Lynn Anderson's rich recording catalog has been neglected for most of the digital era. Thankfully, Collectors Choice Music has put together this 24-track Greatest Hits, the first cd to combine hits from her '60s Chart Records and '70s Columbia Records tenures.

Signing with Chart Records in 1966, Anderson was an immediate success thanks in large part to mom Liz's songwriting. These songs - like "If I Kiss You" and "Promises, Promises" - featured clever wordplay that played off her youthful exuberance. When Anderson left Chart, they continued to mine her old albums for singles, astutely selecting remakes of hits like "I've Been Everywhere" and "Rocky Top" which displayed Anderson at her most irresistibly chipper.

At Columbia, Joe South's compositions "Rose Garden," "Fool Me," and "How Can I Unlove You" provided Anderson with an early boost. Even more important was the writing and production involvement of husband Glenn Sutton, whom Anderson married just prior to joining Columbia. At Columbia, Sutton matched the brisk pace of Anderson's best Chart recordings with his narcissistic songwriting efforts "You're My Man" and "What A Man, My Man Is." He also encouraged Anderson to stretch stylistically, with the breezily seductive "Sing About Love" and a remake of Johnny Ray's "Cry" that showed she could effectively go from delicate to bombastic within the course of a song.

While a few key recordings are missing, such as her first hit "Ride, Ride, Ride," and the gorgeous Linda Hargrove ballad "I've Never Loved Anyone More," this collection easily rates as the best available Anderson retrospective. The track lineup:

1. Rose Garden

2. You're My Man

3. How Can I Unlove You

4. Keep Me In Mind

5.

Wa-hoo! Although she was a mega-huge star in the early 1970s, when her version of Joe South's "Rose Garden" became one of the greatest countrypolitan hits ever, Lynn Anderson's legacy has been poorly served in recent years. Her last serious best-of sets were on the fly-by-night Renaissance label, and these flew quickly out of print. In particular, her dynamic early recordings for the independent Chart label -- the focus of one of the two Renaissance discs -- has faded from sight, remembered by only a few old fans. This new album is the actually first collection that gathers her Chart material with hits from her long run on Columbia Records, a long-overdue real career retrospective that highlights both her most upbeat and most ornate musical moments. "Rose Garden" is, of course, the apex -- (what an amazing pop song!!) -- but there are plenty of other nice oldies on here, including spunky numbers like "Stay There 'Til I Get There," "Talkin' To The Wall," "Flattery Will Get You Everywhere," "No Another Time" and "That's A No-No." Early on, she recorded a lot of songs written by her mother, Liz Anderson, and these are all lots of fun; later as the whole "countrypolitan" thing got a little too serious and stuffy, her endless stream of erotically-tinged, overly orchestrated love songs got to be kind of repetitive, and her chart hits dwindled. To their credit, the folks at Collector's Choice do a fine job balancing this material, giving a good picture of her commercial career while also packing in enough musical goodies to keep more traditionally-oriented country fans hooked as well. This is a must-have for serious students of country history.

This is a great collection. One of my favorite songs that I remember from when I was young was Ride, Ride, Ride. I was disappointed that this song was not included on this CD. However, these are the originial recordings and a great collection of her songs.

Lynn Anderson is wonderful. my favourite songs here include "If I Kiss You (Will You Go Away)", a song about when her mother used to kiss her when she was sad and she would be happy. she just got hurt again and she asks her problem that if she kisses her own self, will that problem go away. "Promises, Promises" is another song about a man who just promises her stuff and doesn't come through. "No Another Time" is a song about having three chances and then you're out. "Big Girls Don't Cry" is a song about how she tells her mum that she wants to cry because she broke up with her man. "Flattery Will Get You Everywhere" is a song about how Lynn just wants some loving words from her man and that anything will do, weather it is true or not. "I've Been Everywhere" is a song made famous in the 1990's by Johnny Cash. "Rocky Top" is a song that tells how Lynn wishes to go home to the mountains in Tennasee. you then are treated to the hits "Rose garden", "How Can I Unlove You" and "You're My Man". "Cry" is a cover version of a Johnny Ray song. "Listen To a Country Song" is a song about having a jamming session. lovely ballads are also included including "Keep Me in Mind" and "See of Heartbreak", also made famous by Don Gibson in the 1960's and Jimmy Buffett in the 1970's. also included here is "Top of the World", mostly remembered as a Carpenters song. "Sing about Love" is a great sing along song. "Talking to the Wall" is a Bill Anderson song. this is a wonderful CD, but room on the disc is still there for "Ride, Ride, Ride", her first hit and "Gonna Be a Cowgirl Again", her hit in the 1980's. Sadly, this CD has now gone out of print, due to the Collector's Choice label being bought out by Real Gone Music. maybe they'll reissue this title soon. I love it.
