Editorial Reviews

(5-CD LP-sized boxed set with 76-page hardcover book, 151 tracks. Playing time 408:56) First-ever reissue of the majority of these classic Smith recordings! More than a dozen previously unissued recordings written by classic country songwriters such as Dallas Frazier, Kris Kristofferson, Mel Tillis and Don Gibson! Includes all the recordings from the years that fans and Connie herself call her strongest. Upbeat hard country, searing heartbreak ballads, sacred songs, and even some Smith takes on pop of the day. Her duet albums with Dallas Frazier and Nat Stuckey are included.

Connie Smith belongs in the top tier of all country singers. Or, as Dolly Parton once said, ''There's only three real female singers: Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, and Connie Smith. The rest of us are only pretending.'' What earned her the respect of her peers and sales that number in the millions? Clarity. Emotion. Sheer power. And some of the era's greatest songs.

This 5-CD set includes all of Connie's recordings from February 1968 through November 1972. It follows Bear Family's Born To Sing set that comprised all of Connie's RCA recordings from 1964 until '67. Included here are enduring hits like Run Away Little Tears, Just One Time, Where Is My Castle? and If It Ain't Love (Let's Leave It Alone), as well as How Great Thou Art, one of the most requested of all Smith songs. And included in their entirety are prized Connie Smith LPs, including her duet collaborations with Nat Stuckey and Dallas Frazier and her modern sacred song collection Come Along And Walk With Me. This set also includes a book incorporating Barry Mazor's full-length exploration of the intersection of Connie's music and life during these years, previously unseen photos from Connie's own collection, and a detailed discography by Richard Weize.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Second Half of Connie's RCA Discography January 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yup, all the songs are here from the rest of her RCA albums recorded between 1968 and 1974. Connie has no peer in country music. She is "THE VOICE"...the Cadillac, the Rolls Royce, the Mercedes of singers all rolled into one. Dolly Parton said it best when she said that the rest of the girls in Country Music were just pretending and that Connie was the REAL DEAL. She is. This CD set proves it. There is nothing like the "Connie Smith SOund"....steel guitar and THAT VOICE! NO ONE BUT NO ONE can put a niche in her. She can't be beat....(Sorry McEntire fans.....McEntire aint fit to wipe Connie's boots). This CD output is excellent, remastered for sound quality and just as good as the first put out by BEAR family. I only hope there is a third boxed set out there with her Columbia and Monument Recordings. Enjoy country music the true way....the Connie Smith way!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am thrilled to be able to add these recordings to my collection. I've been looking for this music to come available as I was too young to get it in the 60's. Thank you Bear for giving me the opportunity to enjoy that wonderful voice of Connie Smith.

Connie Smith has one of the great voices of country music. This is the 2nd set from Bear Family Records, which completes all of Connie's RCA recordings. Great songs, wonderful arrangements, and Connie's beautiful voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Connie Smith at her best May 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a must have for any Connie Smith fan. My only complaint is most of the cd's won't play on cd player, only in computer. The accompanying book is great. Full of photos and good biography.
