Regarded by many pundits as "the forgotten woman of Rockabilly", Charline Arthur was very much ahead of her time. A discovery of the formidable Colonel Tom Parker, a couple of years before he managed Elvis, she was by all contemporaneous accounts a controversial, memorable and hugely popular live performer. She famously refused to play by the rules and often appeared onstage wearing pants, rather than the chintzy dresses worn by other female Country singers, and she sang sassy, suggestive songs (she was censored onstage at the Grand Ole Opry). This compilation reissues the sixteen singles she cut between, 1950-1956 across five different record labels, virtually her entire recorded legacy. It includes her regional hits 'Heartbreak Ahead', 'He Fiddled While I Burned', 'Waltzing' and '(I'm In Love With) Someone's Used To Be' alongside collectors' items like 'Soft Hearted Gal', 'Honey Bun' and 'Burn That Candle'.
