Connie Smith - Greatest Hits on Monument
Genres: Country, Pop, Christian

"Lady Smith made 2 Lps for Monument before retiring. Both are gems. Here is a composite of some of these pearls. Some of the songs on this CD have too much echo added to it and several really good songs have been left out, particularly her version of YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE. By far the best version of this song I have ever heard. The original was sappy, Connie makes this an almost spiritual experience. But then, anything Connie Smith sings is an event. Let's hope to hear much more from her."
This One Is Not "ESSENTIAL"

"By the time Connie arrived at Monument in the late '70s, her Billboard days were coming to a close. This CD contains her final 2 (of 39) chart hits, I "Want to Be Your Everything" and "Loving You Baby". High marks also go to " Coming Around", "Smooth Sailin'" and especially "Don't Make Me Dream". That one is another example of Connie giving some solid, unsolicited female to male advice. The rest of this release does not match the quality of her "Essential" album. Just as some Ann Rule books are for everyone and some for her fans, this release is for Connie lovers. The recommendation here is to try "Essentials" first. If that makes one a Connie lover, then proceed. "Lovers" can add a fourth star."
