RETROSPECTIVE was designed to be a closing statement of Rosanne Cash's sixteen remarkable years on Columbia Records. Rosanne Cash was certainly the most important artist to emerge in the 1980s and is one of the most valuable artists in the history of contemporary music. From the flawless interpretive Country albums she recorded in the 1980s to her riveting all-original releases in the 1990s, Cash has proven herself to be a master at recorded craft, and her exceptional catalog proves it (or whats left of her valuable catalog). RETROSPECTIVE is a companion piece to 1989's HITS 1979-1989, but is a CD with a different feel and purpose. It includes the smaller hits from Cash's last three interpretive albums, three songs each from INTERIORS and THE WHEEL, two outtakes, a live recording, a song from a tribute album, and two new recordings. These fifteen songs are a treasure chest of incredible music. Cash writes an introduction included in the liner notes about her experiences making this music. I'd love to take her advice about buying her old albums, but thanks to the Sony Music Executive(s) who have screws loose, only two of her original albums remain available. Considering these albums are packed with some of the best Country music ever released, Sony's actions are unacceptable, not to mention remarkably dumb. Cash is such an expert singer she makes Faith Hill and Shania Twain and company look pretty ordinary. But as terrific as she is an interpreter, she's even better as a writer.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
RETROSPECTIVE opens with a stunning cover of Elvis Costello's "Our Little Angel". Cssh's delivery is stunning, she is in complete command of the song.

Having long been a fan of Roseanne Cash;I picked this cd up when I noticed one of the tracks is "I'm Only Sleeping",her remake of the Beatles classic. She did a great job with this and every other song on the album, it makes a great companion to her Greatest Hits cd and all her others,for that matter.

This cd came out in 1995. It has some songs that had been released and were major hits like Runaway Train which is one of my favorite songs of her's. That slide guitar is a killer. And It Hasn't Happened Yet. It also has album tracks like Pink Bedroom which is probably my favorite none hit of hers.
And it has some new songs also. With 15 songs all together on this cd. This cd is one that really doesn't fit any catagory. It is just a very good cd,.

some of her stuff moves me in dramatic ways, "blue moon with heart ache" is one, the steel guitar is unreal, but other wise the rest of it, not so much.

While this has a decent capture of much of her music - it really isn't a complete retrospective. There are big gaps in her career that are completely ignored - right or wrong (pun intended).

The previously release selections are good, though I've never been a fan of 'Seventh Avenue'. It is the unreleased portions for which I purchased this disk.

Doc Pomus' "I Count the Tears" is well done and should have garnered some kind of airplay - in my opinion. I've always been a fan of Cash's version of "All Come True", a cover from World Party. But it really is her live cover of Steve Goodman's "A Lover is Forever" that makes the disk.

The disk is out of print now, but if you can buy certain tracks electronically, I would suggest seeking them out and downloading them. Legally, of course! :)
