This collection is an excellent mixture of Brenda Lee's big pop hits and the more overtly country-oriented material that the Georgia native began recording in the late 1960s. The 40-track ANTHOLOGY VOLUMES 1 & 2 isn't complete--Lee had over 50 charting pop and country hits from 1960's "Sweet Nothin's" into the 1980s--but the two-disc set is well compiled and hits all of her high points. Though best known for "I'm Sorry" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," Lee was a varied, sensitive singer, able to handle sorrowful ballads and sassy rockers with equal aplomb, approaching her material with a verve that belied her surprisingly young age. (Lee was only 11 when she recorded her first single.) The casual fan probably won't need anything beyond this collection, but those intrigued by these early blends of country twang and rock & roll will find plenty more where this came from.

Rating 4.0 Missing Songs Music Lover: from St. Louis, MO US -- August, 9, 2008

For whats on this 2 CD collection, Its well worth the money. BUT, this collection doesn't cover all her hits on Decca. It would take another 2 CD collection to cover the 24 songs that are still missing on this collection. If the label would ever print a Volume 3 & 4, I would be one of the first to buy it.

Rating 4.0 memories Music Lover: from Mason, OH US -- February, 16, 2008

I have tis on tape & it brought back a lot of childhood memories. I never cosidered her a "country" artist, but looking back I can see why that classification has been given. I believe it's an excellent album.
