  • Description

    Originally a discovery and protege of Jimmie Skinner, with whom she also recorded prolifically, Connie Hall was one of the biggest female Country stars of the late 50s/early 60s. During this period she registered six significant C&W hits, 'The Bottle Or Me', 'It's Not Wrong', 'The Poison In Your Hand', 'Sleep, Baby, Sleep', 'What A Pleasure' and 'Fool Me Once'.

    All appear on this compilation, which features everything that Connie had released on the Mercury and Decca labels during 1958-62. Also included, as bonus tracks, are a pair of earlier sides she had recorded under her real name, Inez Hellman, before morphing into her better-known "Connie Hall" persona.

    A colossally collectable body of work, much of this material is extremely rare and is near-impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
