Those who just want the hits should choose one of the single CD compilations instead. This compilation is for those of us who want to explore further. For us, it provides a lot of tracks that we've never heard before, especially the first 20 tracks on the first CD. These were the A and B sides of Connie's first ten singles that failed utterly. As far as I know, none of these were ever re-issued after Connie became famous.

Connie reluctantly agreed to record a song (that she hated) at the behest of her father. She had been told that her recording contract would not be renewed and she already had an alternative career arranged. The song was Who's sorry now? It was released without much fanfare or enthusiasm, but was played by an influential DJ and subsequently started climbing the American charts. The rest, as they say, is history. The record label offered Connie a new contract that eventually lasted 15 years, during which time Connie was very successful. All the British and American successes - and the failures - up to 1962 are included here. As Connie never had any top 10 hits in either country after 1962, all the really important music is here, but Connie had big hits elsewhere in the world after 1962 and I think she may have recorded some great albums later in the sixties too. For the time being, I am content with this comprehensive collection of recordings from her first eight years with MGM.

Most of the material is made up of ballads, but the up-tempo songs (Stupid Cupid, Lipstick on your collar, Plenty good lovin') are there too.

What can you say about Connie Francis that hasn't already been said?.

Suffice to say this is the cream of her recordings from the early days and I am delighted to say the full version of Don't Cry On My Shoulder in included and not the edited version that was released as a single all those years ago.

Connie had an amazing range in those days just listen to her sing God Bless America - there won't be a dry eye in the house.

An absolully stunning set with crystal clear sound and good sleeve notes..

Well all the singles are here as advertised and all but 9 of the 85 tracks are in glorious mono. Tracks 2-23 and 3-5/8/10/16/18/19/24/27 are in some version of stereo. Track 3-11 is a poor quality source. Also one or two of the early tracks on disc one sound as if they might have been lifted from vinyl.

All in all a good set but a shame Jealous Heart didn't come out til 1965 and is therefore missing.

To hear these track's again is wonderful, i forgot how good she was. All her best recording are here, and no scratches. Even if you own only one of her songs i recommend you get this triple cd, you will be glad you did.

Connie Francis and Brenda Lee dominated the late 50s and 60s. One never realizes just how much recording they did,
until you start collecting olf lps on CD. Connie could see Italian, French and who knows what else, and you just knew
her voice. The passion she placed in each song she sang. No wonder Ed Sullivan had her on his show so many times.
As they say, long live......
