5.0 out of 5 stars The best from her peak years April 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lacy's voice is reminiscent of Tanya Tucker's, but richer. It may be significant that Lacy's most successful years coincided with Tanya's period in the wilderness, but both of them are magnificent singers whose music has given me a lot of pleasure.
This collection includes all her important hits from her period with Columbia from 1980 to 1986, plus three of her Universal / Capitol tracks from 1989. Among those hits is her debut, Crazy blue eyes, her signature song, 16th avenue and excellent covers of Tennessee waltz and Dream baby. There are a couple of duets here - It's a dirty job (with Bobby Bare) and Size seven round (with George Jones). Slow moving outlaw, a duet with Willie Nelson, is missing but can be found on some of his compilations. Hillbilly girl with the blues is a song that Lacy wrote about herself. Hard times, though not written by Lacy, is clearly something that she understands through bitter experience.
This is by far the strongest compilation yet released of Lacy's music, but there are still plenty of gems that have yet to appear on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hillbilly Girl knows The Blues June 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Those Crazy Blue Eyes, those mavericks that don't settle down. That Hillbillly Girl With the Blues. She's been beating those Hard Times with that voice that ranges from a sexy whiskey voice to a Whisper that tingles your spine.
Lacy can bounce you around and get your foot stomping or she can share a broken heart with you. She is raucus and she is mellow. She can growl or purr like a kitten.
Anthology puts her best together. Crazy Blue Eyes has to be the best of the lot but how do you pass up Tennesee Waltz, Hard Times, Whisper and my second favorite Hillbilly Girl with the Blues.
Lacy is a true queen of country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect ! June 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a very desirable set of Dalton's music to own.
If you love the intrigue and warmth in her earthy, whiskey voice,
and her ease of drawing you into the stories she sings,
this is a must have 20 track "Anthology"!
Twenty one songs are here, although, "The heart" and "Hard luck ace" are together.

This is a great collection of her career.
Lacy J. Dalton had a string of hits make the country chart from 1979 to 1990.
Here are 21 of her 24 charted singles.

This anthology starts with her first single, "Crazy blue eyes" in 1979,
& continues with 7 top 10 hits, 10 top 20 hits, and ends with her last hit in 1990, "Black coffee".

FOOTNOTE: If your a Dalton fan and interested in all her singles,
here's a list of Dalton's other 5 charted singles that weren't included in this set.
1. "Windin' down" 1983.
2. "The night has a heart of it's own" 1985.
3. "I'm a survivor" 1989.
4. the complete version of "The heart" 1989.
5. the complete version of "Hard luck ace" 1989.

One other noteable song is "Wild turkey", the b-side of "Everybody makes mistakes" in 1981,
THAT is a great Dalton song!

It seems you can't get very many of her hits together any place else.
All of this c.d. is charted single releases.
All original recordings and excellent sound.
This is a great compilation!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest hits plus more! August 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After listening to sound bites of this cd, I knew I had to order it! It contains most if not all of Lacy's big hits, plus some extra tracks. At first the song "Tennessee Waltz" seems strange as compared to the original by Patti Page 50 years ago, but it grows on you, and you remember that it's Lacy's version. I wish SONY had given credit to the male volalist on "It's a Dirty Job" - the voice sounds familiar, and he helps make the song. If you're a Lacy Dalton fan, buy it!
