INTRODUCTION:

Connie Francis was born Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero on December 12, 1938 in Newark, New Jersey. She was pop music’s #1 female vocalist from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s. She recorded almost exclusively to MGM label, and has an amazing 67 charted singles on Billboard Hot 100, with three Number 1 hits: “Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool”, “My Heart Has A Mind Of Its Own” and “Don’t Break The Heart That Loves You”. Her charted career was from 1955 to 1973.

CONTENT:

Connie Francis was probably the first pop star of the Rock Era to venture into C&W music. However, she was not the first female pop singer to ‘go country’: Patti Page, Rosemary Clooney and Connie’s MGM stable mate Joni James, who had country hits like Tennessee Waltz, Half As Much and Your Cheatin’ Heart respectively.

This set was released by Spectrum, a budget label from UK, and contains 18 C&W songs, sung in Connie’s own style.

Format: Audio CD
"Connie's Country" is another CD with Connie's hits compiled by Spectrum Music (UK). Actually, it is not a re-edition of any of her regular MGM recordings but a set of her 18 country-style pop songs recorded throughout 1959-1968. Apart from the fact that she recorded also country songs in duets with Hank Williams, Jr. and Marvin Rainwater, we don't even get here the complete collection of her solo country recordings. Her two best country pop singles: "My heart has a mind of its own" and "Jealous heart" remain out of this disc, as well as "Everybody's somebody's fool", "Drownin' my sorrows" , "He thinks I still care", "I wish I had a wooden heart" , "The wayward wind" and other. It is strange that some of these songs are spread among the other compilations by Spectrum Music (e.g. "Who's Sorry Now" and "The World of Connie Francis"). What was the problem to collect them in one place?
Connie proves here that she is the best in any kind of pop music, so five stars for her! But only three stars for Spectrum Music for its incomplete work: 47-minute disc is pretty too short and does not contain the best of Connie's Country. However, the disc's title fits its contents, this is unfortunately a small Country.

Connie's Country - Great country Aug. 22 2005
By Scott J. Sedei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have always been a Connie Francis fan but was surprised to see "Connie's Country" on Amazon, I never knew she had a country album out. The CD is great, Connie's incredible voice and style give these country classics new life. Again, she crossed a music boundry/style and has improved on it. I actually like many of these re-recordings better than the originals. If you're a Connie Francis fan, this CD is a real treat.

VERSATILE CONNIE May 21 2006
By Terry D. Robertson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This proves Connie can sing anything. This CD covers her country releases but unfortunately is minus some of her finer moments during her foray into C&W such as "I'd Be A Legend In My Time and They'll Be No Teardrops Tonight". But this UK import is very good indeed and should be in everyone's collection. The sound quality is excellent and the care that was put into this project is evident. A welcome addition to the Connie Francis library.

Connie And Country Go Back To The Beginning May 17 2008
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The connection Connie had to Country goes right back to the start of her career. Indeed, her first hit single - minor though it was - involved a duet with C&W star Marvin Rainwater on The Majesty Of Love which made it to # 93 on the Billboard Pop Top 100 in December 1957 b/w You, My Darlin', You. And although that did not register on the Country charts, she did have Everybody's Somebody's Fool go to # 24 Country in the summer of 1960 (as well as # 1 Hot 100 and # 2 R&B) b/w Jealous Of You (# 19 Hot 100), and in early 1969 had The Wedding Cake reach # 33 Country as well as # 91 Hot 100, b/w Over Hill Underground. And her last hit single ever, which came in March 1983, was a Country one, There's Still A Few Good Love Songs Left In Me, # 84 Country b/w Let's Make It Love Tonight.

However, her 8th LP, which came out in November 1959, was titled Country & Western Golden Hits, containing: Singing The Blues; Tennessee Waltz; Young Love; Your Cheatin' Heart; Bye Bye Love; (There'll Be) Peace In The Valley (For Me); My Special Angel; Hearts Of Stone; Half As Much; Cold Cold Heart; Let Me Go, Lover; and Anytime. Three years later, in August 1962, MGM released Country Music Connie Style with these selections: I Really Don't Want To Know; Oh, Lonesome Me; I Fall To Pieces; Someday (You'll Want Me To Want You); I Walk The Line; He Thinks I Still Care; She'll Have To Go; I'm Movin' On; I Don't Hurt Anymore; I'm A Fool To Care; I Can't Stop Loving You; and Heartaches By The Number.

In November 1964 Connie Francis & Hank Williams, Jr. Sing Great Country Favorites hit the market with: Send Me The Pillow That You Dream On; Wolverton Mountain; Please Help Me I'm Falling (In Love With You); Singin' The Blues; Walk On By; If You've Got The Money, I've Got The Time; Mule Skinner Blues; Making Believe; Blue Blue Day; No Letter Today; Bye Bye Love; and Wabash Cannonball. Her last Country-themed album, My Heart Cries For You, then came out in July 1967 with: Lonely Again; Don't Touch Me; Four Walls; There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight; The Wayward Wind; How's The World Treating You?; My Heart Cries For You; I'll Be A Legend In My Time; I Wish I Had A Wooden Heart; Room Full Of Roses; and Anytime.

Several songs were, as you will notice, repeated in some of the albums, and this one from Polygram UK is more or less an amalgam of the contents of those four LPs with excellent sound reproduction. Well worth the price.

Wonderful Discovery April 14 2009
By Charles A. Horowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What a wonderful discovery, pairing the incomparable Connie Francis with simple but emotionally potent early country lyrics. An easy five stars. The arrangements on this collection range from brilliant to tacky. Some tracks will test your tolerance of "kitsch," although never rising to the level of Connie Stevens' over-the-top Hank Williams album. Superb sound quality. Kudos to the sound engineer. At Amazon Marketplace prices, it's a crime not to purchase and own this disc. My wife and I argued for 15 minutes about whose "I Fall to Pieces" is better, Connie's or Patsy's. Of course I was just being difficult (Patsy *owns* that song), but for it to be even a close call is about the highest compliment I can think of for such a decidedly un-country performer as Connie Francis.

The magic that was and will always be Connie Francis . . . Dec 26 2008
By Dudley Ristow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although Celine Dion nearly does with a couple of her numbers there is no female singer who can "cry" a tune like Connie Francis ! Her voice never ever fails to brings home to us as listeners' a true love, lost, unrequited or just never ever found. One indeed wonders to what heights this amazing performer could have taken her career if her vicious rape in a hotel room never happened. To the diva of my youth and the diva of my life time, long may your voice be heard on radios' gaga-gaga . . .
