Appalachian Angel: Her Recordings 1950-1972

Bear Family are known for their completeness, and the quality of their packaging, and what they've done with the work of Anita Carter (who died in 1999) is certainly up to scratch, what with seven CDs and a hardback book to give all the details of her career. A member of the Carter Family, the preeminent clan in country, and sister to June, she performed with her siblings, but managed a smash in 1951, duetting with Hank Snow on "Bluebird Island" and "Down the Trail of Achin' Hearts," both of which went into the Top Five on the country charts. She was one third of 'Nita, Rita & Ruby, but for the most part her career was focused on appearing in different incarnations of the Carter Family group. She could sing, and she had the looks, but as a solo act, no one really seemed to know what to do with her. She managed a few hits in the latter half of the '60s, first with "I'm Gonna Leave You," then "I Got You," which paired her with fledgling outlaw Waylon Jennings. Her last almost-hit "Tulsa County" is also part of the package, along with everything else you could imagine or desire.
