Jeannie C Riley cd Harper Valley pta-The Plantation
A 56 track, double cd set anthologising Jeannie C. Riley's recordings for the Plantation label between 1968 and 1970.
 
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, Jeannie 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..  
 
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 and this unique compilation redresses the balance.
 
- Comprising Jeanie's 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.
- Features ten U.S. Country chart hits, including the multi-million selling, crossover Harper Valley P.T.A
- Many of these songs are making their CD debuts.
