A pleasant surprise

"I'd honestly never heard Stella Parton before buying this compilation. All I really knew about her was the mere fact she had some moderately successful country records in the 70s and 80s. Not expecting much at all, I was utterly surprised at how much I really enjoyed this disc. Stella Parton creates some beautiful harmonies on such hits as "I Want to Hold You in My Dreams Tonight", "I'm Not Good at Goodbyes" and "Cross My Heart". With a voice similar to that of her famous sister, Parton indeed has her own style- making for some great country music. One note, however. Some of these tracks are re-records of her actual hits, so buy with caution. Throughly enjoyable is this collection."
Buy only if you like rerecords

"I am a big Stella fan and have many of her songs on '45. So I was delighted to see an anthology and could hear the old songs again without the scratches. Was very disappointed as the songs, especially the hits are rerecords. If you like the original songs, don't buy this album. If you don't really care, then the songs are close enough to be a good listen."
Don't buy this CD

"In case any of you have ever had a chance to hear the ORIGINAL versions of these songs, you might agree Stella's pretty good, though not as good as her sister. She had a string of Top 20 Country hits in the late 1970's that included one Top 10, therefore defining herself as a Nashville talent. Nevertheless, the normally incredible Renaissance pulled a fast one here and they obviously think that buyers are too stupid to realize it. These are ALL rerecordings of her music. So, if you want to try Stella, buy a record before you buy this waste of a CD."
