The Best of Connie Smith is a much-too-brief sampling of Connie Smith's biggest hits. Though there are some classic performances here -- "Once A Day," "Then and Only Then," "If I Talk to Him," "Ain't Had No Lovin'," "The Hurtin's All Over," and "I'll Come Runnin'" -- there is no reason why this stops short at eight tracks. Furthermore, there is even less reason why The Best of Connie Smith was the only collection of Smith's material print during the '90s. As this proves, she was an excellent vocalist, one of the best country music had to offer in the '60s.
