Format: Audio CD
Kitty Wells, now in her 90s, must be wryly amused by the torrent of releases of her early albums on Decca. The out-of copyright specialists are working their way through her back catalogue with the result that the Queen of Country Music is becoming as well known today as she was back in the 1950s and 1960s.
Kitty Wells spent a lifetime performing in the Country music business, at least 6 decades, and she was a model performer. Like her husband, Johnnie Wright (of Johnnie and Jack), she was a fixture of the Opry, and in her own right, was one of the first female artists to break through the glass ceiling into the Country Hit Parade.
Here, Jasmine Records have packaged 4 of her early Decca albums and released a 2 CD package. The 48 tracks comprise the albums, Country Hit Parade (1956), Dust On The Bible (1959), Seasons Of My Heart (1960), and Kittys Choice (1960). Interestingly, Jasmine have chosen not to release her first four albums on Decca in chronological order, but have skipped over Winner Of Your Heart (1956) and After Dark (1959). "Winner" is a wonderful album, but is available elsewhere on a twofer with Country Hit Parade.
If you don't possess the Bear Family 4 CD box, then you should add this Jasmine to your collection. The sound is adequate, Decca engineering was pretty good in those days, and the music is consistently good. Far, far better than a collection of Greatest Hits, these albums allow you to hear the development of her music, in particular how Kitty Wells stayed the right side of the line of Nashville morality, whilst dealing with themes that were adult and relevant.
An important release undoubtedly, but also one I expect you will play many times. That is the true test of great Country music.

She influenced so many Country singers, her modesty puts a lot of present
day singers to shame, truly a one off.

The Queen Of Country Music!! 18 July 2012
By PradaBoy69 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The lights of the Grand Ole Opry became a little dimmer with the passing of Country Music's Queen, Kitty Wells at the age of 92 on July 16, 2012. This CD collection contains 4 original albums on 2 CDs. Each and every song is a true gem...Country music at its very finest! This is the woman who led the way for all the female Country artists of today. She will be greatly missed but her many wonderful songs like the ones on this superb CD will live on forever!

Amazing albums from the Queen of Country Music !!! 14 Jan. 2013
By Eric Rion - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This CD had four recorded albums that cover a period of Kitty Wells when she was at the height of country music stardom. The price on this album is a bargain considering that you also get several of her gospel tracks. Highly recommended !!!

Great cd
What a GREAT Collection of Kitty Wells songs! 22 Jun. 2014
By K.K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Kitty is one of the ALL TIME GREAT Country singer's. I know Patsy Cline to Carrie Underwood, there are a lot of good singer's, but I like the Country accent and sometimes nasal sound that singer's like Kitty and Loretta and NOW Miranda Lambert have. Patsy and Carrie BOTH have great voices, but I wouldn't consider either to sing COUNTRY. It would be like having Celine Dion sing," It wasn't God who made Honky Tonk Angels" and then call her Country because of it. When Kitty Wells sings, there is NO doubt she's Country and that's my opinion. With this CD you will own practically EVERY GREAT song she sang. What a GREAT Collection of Kitty Wells songs!

Kitty Wells has always been one of my best female singers and she was so remarkable during her rise to country. This collection is by the most excellent during her career. I love it and will most likely acquire even more since she has so many good albums
