Format: Audio CD
The Judds, with their great acoustic songs, were the heroines of traditional country fans in the eighties. This compilation contains the songs that made them famous. Generally, these are the hits I like best, although they had further hits (see volume 2) and they are also of a high quality.

Nine of these ten tracks are taken from their debut mini-LP and their first two full-length albums (Why not me, Rockin' with the rhythm), which I still think are their best original albums. Give a little love, the only song here not to make number one on the country charts although it came close, was never released on an original album in America - it was in the UK, as I explain in my review of their Heartland album. Note that the hits from Heartland appear on the second volume of hits.

Among the songs, my favorites are Why not me, Girls night out and Grandpa (tell me 'bout the good old days), but every song here is a classic.

If you buy this and the second volume of hits, you'll have all the essential Judds recordings with the possible exception of Don't be cruel.

The first song I remember by the Judds was Mama He's Crazy. And I never liked that song. And I really thought I would never like anything by The Judds. Then when they came out with Why Not Me I actually heard that song for the first time and didn't know who sang it. Then when I found it was The Judds I was really surprised. And I really liked it. Then I liked just about everything else that they did.
Both those songs are on here And another one of my favorite songs that they did was Give A Little Love which was new at the time and this was the only cd it was on. They could do any kind of music. They did a killer love song Love Is Alive. And one of the all time great story songs. Grandpa. Uptempo stuff like Girls Night Out and Have Mercy and ballads like Change Of Heart. This is just a very good cd.

I've always liked The Judd's music and this is a basic CD of their most famous songs durig their heyday. It only has 10 songs on it, so it is not the most extensive collection of their music, but is a good CD for the car when I want to hear just some of their music and for what little I paid was worth it. Plus, I got to download their songs from the album onto my MP3 player and smartphone as well, which was included in the price.

The only compliant I have is that for a new CD, which was still in the wrapping, the case was cracked, but I the CD was in good condition so I can live with this.

The Judds One of the best female duos ever. I'm not huge

fan of country music, but the Judds are one of VERY few

country acts that I listen to now. They like the other

few country acts I follow are more of a guilty pleasure.

However, that doesn't mean they don't deserve credit. Each

one is really good singers, It's ashame the cancer came up

or they could have went further.

Anyway, this is a great album and most of the hits Why Not

Me, Rockin With The Rythm of The Rain, Mama He's Crazy and

my favorite "Grandpa (Tell Me about the good ole days) the

best tune the dead IMO..

One song I feel was left out such as Turn It Loose. Other

than that, it's worth picking up.

This is a compilation of their early hits, when the voices and songs mattered. You only need to hear: "Why Not Me" to understand how they came to be a hit. The whining guitar, Wynonna's throbbing voice, all of it works. Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days, is a lovely ballad that might not work with today's audience; fortunately it did in the late '80's before so much cynicism worked its way in.

An excellent addition to an eclectic music library.

As anyone who knows me will know the first ever music I heard was by Kenny Rogers, then came The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard and next was The Judds.

I probably listen to them less than the rest of the artists I mentioned, but that's probably due to not enough free time and the fact I have never bought their albums on CD (the Vinyl and Tape editions are still in my house).

Anyway I can't really say why i haven't given much thought as to buying a CD of theirs until now, but it's something I'm going to have to do, with songs as good as this, I want to be able to listen to them a bit more.

The opening track on this compilation of their music is "Why not me?", i've always been undecided on this song, not because I don't like it, but at times I love it and at times I skip it to get on to the next cut (not as easy on tape and vinyl as it is on CD).

"Mama he's crazy" is one of my favourite cuts on the album, it's about a young girl talking to her mother about the love of her life and the play on words in this song are typical of many country songs ("He's heaven sent And must be out of my mind, Mama he's crazy, Crazy over me"). This was the song that really made them famous too, becoming their first #1 hit in August of 1984.

Another favourite of mine on this collection of "Grandpa Tell me 'bout the good ol' days", again this is a sentimental song, typical of the Country genre ("Did lovers really fall in love to stay? And stand beside each other come what may?

Was a promise really something people kept, Not just something they would say and then forget? Did families really bow their heads to pray? Did daddies really never go away?

Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days").
