Very few artists achieve a multi-million-selling, No.1 record with their first release, but that's effectively what happened to Jeannie C. Riley.  The original bouffant-haired, mini-skirted, knee-length-booted, sassy Country siren, she subsequently lived out the role of the Widow Johnson as depicted in her worldwide smash hit record, Tom T. Hall's controversial 'Harper Valley P.T.A.'.  Indeed, Jeannie broke the mould, becoming famous as much for her appearance and sex appeal as for her singing, as she challenged the female Country singers' traditional, ultra-conservative 'wholesome family image' of long gingham dresses and frilly cuffs (ironically, a look which she herself would have preferred).  Over the years her records have gradually disappeared and have often been hard to find on CD; this unique compilation redresses the balance.

This 2CD set comprises her first five LPs - Harper Valley P.T.A., Yearbooks And Yesterdays, Things Go Better With Love, Country Girl and The Generation Gap - in their entirety, plus a rare, non-album B-side.  Featuring ten U.S. Country chart hits, including the multi-million selling, crossover Pop No.1, 'Harper Valley P.T.A.', this body of work is notoriously difficult to find on CD; many of these sides are making their CD debuts herein.
