“The Greatest Female Country Singer Of Them All” --Johnny Cash
Anita Carter is the great “lost” voice of Nashville.
The Appalachian siren, who once heard, will break your heart and mend your soul.
Daughter of the legendary Mother Maybelle Carter and sister to the exalted June
Carter Cash, Anita sang, played (a mean upright bass) and recorded her entire life
(solo, in duet and with The Carter Family). Featured here are rare and previously
un-reissued sides and 45 only cuts from her mid-1960s and early 1970s tenures with
RCA Victor and Columbia Records.
Chill to the hauntingly prophetic “2001 (Ballad To The Future)”, thrill to stunning duets with Waylon Jennings, Hank Snow and Johnny Cash or be blistered by the country-fuzz of “I Don't Need You Anymore” and the feisty snarl of “It’s My Life (And I’ll Live It)”.
Deluxe collector’s edition remastered with love and care from the original master tapes including exclusive liner notes and rare photos. Underrated and under appreciated, Anita Carter possessed a voice you will simply never forget.
*Criminally underrated Anita Carter was the backbone of the 1960s and 1970s “Carter
Family”. As brother-in-law Johnny Cash said (in his autobiography), “The Greatest
Female Country Singer Of Them All!”
*Remastered 2009 from the original master tapes!
