"Before Dolly Parton and Nancy Sinatra, there was Norma Jean. Sassy, forthright, melancholic and acerbic, she shone brightly for a while but history has been unkind, relegating Norma to the status of country music footnote. Perhaps her on-stage and off-stage relationship with Porter Wagoner placed her in his shadow or perhaps she was just plain ahead of her time? Witness the feisty drawl of Heaven Help The Working Girl, the predatory howl of Pursuing Happiness and the haunting chill of The Shirt for some of Norma's brilliance. Collected here are all of Norma Jean's chart hits and many rare sides that should have been hits, remastered with love and care from the original RCA Victor tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes and photos. Norma Jean, the sharpest jewel in a sugar coating." (label info) 30 track CD, with 20 pages booklet
