Format: Audio CD
At the height of her popularity, Connie's hit singles left me somewhat unmoved but as the years progressed, I heard some superb tracks from the plethora of albums she recorded for MGM as well as her German-language platters that seemed to deliver something extra - maybe the harshness of the lingo suited Connie's metalic sounding sob-sister delivery.

Without a doubt, her albums reveal a maturity and versatility not obvious in those hit singles with it being fortuitous many are now reaching CD with this sing-along coupling the latest.
CONNIE FRANCIS SINGS FOLK SONG FAVORITES was the first of a trio of albums the singer recorded with Cliff Parman and his Orchestra and the Jordanaires in Nashville in mid-1961. Whilst it can be argued the dozen selections do not necessarily represent the true folk genre, the mood throughout remains true to the concept with OH SUSANNAH! a cheery Stephen Foster opener and TRUE LOVE TRUE LOVE, RED RIVER VALLEY, SHE'LL BE COMING 'ROUND THE MOUNTAINS, BEAUTIFUL BROWN EYES and CLEMENTINE varying the tempo as well as utilising Connie's emotional outpourings to best advantage. THE BOO WEEVIL SONG, once the territory of Huddie Leadbetter and later Brook Benton, receives a notable performance and I was surprised to discover that AURA LEE's tune - a soulful performance by Connie - was later resurrected to carry the lyrics of LOVE ME TENDER for Elvis! COME ON JERRY (TIMBER!) is represented by a definite FEVER-type arrangement whilst blues number CARELESS receives a more jaunty tempo.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD contains the tracks from the original albums Connie Francis sings folk song favorites (tracks 1 to 12) and Sing along with Connie Francis (tracks 13 to 24) plus four bonus tracks, although the last two of these, especially the last track, don't fit with the rest of the CD. They should have been omitted and saved for other releases, but as it is easy to stop the CD early, they are easily ignored and there's no point in knocking a star off.

I've heard most of these songs before in one form or another, but perhaps the most interesting is Aura Lee, here as originally written. The tune was later used for Love me tender, an early Elvis Presley classic that Connie would have been very familiar with. It might even be that she was inspired to record Aura Lee because of Love me tender, though I have no information on how any of the tracks were chosen.

Another track here, And the band played on, reminds me of the book And the Band Played on: The Enthralling Account of What Happened After the Titanic Sank, which is about the aftermath of the Titanic sinking for one family and its descendants. The same song title has been used elsewhere. However, like Aura Lee, it's many years since I heard the original song and I'm pleased to find it here.

I've certainly heard Tavern in the town; it may even be somewhere else in my music collection, but not being sure about that, I'm glad it's here.

Connie Francis is the best female singer of all time....and this double album proves it.
The folk songs are superb, the sing a long very good (originally released as a Brylcream album!)
