CD Reviews

For Collector's and Christy Fans
05/23/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This Raven Records (an Australia based label) release is a most eclectic collection of Christy recordings indeed. For fans, it's well worth owning because it includes some rare singles that have never been reissued on CD - notably "The Banjo," "Down the Road I Go," "There But For Fortune" and Mike Settle's "If I Could Start My Life Again" (all in mono mixes, unfortunately). In an effort to represent some of the group's later work for Columbia, they included some real duds, e.g., "Where Did Our Love Go" and "Blowin' In The Wind." The sound quality varies, but is generally acceptable. It sounds as if they used commercial CD releases as sources for many of the more familiar tracks. (The opening of "Blowin' In the Wind" is clipped just as it is on a 1996 Vanguard compilation.) The liner notes -- while they include some interesting tidbits and rare photos -- are peppered with inaccuracies. Nonetheless, if you're interested in the history of the group, you'll find some useful background information and perspective on the changes in the group's sound during the 1962-1968 period covered."

"I like this CD because it shows the various generations of the group and how their sound evolved over the years. Plus, there are songs that are not found on any other album by this group...and that is always a plus!"
