It also offers such previously unavailable recordings as her own "I Didn't Know" and "Joanne," covers of "God Bless The Child," "Spinning Wheel" and others and the acoustic "The Seventh Son," "Feelin' Good," "Seasons Come, Seasons Go" and "Belinda." Among the rarities in the collection are "La Siepe," Gentry's Italian-language San Remo Song Festival of 1968; a Spanish version of "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" and a little-known duet with Kelly Gordon, "Love Took My Heart And Mashed That Sucker Flat."
