Format: Audio CD
This collection includes four complete Nanci Griffith albums: Lone Star State of Mind, Little Love Affairs, Storms, and Late Night Grande Hotel, plus a couple of previously unreleased tracks. They're all very good albums, so this collection is a real bargain. It's not meant as a "best of" collection, but rather four of her albums, in their entirety. I like that, because best-of collections inevitably leave out some really good tracks. I'm a big fan of Nanci Griffith, with her bell-like little-girl voice and tuneful songs. Almost all of these songs are classics in their own right, and anyone who likes Nanci will appreciate them. Newcomers will be won over. Her music is exceptional: melodic, beautifully performed and with obvious emotional involvement. If you already have one or more of the albums, you'll have to weigh the price of getting the rest of them included here as a batch vs. buying them individually. On the other hand, there are a couple of nice bonus tracks not on the albums. If you're just starting a collection of Nanci's music this is a fabulous deal, a wealth of great music for a great price.

There's something a bit frustrating about the MCA portion of Nanci Griffith's career. She has a couple of five-star albums to her credit dating to before and after the period covered here, but none from during the MCA era. All four of the albums collected here have some wonderful songs and a few forgettable ones. The good news, though, is that none of the songs are actually bad. Besides, with four albums for less than the price of two, a few weak links are perfectly acceptable.

If any of those four is missing from your collection (and especially if you only have a greatest-hits CD), this is worth picking up. All four of the MCA albums featured at least one great song that hasn't turned up on any of her live albums or compilations. "Lone Star State of Mind," "Never Mind," "Love Wore A Halo," "San Diego Serenade," and "You Made This Love A Teardrop" have all aged just as well as concert staples like "Gulf Coast Highway" or "I Wish It Would Rain" (which are, of course, here as well).

For the completists, there are three previously unreleased (or nearly-unreleased) songs here. Of these, the bouncy "Tumble and Fall" is definitely a keeper, and "Stand Your Ground" is also pretty good. The third, a cover of "Wooden Heart," is just about identical to every other version of that song I've ever heard, so if you liked those, you'll like her version too.

With the obvious exception of her 1988 live disc (One Fair Summer Evening), this compilation collects Nanci Griffith's entire MCA Records output onto two packed discs. If you're a fan, you'll love it; if not, you probably won't be interested anyway. For the casual fan and the curious, there's always The MCA Years - A Retrospective (1993), or From A Distance: The Very Best of (2002), a pair of well-selected single- disc collections covering the same (1986-1993) era, only to lesser effect.

This is one of the best compilations of her music I've heard - and at a good price to boot! It's a great sampling for new fans and old ones alike - an absolute delight to my ears!

I've been a Nanci Griffith fan for many years and this is the finest compilation of her music that I've heard. Every song on the two cd set is great!! I purchased her Flyer cd as well and, again, have met with complete satisfaction. The MCA Studio Recordings are a great investment to any serious music fan's collection.

If you've never bought any of Nanci Griffith's music, you're missing one of music's top female vocalists. Her stories hit home & become a part of you. The stories could've been from your life. This cd will quickly contain several favorites for you. Ford Econoline is one of mine. Don't miss out on a cd with MANY great songs!

For any new Nanci Griffith fan, this is a great way to get started collecting her music. Also, for any old Nanci Griffith fan, this is a great addition to your collection. It's packed with 46 songs on two CDs and they're all great. Nanci brings to mind artists such as Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn and John Prine. Great CD, Highly recommended.
