At only 16 songs this is a necessarily incomplete best-of collection (Wells has had more than 80 country chart hits), and it neglects the many smash duet records she made with Red Foley, Roy Acuff, and honky-tonk king Webb Pierce. Still, most everything here, recorded in her heyday between 1952 and 1965, is hard country heaven, from the original country woman's song "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky-Tonk Angels" to the divorce song to end all divorce songs "Will Your Lawyer Talk to God." Purists may prefer the '50s stuff (the first eight cuts), where the instrumentation is as sparse as if it was recorded on some back porch in Appalachia. But even when the production gets slicker, Wells' vocals here are the very essence of that high lonesome sound.
