Overview

Another wild and wooly volume in its Rocks series, this Connie Francis set is packed to the gills with hits, B-sides and obscurities with 33 cuts in all! From her stellar reading of Conway Twitty's "It's Only Make Believe," the sultry "Fallin'," an alternate version of the country-rockabilly tune "My Heart Has a Mind of Its Own," and the horn-driven "Plenty Good Lovin'." As is usual for Bear Family, the sound is great, there are terrific liner notes, and what's best of all, it's all on a single disc. Connie Rocks offers a view of early rock & roll from one of its most seminal, if not always acknowledged, female vocalists and performers. Just snag it.
