Classic Tracks from a Country Queen
"Tee" | LA | 03/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is a reissue of vintage RCA recordings Connie Smith made during her decade at that label. They include one of her last songs for the label ("Love is the Look You're Looking For") before she moved over to Columbia and her outstanding remake of Doug Kershaw's "Louisiana Man" which is one of my top five favorite Connie tracks of alltime. Of course the history-making "Once A Day" is on the album, still the longest stint at number one by a female vocalist ever on the Billboard country singles chart. The first seven songs are among Connie's greatest hits, "Young Love" a duet with Nat Stuckey was a remake of the Sonny James classic that alas was not particularly successful although they sing well together. The album concludes with two covers Connie did of Connie Francis' "My Heart Has A Mind of it's Own" and Anita Bryant's "Paper Roses", both recorded years before Susan Raye and Marie Osmond respectively topped the country charts with remakes! There aren't enough Connie Smith CDS around in my opinion, she's one of the finest singers Nashville ever produced and continues to wow audiences today at the Grand Ole Opry and on tour."
Excellent Connie Smith Collection

"If you're looking for Connie's megahit Once A Day (one of the greatest Country songs ever), and you like an upbeat blend of Country/Western and Rock and Roll with strong choral and orchestral backing, this is the CD to get. You'll probably like most if not all of the songs; My Heart Has A Mind Of Its Own is particularly good (C. Smith does it as well as C. Francis, and I'm a CF fan). Even Young Love, never one of my favorites, has a first-class arrangement (as do all of the songs on this CD) that elevates it above the ordinary. Highly recommended."
