The rock 'n' roll era was a notorious boys club. Few girls got into the picture, and only one challenged the boys on their own terms: Connie Francis. This long-overdue anthology, capped by many rare photos, is a generously full CD that mixes Connie's greatest hits (Who's Sorry Now, Stupid Cupid, My Happiness, Lipstick On Your Collar, Everybody's Somebody's Fool, Where The Boys Are….etc.) with some of Connie Francis most rockin' cuts, some from the fabulously rare 'Rock 'n' Roll Million Sellers' album. Connie Francis versions of songs like Tweedle Dee, It's Only Make Believe and others stand up well against the originals. In addition to the rare photos, the liner notes in the 32-page booklet draw upon extensive original interviews with Connie Francis and those who produced her and wrote songs for her, including Neil Sedaka.
