. The liner note booklet features not only the liner notes, but it also features some publicity photos and thumbnails of many of her original albums that you now have to go to the used vinyl shops in order to buy them although "Portfolio" which is a single disc greatest hits album was released on CD and the same with the "Biggest Hits" comp pictured was also released on CD. The only reason why the singles from her Mercury album were not included is not because they didn't go in the top 40 is that they would have to spend extra money licensing the songs from Polygram (now Universal Music), in other words for copyright reasons. As I said, if you are lucky to find this 2 CD set, snatch it up right away and this is what is going to replace "Ten Year Anniversary" (which has only 10 of these songs) in my collection and unfortunately Charly wasn't on hand to write comments about each of the songs included in the compilation. That said, this is the only collection of Charly McClain hits you'll ever want for your collection."
This 2 CD Collection is a MUST for any Charly McClain Fan!

"Having been a fan of Charly McClain for many years I have been unable to find any of her CD's with the songs I want. I have most of her albums but wanted some of my favorite songs on a CD to listen to in the truck. I now have this 2CD Collection and it is awesome. It has all my favorites plus some I had never heard. I agree...what a talent that so many could learn from."
