A beautiful package loaded with all the tunes from the first handful of Jeannie C Riley albums for Plantation
– including the Harper Valley PTA, Yearbooks And Yesterdays, Things Go Better With Love, Country Girl and The Generation Gap LPs – 58 tracks on 2CDs! Jeannie's crossed over into the bigtime immediately, on the strength the massive "Harper Valley PTA" single, and she recorded dozens of tracks just as righteously strong! Much like Merle Haggard didn't set out to be country's conservative voice, Jeannie didn't set out to be one of country pop's first feminists – but there's no way to deny how hugely impactful she was on that front, and Harper Valley sounds true to this day. Cultural weight aside, it's simply a great batch of top notch country story songs, from one of the greatest voices of her time. Includes "Harper Valley PTA", "No Brass Band", "Shed Me No Tears", "Yesterday All Day Long Today", "Yearbooks And Yesterdays", "My Scrapbook", "The Girl Most Likely", "I'm Only An Woman", "A Real Woman", "Our Minnie", "The Back Side Of Dallas", "Country Girl", "I Almost Called Your Name", "Wherever You Are", "The Generation Gap", "My May", "Duty, Not Desire", "Darkness Falls", "To The Other Woman" and many more. Nice deluxe package, too, with a solid booklet of notes.
