Biography

"I went back to where I was born, and these songs started arriving in me," says Rosanne Cash. "All these things happened that made me feel a deeper connection to the South than I ever had. We started finding these great stories, and the melodies that went with those experiences."
With The River and the Thread, Cash has added the next chapter to a remarkable period of ... Read more in Amazon's Rosanne Cash Store

Raven presents the defining collection of ROSANNE CASH, an unstoppable force on the US Country charts throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. This unique, deluxe compilation includes all her big hits, key album tracks and rarities in a stunning career-defining, 21-track, 77-minute overview. Includes her Number 1 single-only version of the Beatles' I Don't Want To Spoil The Party, her Rodney Crowell Number 1 duet It's Such A Small World, and her stunning versions of Joni Mitchell's River and Doc Pomus' I Count the Tears.

Format: Audio CD
For a few years in the eighties, Rosanne was quite successful but, like her stepsister Carlene Carter, she was determined to do things her way and this may have prevented her from becoming an even bigger star. Generally, Rosanne's music could be described as country with a soft rock edge, as you would expect from somebody whose husband and record producer during her most successful years was the great Rodney Crowell.

This compilation includes every track that I regard as essential in a collection of Rosanne Cash's hits is here. Committed fans will note the absence of a few other country hits including Couldn't do nothing right, Take me take me and It hasn't happened yet, but they aren't essential in a collection like this and all can be found elsewhere. Rosanne's first four country albums have been paired in twofers while her fifth, King's record shop (generally regarded as her finest album) is available separately, as are some of her later albums.

Rosanne had eleven number one hits on the American country charts (all included here, of course), the first of them being Seven year ache, which became her signature song, and the last being It's such a small world, a duet with then-husband Rodney Crowell that originally appeared on his highly-acclaimed album, Diamonds and dirt. Rosanne also became the first (and perhaps only) artist to take a Beatles cover to the top of the country charts, which she did with one of their album tracks (I don't want to spoil the party). Another great cover that Rosanne took to number one is Tennessee flat top box, originally recorded by her father in the early sixties.

I first became a big fan of Rosanne Cash with her "Rhythm And Romance" album, an album that is still a big favorite of mine. Her "King's Record Shop" is also a big fav. Several years ago Columbia put out a Hits collection for Rosanne, it was good, but was missing one song in particular that I really love, her #4 hit from 1982, "Ain't No Money". This new import collection includes that song along with 20 others, including all of her #1 country hits. I'm surprised that Sony hasn't issued an "Essential" album for Rosanne yet, perhaps this album will give them the boost they need. This set is missing a track or two that should have made the cut, "Hold On" from 1986, but for the most part it's a nice upgrade from the previous "Greatest Hits" collection. It is the best collection of Rosanne's work out there right now however. It also has a 12 page booklet full of photos and info about Rosanne and each track.
The track listing is as follows:
Right or Wrong, No Memories Hangin''Round, Anybody's Darlin', Seven Year Ache, My Baby Thinks He's A Train, Blue Moon With Heartache, Ain't No Money, I Wonder, I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me, Never Be You, The Way We Make A Broken Heart, Tennessee Flat Top Box, Runaway Train, I Don't Want To Spoil The Party, If You Change Your Mind, It's Such A Small World, Dance With The Tiger, What We Really Want, Sleeping In Paris, River, I Count The Tears

I've followed Rosanne Cash since "Seven Year Ache" and this collection does a good job of covering her time at Columbia Records. What's missing? "Hold On" from "Rhythm and Romance", more songs from "The Wheel" and her contribution to the Yoko Ono tribute album "Nobody Sees Me Like You Do". This is the best hits compilation out there and if you don't have any of the others, definitely pick this one up.

NOTE TO SONY/BMG: Now that you've done "Essentials" with most of your artists, how about giving Rosanne a double disc treatment? And now that the two of you are one company, how about releasing Rosanne's German Ariola release from the late 70s?

Even though I did not listen as actively to Rosanne Cash until her harder edged Black Cadillac CD from 2006, I had always liked the soft rock spin that she took on traditional country music during her earlier, formative years in the 80’s and 90’s, which is the time period from which the majority of songs on this disc are drawn. As the title would suggest, the songs on Blue Moons and Broken Hearts are primarily about heartbreak, a topic about which Roseanne Cash writes eloquently and sings beautifully. The music, especially the pedal steel frills, perfectly support the bittersweet, melancholy mood of most of the songs. I would like to point out that there are several other good collections of Rosanne Cash’s music out there, including the Very Best of Rosanne Cash and The Essential Rosanne Cash. In my opinion, Blue Moons and Broken Hearts is a worthwhile addition to any collection of her music, even if you already have one or both of the other two compilations. Be advised that all 16 of the songs on The Very Best of RC also appear on the subsequent and more comprehensive two disc collection, The Essential RC. There are 9 songs that appear on all three of these compilations (No Memories Hangin’ ‘Round, Seven Year Ache, My Baby Thinks He’s A Train, I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me, Never Be You, The Way We Make A Broken Heart, Sleeping In Paris, What We Really Want, and Tennessee Flat Top Box), all of which obviously belong on any Rosanne Cash collection, even though I must admit that I never have been a big fan of her cover of her dad’s Tennessee Flat Top Box.Read more ›
