Album Review

In the late '50s and early '60s, there were few bigger stars in the world of music than Connie Francis. Able to sing many different styles convincingly, from rock & roll to country, from lush adult ballads to Italian love songs and girl group sounds, Francis had hits galore and created a very impressive body of work. 2005's Gold rounds up 50 of her singles recorded between 1957 and 1969 on two discs and becomes the best Francis collection on the market for anyone who wants to get the full scope of her incredible talent without forking over the money for a box set. Included are such classic tunes as "Who's Sorry Now," "Stupid Cupid," "Don't Break the Heart That Loves You," the Phil Spector-penned "Second Hand Love," and the tough Ellie Greenwich/Jeff Barry girl group rocker "Don't Ever Leave Me." Consider Gold a crash course in Connie Francis. Just one listen will either remind you how much you already dug her or it will make you a staunch supporter.

Customer Reviews

This album is a must have for anyone who considers him or herself a music lover!

Connie Francis is an entertainer who is beloved by older generations, but should not be forgotten by younger generations! She innovated Rock and Roll. She has a golden voice that is both soft and powerful (but within constraints), at the same time. I highly recommend this album to anyone who wishes to lend credibility to their record (CD, MP3) collection.


Your search is over. Don't bother checking all the other Connie Francis CDs out there. If you're looking for her ORIGINAL HITS, buy this CD. It's the best bang for your buck!

A Voice as Sweet as Honey

You can not go wrong in listening to her beautiful voice. From her early pop hits to singing songs in Yiddish, Italian and other languages in her unique style with feeling and soul. My beautiful mother introduced me to her many years ago and I've been a fan ever since.

Connie Francis is the prototype for the female pop singer of today. At the height of her chart popularity in the late '50s and early '60s, Francis was unique as a female recording artist, amassing record sales equal to or surpassing those of many of her male contemporaries. Ultimately, she branched into other styles of music — big band, country, ethnic, and more. She still challenges Madonna as the biggest-selling female recording artist of all time. Like Madonna, Concetta Rosemarie Franconero...
