Nanci Griffith got an early start on her path to performing and songwriting.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This round-up of Nanci Griffith's studio recordings for MCA neatly captures most of her late-80s and early-90s purple patch, in which songwriting, voice and backing band(s) seem to converge to produce some magical music. Whether or not you subscribe to the "folkabilly" or "newgrass" tags commonly bandied about with Ms G, there's no denying the power that lies in her often simple, always highly melodic songs. She's country without the schmaltz, folk without the fingers-in-the-ear, strong songs from the heart sung with a little of the rough edges still there - even on these major label productions.

1987's "Lone Star State of Mind" was her MCA debut and added some production chunkiness to the Griffith sound, especially on the title track, but she still found time to let the instruments and songs speak for themselves on "Trouble In The Fields" and a remake of her 1978 song "There's A Light Beyond These Woods...". The following year saw "Little Love Affairs", in which the songs were given slightly more space to breathe. On "Gulf Coast Highway" she produces something quietly magical, whilst on "Love Wore A Halo" the grit in her voice as she kicks up the Texas dust is marvellous - it sounds like they had a ball at the recording session for that!

The release of "Storms" in 1989 saw a shift in style, with change in producer to Glyn Johns. Some felt Johns' approach unsympathetic to Nanci's songwriting, but the record has aged fairly gracefully on the whole. Maybe the gated snare on the title track is a little bit too 'eighties' for 21st-century ears; elsewhere it's best to forget the vintage of the synth patches and soak up the wonderful songs. The set includes two songs that she's still singing live at gigs, "It's A Hard Life..." and "Listen To The Radio".

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Cloudberry on 4 Feb. 2011
Format: Audio CD
Four albums plus three bonus tracks, all on a two CD compilation - 157½ minutes of Nanci brilliance.

She has always been a massive talent and this compilation proves just how great she was and probably still is. The four albums have some of the best music Nanci has written - in fact, some of the best Americana music to come out of the States. I could name all of the tracks on the album as favourites, but just to give you a few absolute treasures, "You Make This Love A Teardrop" is a stunner, as are "Sweet Dreams Will Come", "There's A Light Beyond These Woods", "I Knew Love", "Storms" and I Don't Want To Talk About Love" and one of the bonus tracks "Wooden Heart" - yes, the Elvis song, which I think should have been Nanci's song. It is simply the best version I have heard of the song. Honestly,

Some might think this is just a bit of cashing in by MCA, but the sleeve has some great notes and is very nicely put together, so thank you, MCA, for putting this compilation together. Yes, pure genius is what Nanci is. She's well worth the money.

I had bought the original cd's when they first came out so I thought it would be nice to have them all on one remastered disc. And im glad i made the effort.This,for me,is Nanci at her best.stand outs are LONE STAR STATE OF MIND,FROM A DISTANCE,TROUBLE IN THE FIELDS,I KNEW LOVE,GULF COAST HIGHWAY,OUTBOUND PLANE,SWEET DREAMS WILL COME and thats just cd1.Disc 2 covers her 3rd and 4th STUDIO albums on MCA there are also a handful of bonus tracks over the whole album. Buy this set,well worth the money.

i had the original cd's of Nanci Griffith but with moving home lost them so i was happy to download the early MCA Recordings.Not only is she a great song writer but there are too many stand out tracks to mention them all.If you like country music with a folk tinge i would suggest you invest in one of the better American singer songwriters.

It is so easy to listen to Nancy Griffiths singing for any reason; just a lovely experience altogether. I have never bought a used cd before but it does seem fine so far. It was sent very promptly and I hope to use the same company again.

I could listen to Nanci all day and night. She puts such meaning into her words and music. Why do we need a specific amount of words for this review as it can be summed up as 'Wonderful!'
