Davis' run of country hits covered a remarkable 20-year span, from the Davis Sisters' "I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know" to the aptly titled early '70s track "I Can't Believe That it's Over." The single-disc THE ESSENTIAL SKEETER DAVIS does a solid job of encapsulating a career diverse and successful enough to merit a more comprehensive retrospective.
ESSENTIAL shows the full-circle course of Davis' career, from her early country hits through girl-group pop and back again to country. Her 1962 surprise crossover hit "The End of the World" opened the door to pop radio, and Davis strode through it confidently with the harmony-drenched pop songs that make up the middle of this compilation. When the British invasion forever altered American pop radio, Davis returned to her country roots, scoring big with "What Does it Take (to Keep a Man Like You Satisfied)" and "Fuel to the Flame." Throughout, Davis' clear, innocent vocals remain a constant, as does the theme of heartbreak. Like the Everly Brothers, Davis exploits harmony to communicate the sweet sadness of longing and loss. The result is a splendid collection of country pop.
