"World of" I can proudly say was my "Connie Francis starter CD" among many collections to follow. At the time this came available there still wasn't as much out of her music on CD yet aside from her "bubble gum" collections ("Stupid Cupid", "Where the Boys are", "Lipstick on Your Collar", etc.) which I wasn't interested in. Here is a select set of standards that might not necessarily have been "Connie songs"; but through her elegance and soulfulness she made each her own. She even elevated some from other pop "bubblegum" tunes to classier pieces like the way she handled "Hold Me, Thrill Me" "Tammy" and "Wayward Wind" - which would sound silly coming from lesser talents, IMO. Lovely, sophisticated arrangements accompanied everything on this collection so it all blends well together. Always a phenomenal talent and definitely in top vocal quality on all songs here!

Now we are in the right groove. This carefully selected disc displays Connie Francis at her best. And her best is better. This well thought out collection is the primer for other cds to look to. Connie's powerful and beatiful voice is evident here and every song is a winner. Forget the bop till you drop hits reissues that constantly come our way and get this fine CD. This is an import of course, her American label Universal apparently is not ready to take a giant step forward and release material of this quality. Maybe it's time to listen to the music? You can't go wrong with this disc. It's a keeper.

Well, If you read my review of her 4-cd set on here at Amazon, and wondered what I was talking about that was "missing", you will get some of those songs HERE!

"I Wish I Had A Wooden Heart"
"Moon River"
"Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me"
"Love IS A Many Splendid Thing"
"My Foolish Heart"
"Wayward Wind"
"True Love"

All these songs, while mostly "B" sides, were some of the greatest songs the "Wonderful Girl" ever sang. What REALLY needs to be released in this country (I am fortunate to have a copy on a limited release import) is Connie's album "The Great American Waltzes"....Now THERE was a GREAT GREAT Album of hers, so very sadly neglected. I do not understand where Universal's heads are. Millions of people from my/our age would flock to buy some of Connies long-lost recordings/albums. I have long hoped for a volume 3 of the Bear Records series, which would most likely have completed her whole career, but it has not come forth, and responses to my inquiries were not too positive.

Anyway! Grab a copy of this album, QUICK, before it is out of print, and at least add these songs to your collection. This album does go a good way towards filling in the gaps on the "Souvenirs" collection.

DO ENJOY! ~operabruin

I was introduced to Ms. Connie Francis' music by my mom who happens to have a vinyl record of her album " Connie Francis Sings Never On Sunday and other movie themes" under MGM label, way back in the early 70's. I was just a little boy then. It was a favorite album in our home during those times, so i get to listen to it most of the time. I'm still in search for a CD copy of that album for my collection, but i was not fortunate enough to find one up to this point in time. When i visited a record bar, i saw this CD and bought it right away since some of the songs in the mgm label where also included in this one. I listened to the whole CD and i must say that this is one of her best. I highly recommend this compilation to all Connie Francis fan.

I purchased this CD recently, based on the familiar song selections, my love for Connie's wonderful voice, and the positive reviews from other music lovers. I know of no other singer who would have done a better job on these songs than Connie Francis. It was delightful to listen to these standards again sung by the beautiful girl with a "cry" in her voice. I remember when she won the favorite female singer award on "American Bandstand" in 1958 (same year Elvis won favorite male singer). You will not be disappointed. Go girl!

I've been collecting music from the late forties to mid sixties for a Legends Of Pop radio show that I do. Of the many artists I have rediscovered for myself Connie Francis is my favorite. I like good music and good singing no matter what the time era or genre of music and Connie Francis has a voice that is excellent to being one of the best I've heard. I never heard her music before and am elated at this talent being in my record collection. I am glad I listened to another reviewer and got this particular CD. You get to hear her vocal talents more fully on these standards than you can get on just the pop hits. I listened to this CD 6 or 7 times the first day it arrived. I appreciate more songs and details in her singing with each listen. I'm gong to order her hits collection, but I would highly reccommend people buy this CD of great standards sung by a truly gifted voice. A big winner!

The World Of Connie Francis has some of her best recorded songs. Particular favorites are, The Look Of Love, Tammy, Hold Me,Thrill Me,Kiss Me, Love Is A Many Splendored Thing, Love Me Tender, Stardust, Three Coins In The Fountain, The Last Waltz, Trains And Boats And Planes, and Strangers In The Night. The other ten songs are just as good, just as Connie Francis is just that good. Connie fans will enjoy this CD greatly.
