The four Foresters--Kathy, June, Kim, and Christy--grew up singing in church in Lookout Mountain, Georgia. But their sound is closer to the polished pop of the McGuire Sisters than the rousing harmonies of gospel quartets. That's not to downplay their appeal: the four present a charming jaunty form of melodic pop country spiked with light swing. Their harmonies own a compelling warmth. And their solos suggest they're all capable vocalists--especially Kim, whose husky tone recalls Wynonna Judd. Greatest Hits, released in 1989, draws only from the group's initial three albums. But it features the hits "That's What You Do (When You're in Love)," "I'd Choose You Again," and Sincerely," making it the best career retrospective available. --Michael McCall

Excellent CD, but some good hits were left off

"This is a great CD of one of the great female country groups of the eighties and nineties. The only problem I have with it is that some very good hits were left off. Hits like "Lyin' In His Arms Again", "Mama's Never Seen Those Eyes", and "Men". My feeling is that if you are going to make a "greatest hits" CD, please, make sure that all of your hits are on there before you include songs that were not really "great" hits, like "Don't You""
Traditional southern country music at its best!

"Although the Forester Sisters were at their peak before I became a country music fan, over the past few years I have "discovered" them and their beautiful vocals. Today's modern country and rock lack the soul and feeling that comes across so vividly in this collection. Songs like Letters Home, Lonely Alone, and You Again make this albulm a must have for any true country music fan! :)"
Country at it's best

"This CD is proof that country was once great and still is. 5 years ago i met the foresters sisters in a USO military show. Seeing them in person only convinced me more that they were one of the best all female groups of their time! the only one thing missing from this CD is one of their most famous songs....... "MEN". I recommend this to anyone who loves the old style country, and even the country today!"
