Country Sounds is a ten-track, budget-priced sampler of Rosanne Cash's tenure at Columbia Records, 1979-1987. The number one country hits "Seven Year Ache," "My Baby Thinks He's a Train," "I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me," "The Way We Make a Broken Heart," and "Tennessee Flat Top Box" are included along with the Top 20 country hit "It Hasn't Happened Yet" and the LP tracks "Right or Wrong," "My Old Man," and "Big River." Of course, Cash has had many more popular recordings than just these ten, and the selection is random -- there's nothing any more "country" about these "sounds" than the singer's other songs. But a complete neophyte will get a good idea of her music at an inexpensive price by purchasing this short disc.
