"Connie's German hits are absolutely enchanting even if you ain't got a clue what she is singing about. Some of the songs you'll recognize from their U.S. recordings; others will be new to your ears. But all these recordings are melodic and tuneful and you'll love them!"

NICE LESS EXPENSIVE OVERVIEW

"This is one of the larger German Connie Francis CD sets. It's a good intro to her complete output in the language available on a 5 CD box set Lass Mir Bunten Traume (Let Me Paint Dreams). The only song not on this massive set is the gold record JIVE CONNIE where they have taken her German hits and overlaid a hard techno beat that drove it to the top of the European charts.
Much of the material are songs written for Connie by German composers. Those familiar with her hits, will also find some Wenn Ich Traume (When I Dream) or Where The Boys are here as well.
You don't have to speak the language (which I do) to enjoy these songs. They are melodious and catchy. Connie powerhouse vocals sells every tune in this collection.
A very nice compilation from an extremely versatile songstress (who sang in 9 languages).
CONNIE'S GERMAN HITS

"This is a better than average collection of her German hits. Some rarities and some very familiar songs. I speak German, but you need not know the language, just listen to Connie put these songs across and you'll get the message no matter what language she sings in."
