Full-bodied, emotional and dazzling performances by one of country's most underrated females. Spears' deep and drawling voice and dramatic delivery make songs like "Blanket On The Ground," "Stay Away From the Apple Tree" and "What I've Got In Mind" rich and wonderful. This collection, made up of United Artists material, is missing one big Spears hit -- "Mr. Walker, It's All Over", which was a Capitol recording -- but is filled with terrific stuff. Get the Hux Records CD 2-fer of "Mr. Walker It's All Over" and "Just Singin'" to complement this disc, and your Spears collection is complete.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on October 3, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Billie Jo Spears is remembered for some classic country songs including Blanket on the ground, 57 Chevrolet, What I've got in mind and Sing me an old fashioned song, three of the songs featured on this collection. However, notable omissions include Lonely hearts club and Love ain't gonna wait for us.

Most of this album consists of Billie Jo's covers of songs made famous by others including What the world needs bow is love (Jackie De Shannon), I fall to pieces (Patsy Cline), Heartaches by the number (Guy Mitchell), Always on my mind (first recorded by Brenda Lee, but a big seventies hit for Elvis Presley, in the eighties the song became a major hit in the UK for the Pet Shop Boys and n the USA for Willie Nelson), Rose garden (Lynn Anderson), Harper valley PTA (Jeannie C Riley), Stand by your man (Tammy Wynette), I will survive (Gloria Gaynor - Billie Jo's version became a country hit), Misty blue (originally a country hit for Eddy Arnold but more famous via Dorothy Moore's international pop hit), Bridge over troubled water (Simon and Garfunkel), I love you because (a major UK hit for Jim Reeves), Paper roses (a major UK hit for Marie Osmond) and two Kris Kristofferson songs (For the good times, Help me make it through the night). Billie Jo performs all these songs - and the others - superbly.

Although this is not the definitive Billie Jo Spears hits collection, it provides a good sampling of her music.

Billie Jo Spears had a string of wonderful country classics during the late 70's and early 80's which, sadly, have been forgotten/overlooked by those stations which claim to play classic "oldies". She is a good old-fashioned country singer from the time before country music became commercial/pop-oriented and the melodies/lyrics are both enjoyable and memorable. My personal favorite is "Silver Wings and Golden Rings."

Billy Jo Spears has released many wonderful albums and this one is up with the rest. A truly wonderful country sound.

When asked whether she considered herself the female George Jones, Tammy Wynnette responded that, no, she wasn't because the female George Jones was Billie Jo Spears. And she was right. I can think of no other country singer, with the exception of Dolly in her early days, with the kind of vocal suppleness and edge that Billy Jo displays. Not that Tammy wasn't the most soulful.

This is a good old fashioned c.d. I loved listening to the songs from way back when. She has a good voice.
