Connie Smith is one of the touchstone figures in Country Music.
Her complete COLUMBIA recordings from 1973 to 1976.
9 albums on 4 CDs – from gospel and Christmas songs to classic country and pop.
The accompanying 96-page book includes dozens of previously unpublished photos, a detailed discography, session-by-session discussion of the making of the records, and an overview of Connie Smith’s life as she balanced session scheduling and Grand Ole Opry and touring performances while being, by this time, an actively involved, dedicated mother of five.
Introduction by Connie’s husband and musical collaborator Marty Stuart, who has now joined her as an inducted member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Includes all of the tracks from the second chapter in Connie Smith’s epochal recording career, as she moved to the Columbia Records label from RCA Victor in 1973—and the first reissue of the majority of them.
Classic, infectious 1970s honky tonk singles such as “Ain’t Love a Good Thing,” her own co-write “You’ve Got Me Right Where You Want Me” and her hit takes on the Everly Brothers’ “(Till) I Kissed You” and “So Sad.”
Dozens of out-of-print and long hard-to-find recordings, including her, unforgettable Christmas album “Joy to the World,” shaped by her own arrangements of sacred holiday songs, and the singular, history-making “Connie Smith Sings Hank Williams Gospel.”
Connie Smith’s riveting interpretations of prime era country songs from the pens of Dallas Frazier, Don Gibson, Bill Anderson, Doug Kershaw, Tom T. Hall, Lefty Frizzell, Harlan Howard, Eddie Raven and Jessi Colter.
Connie’s deep grounding in country gospel music applied to introduction of new songs in the genre by Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, Larry Gatlin and Dottie Rambo, in addition to that full album of eleven Hank Williams gospel songs.
New exploration of the steel guitar foregrounding “Connie Smith sound” as she performs virtual vocal-guitar duets with steel heroes Weldon Myrick, Lloyd Green, John Hughey, Jimmy Day, Buddy Emmons and Hal Rugg.
Detailed stories of Connie Smith’s close work with Columbia producers Ray Baker and George Richey, as they arrived at the song choices and up-to-date, yet traditionalist sounds that brought her through the pop-centric John Denver-Olivia Newton John county era with her core classic country attack intact. Based on extensive new interviews with Connie herself and with producer Baker by the book’s author Barry Mazor.
‘Connie Smith- The Latest Shade of Blue,” is the third in Bear Family’s chronicle of one of country music’s most masterful vocalists in the years that cemented her reputation and renown, following on the two sets covering her previous years at RCA Victor, “Born to Sing” (1964-1967) and “Just For What I Am” (1968-1972).

This is the third Bear Family Records® collection chronicling the recordings of Connie Smith, one of country music's most profound singers. The two previous sets covered Connie's RCA VICTOR catalog, beginning with her landmark, breakout single from 1964, continuing
on through the last song she recorded for the label in 1972.

The COLUMBIA Recordings 1973-1976 show a woman who has weathered the storms in her life, took hold of her faith, all while maturing into the full depth and range of her emotions. Nine full albums are collected here – including 'Connie Smith Sings Hank Williams Gospel,' 'The Songs We Fell In Love To,' and her recording of festive favourites, 'Joy To The World.' As before, some of Country Music's most-acclaimed songwriters are covered throughout – from Dallas Frazier, Harlan Howard and Don Gibson to Kris Kristofferson, Tom T. Hall and Dolly Parton.

The accompanying LP-sized hardcover book features Barry Mazor's in-depth liner notes and a detailed look at the gestation of the COLUMBIA recording sessions, plus a detailed discography by Richard Weize, and a treasure trove of pictures, album covers, labels and ephemera, many previously unseen and only recently discovered in Connie Smith's archive. When asked to describe country music, Connie Smith's standard answer is "It's the cry of the heart." Her cry of the heart is her singing, and it's a powerful thing to behold.
