"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.
