5.0 out of 5 stars smooth and beautiful singing 17 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
An excellent compilation of Mary Chapin Carpenter's songs and music.

All the songs are good but there is a track here that is one of the best country songs I have heard - " Don't Be Late For Your Life."

It is just such a beautiful song!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Chapin's music 2 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
Mary Chapin has long been a favourite of mine. Her music is very hard pigeon hole into a particular genre - it is a charming mix of country and rock music. Chapin's music is nearly all self penned and her songs range from soft, gentle ballads, to rousing, rock numbers. All are thoughtfully written with a blend of humour, and her lyrics are often heartbreakingly beautiful.

This CD contains a range of songs from most of her album releases, with the exception of her first album, Hometown Girl and her latest album, Between Here and Gone. She has released 10 albums to date, some contain songs which are a commentary on social and political issues, including the wonderful Stones In The Road (about the death of Bobby Kennedy), but many are simply about the experiences of ordinary people - loneliness, grief, joy, passion.

I really do think that most people who like folk/rock/country will take one listen to this album and rush out to buy her others! Chapin has won 3 well-deserved Grammys for her music, as it is simply impossible to put all her best work onto 1 disc. Infact, many great songs have been omitted from this disc, noteably tracks from her latest album, Between Here and Gone, which was written shortly after 9/11 and reflects Chapin's own responses to a changed world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fly Away with Mary 17 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
After watching the movie "Fly away home" I was immediately drawn to the amazing song at its end credits , it was Mary Chaplins 10000 miles. Never having heard of this artist I felt like I struck gold!! The album lived up to every expectation I had put on it! Her music is quite unique and mistifying , the kind of songs you will find yourself humming along to all day without realising it! This is definitely an album to add to your collection! With uplifting songs like "I feel lucky" and more mellow tunes like "Only a dream" , this album is perfect with whatever kind of mood you're in!

5.0 out of 5 stars The 'Saint' 24 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a generality , I have never been disappointed by Singer/Songwriters and this CD by Mary Chapin Carpenter proves to be no exception . There is a stridency to the
up-beat numbers and a gentleness within the ballads providing a contrast which I love.

A must have C.D. for me. All the good songs, only "The Bug" is missing. But she didn't write it so...forgiven.
A great singer and song writer. Pierre.
