5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Suzy's music, 19 April 2005

This review is from: 20 Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Suzy never achieved the level of commercial success that her talent deserved but she nevertheless built a significant fan base in America, Britain and elsewhere. Suzy's voice has echoes of Emmylou Harris (no bad thing, that) and was certainly one of the best country singers of her generation - or any generation.
Drawing on Suzy's nineties recordings for Capitol, this contains most of the songs that you would expect to find. It is a pity that they didn't license her country hit duet with Lee Greenwood (Hopelessly yours) but if you want it, you can find it on a Lee Greenwood compilation.
This compilation shows that Suzy could record oldies and contemporary material with equal brilliance. The oldies are represented by Someday soon (first popularised by Judy Collins but also recorded by Crystal Gayle among others), In the jailhouse now (the old Jimmie Rodgers classic) and I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart (a million-seller for Patsy Montana in the thirties). My favorite oldie recorded by Suzy (Take it to the limit) isn't here but can be found on Common thread, the Eagles tribute album.
Joy Lynn White (a brilliant but obscure country singer) was first to record Cold day in July. Suzy covered it a few years later but it became better known when covered by the Dixie Chicks. Elsewhere, there are many outstanding songs including Just like the weather, Diamonds and tears, Give me some wheels, Hey Cinderella and Letting go, just to name a few.
If you only ever buy one collection of Suzy's country music, you may as well choose this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOME OF THE BEST OF ..., 3 April 2014

This review is from: 20 Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Released in 2002, this CD covers the early part of the career of one of America`s finest country stars. She, along with others, like Patty Loveless have been largely ignored in the UK.

20 tracks, all of which were successful, hence the title of the CD, portray different sides to her vocal ability. Some are pure country, others have a jazzy feel and one or two almost pop/rock. A very talented singer from the outset. There are a few songs which will be familiar, but I am sure that after a few plays, all will become firm favourites. I bought several records by Suzy, but not one CD. I have started late but I mean to go on.

I promise that you will enjoy this, if you are a fan of people like Crystal Gayle, Linda Ronstadt and others of that era. Treat yourself, you deserve it!

This is a great compilation if you want to have a listing of Suzy's most popular tracks. Suzy has a wonderful voice and is also a good guitar player. Her easy style demonstrates that of a true musician who performs confidently. If you get the chance to see her live then go go go!

A real old-hand (with the greatest respect!) with a lovely soft voice and real country messages. Good works here with Chet Atkins. I do like "in the jail-house now" - a comic book on its own.

Suzy has a certain dignity about the way she delivers Country lyrics and the quality of the songs is often better than some of her contemporaries around the nineties.
