Raven presents the definitive, multi-label hit collection of the great Country artist CHARLIE RICH. A Rich Collection 1960-1978 compiles 27 of his finest recordings drawn from his years with Sun, Groove, Smash, RCA and Epic Records. Known as The Silver Fox, Rich was one the great Country stars of the 1960s and 1970s, becoming best known for his string of lush, Billy Sherrill-produced countrypolitan hits of the mid-70s. Not only was he one of the best selling artists in modern Country (with nine #1 hits), but also he scored a #1 cross-over hit on the Billboard Pop chart as well. Throughout his career Rich has been able to blend country, jazz, blues, gospel, rockabilly and soul into a winning formula. Starting with his first rockabilly hit Lonely Weekends', produced in 1960 by Sam C. Phillips, this collection proceeds through his foot-stomping 1963 hit on Groove Big Boss Man', his 1965 Top 40 Pop hit on Smash Mohair Sam' and on to his amazing run of #1s during the 1970s on Epic. These include Behind Closed Doors', The Most Beautiful Girl', A Very Special Love Song', There Won't Be Any More', I Don't See Me In Your Eyes Anymore', I Love My Friend', Rollin' with the Flow' and On My Knees'. In addition there are a further five Top 10 hits and four that made the Top 50 - making 20 chart hits in total - plus a selection of key B-sides and quality album tracks. With 27 tracks, 75 minutes of superb quality audio, detailed liner notes and color booklet this is an essential collection for the Country music aficionado.
