AllMusic Review by

This anthology from the Queen of Country Music Kitty Wells chronicles the singer's early years beginning with her signature 1952 hit "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" into her early-'60s peak. A pioneering voice in country music, Wells was the genre's first female superstar and this two-disc set offers up a decade's worth of tracks, including every one of her charting singles along with B-sides and duets with the likes of Red Foley, Webb Pierce, and Carol Sue Wright. It's a thorough representation of the songs that made her a legend during one of country music's greatest periods.
