Four CDs. Bear Family Records proudly announces the release of the third and final CD box set in our retrospective of Connie Smith's RCA and Columbia recordings. Includes all of the tracks from the second chapter in Connie Smith's epochal recording career as she moved to the Columbia Records label from RCA Victor in 1973-and the first reissue of the majority of them. Dozens of out-of-print and long hard-to-find recordings, including her unforgettable Christmas album 'Joy to the World,' shaped by her own arrangements of sacred holiday songs, and the singular, history-making 'Connie Smith Sings Hank Williams Gospel.' Connie Smith's riveting interpretations of prime era country songs from the pens of Dallas Frazier, Don Gibson, Bill Anderson, Doug Kershaw, Tom T. Hall, Lefty Frizzell, Harlan Howard, Eddie Raven and Jessi Colter. Connie's deep grounding in country gospel music applied to introduction of new songs in the genre by Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, Larry Gatlin and Dottie Rambo, in addition to that full album of eleven Hank Williams gospel songs.
