Format: Audio CD
This Time-Life collection of the 20 greatest female country singers of the 1950's through the 1970's has been such a blockbuster success in the television commercial hawking it has been parodied on Saturday Night Live with Jennifer Aniston! This is truly a historic collection of legendary performances that every country music fan should own, spanning from Kitty Wells in the early 50's to Barbara Mandrell in the late 70's. These are the ORIGINAL recordings too! Almost every song on this CD was an essential ground-breaker for country music, a true landmark record! These are songs ("The End of the World", "Ode to Billie Joe", "Rose Garden", "Help Me Make it Through the Night" etc. etc.) that even those with just a passing knowledge of country music are well familiar with and many of these ladies - notably Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton - are true American pop culture legends. Every song and every performance is truly a classic unforgettably performed by as extraordinary a collection of female vocalists as any music genre ever had in a single generation. Certainly today's country "divas" cannot compete with these QUEENS. Every artist here is represented with her signature hit with the curious exceptions of Kitty Wells (her classic "Making Believe" is featured instead of the historic "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels"), Donna Fargo ("Funny Face" may have been a bigger pop crossover but "Happiest Girl in the Whole USA" is surely Donna's most famous song), and Brenda Lee (represented by "Break it to Me Gently" instead of say, "I'm Sorry"). Lee's presence on this collection is the only sour note for me; yes she was a legendary pop artist who recorded in Nashville but this does not make her a country artist.Read more ›

I totally agree with the first reviewer. Not only is this an awesome collection of Classic Country Queens; but, the sound and quality of this CD is excellent. If you are a fan of classic country music, especially the ladies, this CD is a MUST for your collection.

Queens of Country / Classic Country series / Time Life single CD: With only 20 tracks, this CD is obviously incomplete, but for what it contains, it's simply Great!
Five Stars

Time Life also has a 2-CD set with this same title (even the same album picture) which has 30 songs (why only 10 more instead of 20 more is a mystery to me).

---------------------
A little info on the Time Life Country Classics:

Time Life has single CDs under the title of "Best of Classic Country" divided into decades so there is a single CD under that name for the "50's", "60's", "70's" and "80's".

Time Life also has many single CDs under the general term of "Country Classics". These titles include:
- Kings of Country
- Queens of Country
- God, Family, Country
- Road songs
- Great Story Songs
- More Great Story Songs
- Crazy Country Hits
- Sweet Country Ballads
- Honky Tonk Heroes
- Great Country Gospel
and several (many many) more titles. These disks are all very good to great, but there is a lot of songs that are repeated from one disk to another.

Good assortment of female country singers. I am not a country fan, but I bought this for my dad and he really enjoyed it.
