This is NOT Donna Fargo's 1972 album, "Happiest Girl in the Whole USA". Rather, this is a compilation album with several of her more popular songs. If you want a greatest hits collection, there are better ones available. If you want the original album, as I did, you're out of luck, at least for now. Not a single one of her original albums are available. If you want to know what songs were on the original "Happiest" album, that information is available on her web site. The review guidelines do not allow me to post the url, but it should be pretty easy for you to guess.
This has become a fairly common marketing trick. Labels will release compilation albums, but give them the title of an original studio album, leading fans to purchase the wrong product. You have to be very careful to not be deceived by this tactic. Usually I am, but this time I got burned. Hopefully writing this will keep this from happening to some of you. A few of my other reviews are of similar deceptive albums.

As much as I love the music of Donna Fargo, this is *NOT* the original "Happiest Girl in The Whole USA" album that was originally released in 1972 on DOT records. It's a good thing the track listing was posted here, otherwise I might have been fooled into thinking I was purchasing the original version. Fortunately, I still have my old vinyl copy, though after 30+ years, it's getting pretty tired. I don't understand this concept of "remaking" old albums and re-issuing them on CD. I feel this is deliberate deception on the part of the label to mislead the public. This is becoming quite a routine for some reason. Thankfully, those of us who remember our old 8-tracks and LP records aren't easily fooled. The ORIGINAL track listing for "Happiest Girl in The Whole USA" is as follows:
1. The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA
2. Manhattan Kansas
3. The Awareness of Nothing
4. Funny Face
5. A Little Somethin'(To Hang On To)
6. Daddy Dumplin
7. How Close You Came To Being Gone
8. Society's Got Us
9. It Would Have Been Just Perfect
10 Johnny B Goode.
That's the way I remember it folks, and that's the way it should have been reissued. I'm sorry, but either release the album in its entirety without butchering it up or omitting songs, or just don't even bother. I'm sick and tired of wasting time and money on deceptive and sly business practices on the part of the music industry, and until such time as it cleans up its act, I'll continue to treasure my old records and tapes.

Ain't it amazing how many people criticize something they don't buy because they don't like it because it's not what they want rather than what is being sold. No, this is not the original album - it is indeed a compilation of her best or a hits package. I see something I don't like on Amazon but I don't comment on them unless it's really crooked. The tracks that are listed clearly give you an option to buy or not buy based on that information. Check out Lynn Anderson and how many Cd's have Rose Garden in the title but I've yet to see the original Rose Garden vinyl out for sale on a solitary stand alone Cd - faithful to the original.

That being said this is a top notch group of Donna Fargo songs and I love it. I'm grateful they even made a Cd with these tracks on it and I enjoyed it greatly and you will, too. One last note: I knew years ago a lot of the old 33 albums would never be put out on Cd and they haven't or they cost an arm and a leg (see Olivia Newton John, for example.) I have every Lynn Anderson 33 vinyl made and I bought a recorder so I can record these (and others) to cd's. With todays technology you can scan the covers and reduce them. Print and viola - you have jewel case inserts. Maybe not as good as them putting out all the classic country (and other stuff) you want on Cd nor the quality but it's a heck of a lot better than nothing.

HI, I'VE BEEN LOOKING ALL OVER FOR THIS CD! THEN I NOTICE THAT YOU DON'T HAVE IT NEW. THATS OK THOUGH, I'LL KEEP AN EYE OPEN FOR WHEN IT IS AVAILABLE. THE WHOLE CD IS GREAT, I ESPECIALLY FAVOR "DADDY DUMPLIN" & "SUPERMAN"! IF YOU ENJOY THE OLDER '70S' COUNTRY, THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS CD!

CAN HARDLY WAIT TO PURCHASE,
COLLEEN STRAIT

Since CD's weren't commercially available in 1972 except as a Certificate of Deposit, and Amazon generally posts the release date and track listing of the album for sale, I'd have to say, "tough luck" to the reviewers who didn't review their purchase prior to ordering. Unfortunately it's a 'read the fine print' world we live in now, and no I'm not an attorney ;) Since I was only just begun (born) in '72, I don't have old memories of her work. I'm generally not even a fan of country music. If anyone out there has ever been to a drag show, "The Happiest Girl..." has just enough camp and spirit, as well as the Dolly Parton-esque mountain music thing for one of those crazy queens to really make a statement. And nobody I have ever seen could pull that off as well as Lucinda Holiday, hamburgers and all!!! Who would have ever known I'd discover this little slice of history and widely unknown gem 30 years later? Buy this album and, above all, be sure to make it a Skip-a-dee - doo-dah - day.
