In their time, and in our's, they were the best. Bill Monroe (the best bluegrass performer ever), Connie Francis (the best girl pop singer of the '50s and early '60s) and The Ink Spots (the best R&B pop vocal group of a generation) will each be the subject of a new greatest hits compilation in the 20th Century Masters/The Millennium Collection series, to be released October 5, 1999. Each selection has been digitally remastered and each package contains historic photos and informative liner notes.

The Best Of Bill Monroe (MCA Nashville/UMG) edition of 20th Century Masters/The Millennium Collection features 11 of the legend's classic Decca '50s recordings plus a duet with Ricky Skaggs from Monroe's last chart album, 1984's Bill Monroe & Friends. Among them are his most famous songs: "New Mule Skinner Blues," "Blue Moon Of Kentucky," "Uncle Pen," "In The Pines," "I'm Sitting On Top Of The World," "I'm Working On A Building" and "Footprints In The Snow." Also included are Monroe's last two Top 30 country hits: "Scotland" and "Gotta Travel On."

There are precious few individuals who can be pointed to as the true creator of a musical style, but Monroe is one. Synthesizing the Scottish, American folk, jazz and country strains of music floating around the mid-South in the '30's, he became the Father of Bluegrass. Monroe was inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame and the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame, and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. His amazing songbook has been covered by, and influenced, everyone from Elvis Presley to the Grateful Dead to today's country stars such as Vince Gill and Allison Krauss.

The Best Of Connie Francis (Polydor/UMG) edition of 20th Century Masters/The Millennium Collection showcases pop music's #1 female vocalist of the '50s and '60s with a dozen of her biggest hits on one album.

Included are all of her Top 5 chart smashes: her all-time favorite "Who's Sorry Now," "My Happiness," "Lipstick On Your Collar," the anthemic "Where The Boys Are" and the #1 "My Heart Has A Heart Of Its Own." Among her other hits included here are "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" and "Don't Break The Heart That Loves You."

The Best Of The Ink Spots (MCA/Decca/UMG) edition of 20th Century Masters/The Millennium Collection brings together a dozen of the all-time greatest hits of this legendary group. Among them are seven #1 pop and R&B hits: "If I Didn't Care," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," "The Gypsy," "To Each His Own," "I'm Making Believe" (with Ella Fitzgerald), "My Prayer" and "Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall." Also featured is the classic "I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire," familiar to many as the centerpiece of a sensual television ad campaign for a perfume.

Spinning out of the jump and swing scene, The Ink Spots became one of the most successful and popular vocal groups ever, claiming almost 40 pop Top 30 hits and another 20 R&B chart toppers between 1939 and 1951. The group was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame as one of the forefathers of the genre. Nearly every singing group since The Ink Spots owes a musical debt to this silky smooth ensemble. Their songbook produced several generations of covers by artists from The Platters to James Brown to Louis Armstrong. Since all of the original members are long gone, endless pseudo Ink Spots perform at lounges across the country. This collection is a tribute to the best and the original.

Featuring new "best of" albums from the most significant music artists of the past century, previous releases from the 20th Century Masters/The Millennium Collection series have celebrated B.B. King, Louis Armstrong, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bing Crosby, Patti LaBelle, Chuck Berry, The Mamas And The Papas, Muddy Waters, Neil Diamond, The Who, Judy Garland, Etta James, Steppenwolf, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Holly, Bill Haley & His Comets, Burt Bacharach, James Brown, Patsy Cline, Rod Stewart, Dusty Springfield, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, The Platters, Brenda Lee, Dusty Springfield, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Temptations, Louis Jordan and Roger Miller.
