The best of her '60s and '70s RCA years, including her early Top 10 smash Here Comes My Baby (which made her the first female country artist to win a Grammy!) plus her hits Country Sunshine; Would You Hold It Against Me; Paper Mansions; Country Girl; Let Me Off at the Corner ; the rare B-sides Night Life and The Cold Hand of Fate , and eight more!

Format: Audio CD
I first came across Dottie's music soon after I started collecting music seriously in the late seventies, because of her excellent duets with Kenny Rogers. My immediate thoughts were (and remain) Wow! what a voice. Great though the music from her seven-year stint with United Artists was, it is the music from her fourteen years with RCA that made her one of my all-time favorites. I bought all but one of her LP's in my vinyl days (no easy matter) and I'd love to be able to buy a boxed set, but somehow I doubt such a box will ever be released.
This CD is an excellent introduction to Dottie's music. It does not contain all her biggest RCA hits - they can be found on The essential Dottie West - but it does contain the absolute essentials (Here comes my baby, Would you hold it against me, Country girl, Paper mansions and Country sunshine). These five tracks, plus What's come over my baby, There's a story going round (with Don Gibson) and Slowly (with Jimmy Dean) appear on both.
Of the eight tracks on this collection but not not the other, four (Let me off at the corner, Careless hands, If it's all right with you and Before the ring on your finger turns green) were hits. The other four, including a stunning cover of Night life, were album tracks, two of which were also B sides.
Dottie had a lot of hits with RCA, many of which have yet to appear on CD. Sadly, she didn't have enough really big hits (all those are available on CD). Maybe some of the other minor hits will appear on CD in due course. One of these (I'm only a woman) was covered by Jeannie C Riley and her version can be found on one of her CD's (which I've also reviewed). What it proves is that Dottie's minor hits are every bit as good as some other singer's major hits. There's no justice in this world.

This is a very good CD for people who remember the late great Dottie West or those who have never experienced the range of her talent. Previously I had more exposure to her later recordings especially the ones with Kenny Rogers but what a treat this early material is. A must for any fan of country music!

I was making a DVD in memory of my sister for my neices and this album had two songs on it that said what I wanted to say in music. Just what I wanted. The old ones are the best!

Dottie West was a top country music star for nearly 25 years, winning a slew of major awards and nominations and her death in 1991 made the cover of People magazine yet there is an astonishingly small number of CDs on the market of this Nashville icon today. It's certainly music lovers loss because at her best, Dottie was one of the finest singers in any genre of music. She's best recalled today for "Country Sunshine", her Kenny Rogers duets and her pop-country hits of the early 1980's but she was at her most unforgettable as a vocalist at RCA Records in the 1960's and early 1970's, specializing in heartfelt ballads about "The Cold Hand of Fate", to quote one of the songs here. This entry in the RCA COUNTRY LEGENDS series is an outstanding example of her best work on the label. Her Grammy winning "Here Comes My Baby" is here as well as such classic tracks as "Country Girl" and "Paper Mansions". I wish the latterday fans of the great Patsy Cline who keep her cd sales strong would give her best friend Dottie a try, you'll find Dottie's RCA period was very much inspired and influenced by Patsy yet thoroughly a female vocalist with her own style and greatness.

I recently ordered this exceptionally good CD from Amazon and I listen to it almost every day.

It starts out with Dottie's first #1 hit, Here Comes My Baby (1965). Country Sunshine, What's Come Over My Baby, Night Life, duets with Jimmy Dean and Don Gibson, along with many more early Dottie West cuts, fill out this excellent offering.

This CD is a classic and should be a part of every country music fan's collection.

Dottie has a very unique voice. Her music was popular when I was in high school and college. No country music today compares to what she sang when she was alive.
