the best of the best songs of Rosanne Cash

I love this Album. I also have the VHS Video of these songs. And I think I have worn out both. I have loved her music since I was a kid. Now that I am 39 I still love her style and smooth voice. A great Album for a great romantic night, or just for a relaxing moment in time.

Johnny should be proud

Not since Nancy Sinatra has a daughter so successfully emerged from the shadow of her famous father, but although Rosanne Cash covers "Tennessee Flat Top Box", her brand of country-pop-rock is distinct from Johnny Cash's. Linda Ronstadt is the most common comparison, and it's true Rosanne made shrewd use of collaborators (especially Rodney Crowell) and songwriters, just like Linda did. But Rosanne concentrated more on the pop-rock fringe of 80s country radio, while Linda mined diverse sources besides the rock-country border of pop radio. Rosanne Cash made solid albums deserving of as much attention as the songs they contributed to this compilation, yet "Hits 1979-1989" organizes just the right set of songs to summarize a career period like the best collections of Patsy Cline, Tanya Tucker, or Dolly Parton. These songs sound like they belong together, and they provide a representative array of Rosanne Cash at her commercial peak, which is what a greatest hits album is supposed to do.
