This UK release is a straight re-issue of two of Lynn's original albums on one CD. The same two CD's were released in the USA as Golden classic edition, but with a few extra tracks.

This review also appears on other pages because of Amazon's stupid linkage policy. My review is for Rose Garden: You're My Man. If you're looking at a different page, please ignore this review - or switch to that product page.

Both albums contain plenty of covers. Indeed, Rose garden was itself a cover. It was written by Joe South and originally appeared on the same album of his that included Games people play (which has also been covered by Lynn, but her version has never appeared on CD). Lynn had a major international hit with it, going high in the pop charts in Britain, America and many other countries.

Among the songs covered by Lynn on the Rose Garden album are For the good times (Kris Kristofferson), Another lonely night (Jean Shepherd), I don't want to play house (Tammy Wynette), Snowbird (Anne Murray), Sunday morning coming down (Kris Kristofferson) and It's only make believe (Conway Twitty). The original songs include two co-written by her then-husband (Your sweet love lifted me, I wish I was a little boy again) and Nothing between us, a song Lynn wrote herself.

The second album is You're my man. The title track, one of four songs that Glenn Sutton wrote or co-wrote, was a huge country hit. Most, if not all, of the other songs are covers, including Knock three times (Tony Orlando and Dawn), Proud Mary (Creedence Clearwater Revival), Help me make it through the night (Kris Kristofferson), Put your hand in the hand (first recorded by Anne Murray) and Joy to the world (Three dog night).

This is an excellent collection but you don't need it if you have the Golden classics edition.

As mentioned in another review - this is the real deal - all of the original Columbia recordings. No rerecorded music here. Nice to see a collection this complete. Lynn's later releases shine just as greatly as her earlier smashes. Great sound quality.

Lynn Anderson could sing out the telephone book and I'd be standing there, applauding and hoping for more! Her sense of timing, her phrasing and her excellent diction all combine to showcase her tremendous command of just about anything and everything she ever sang. This fine CD has all the songs from two of Lynn's albums, her incredibly successful "Rose Garden" (the largest selling album by any female country recording artist from 1971 to 1997) and "You're My Man" which also hit high on the charts! There really isn't a bad track on the CD; this music is all THAT good. The quality of the sound is every bit as good as another reviewer says it is; and the artwork incorporates the original artwork from the record albums when they were released.

"Rose Garden," a song that made it to the top of the country and pop charts shortly after it was released, gives the track set an auspicious start; Lynn sings this to perfection and I'm very impressed. The strings and guitar are used to great advantage; and I really like Lynn's rendition of "For the Good Times;" it's like listening to silk. "Another Lonely Night" has a great country flavor to it; and listen for other tracks including "I Don't Want to Play House" which Lynn delivers with all her heart and soul; "Snowbird" that has Lynn squarely front and center--which is right where Lynn belongs! "Your Sweet Love Lifted Me;" "Sunday Morning Coming Down" and "I Still Belong to You" are very well done, too.

This is simply the "BEST" collection of Lynn's years at Columbia Records available on the market today. Every recording is a original from Columbia no rerecordings. A true timeless collection of country music at is best! Buy it you will not be disappointed

I bought this CD mainly because I was looking for an original recording of Rose Garden. I had bought a couple of others only to find they were inferior re-takes of the song. This one has the original and many other good songs. Plus, it's two albums for the price of one. Highly recommended.

This CD combines Lynn Anderson's albums Rose Garden and You're My Man. Besides her own hits like Rose Garden, You're My Man and Nothing Between Us, it's mainly a collection of country covers of pop hits from the late 1960s and early 1970s and Anderson's interpretations are enjoyable. Backed by a lush, string-driven country pop sound, she delivers memorable and engaging renditions of classics like For The Good Times, I Don't Want To Play House, Proud Mary, Snowbird and It's Only Make Believe. I also love her versions of Dawn's huge 1971 hit Knock Three Times and Flying Machine, Cliff Richard's minor hit from the same year. She even makes Three Dog Night's Joy To The World her own, although I don't think she succeeds so well on Kris Kristofferson's Sunday Morning Coming Down. Somehow I just can't imagine Lynn Anderson stumbling down the stairs with a hangover on a Sunday morning, although to be fair, everybody covered this song at one time or another. Other very listenable numbers include I Can Spot A Cheater, Cry Cry Again, the gospel song Put Your Hand In The Hand and Help Me Make It Through The Night. She has a strong and warm country voice and the backing is beautiful in that early 1970s way. I love this album as it really evokes the spirit of that golden age of song.
