Country Cool

This is the best of the best. From her first hits through her reign as the queen of MCA. Barbara did it all: ballads, dance, pop, and full out traditional country.

How about Itunes trying to get full albums, she had some great album cuts on albums like "Get To The Heart", "Just For The Record", and "In Black And White".
