We gave it a B+

The songs on the four-CD set Souvenirs, 1955-69 set range from the banal (”A Nurse in the U.S. Army Corps”) to the timeless (”Together”), but Connie Francis’ unique catch-in-the-throat voice, intonation, and gift for building performances make even the weaker numbers shine. It’s a pity that the remastering is less than ideal on two of her best tracks, ”Who’s Sorry Now?” and ”Vacation.” B+
