  • $15.00


A nice representative collection of 26 songs by Wells, who was the dominant female singer in country music in the 1950s. The album starts with 5 of the 8 recordings that she made for RCA Victor—backed by Johnnie & Jack these are some of her best work (DON’T WAIT THE LAST MINUTE TO PRAY, LOVE OR HATE, I’LL BE ALL SMILES TONIGHT). The rest of the disc samples her extensive career on the Decca label, with such songs as THINGS THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN, YOU’RE NOT EASY TO FORGET, CHEATIN’S A SIN, THERE’S POISON IN YOUR HEART, HONKY TONK WALTZ and a nice version of SEARCHING FOR A SOLDIER’S GRAVE. Typical country backup of the times features fiddle & steel guitar.
