by: Timi Yuro

The Pure Gold collection Hurt includes only 12 tracks of country-soul paragon Timi Yuro, but after considering the preponderance of re-recordings flooding the market, the compilation earns marks simply for sticking to the originals. After leading off with Yuro's biggest hit, the orchestral heartbreak of "Hurt," it only picks up two of her other best-known performances, "Smile" and "She Really Loves You." Shell out a few more dollars and instead spring for EMI's Hurt: The Best of Timi Yuro or RPM's The Lost Voice of Soul! ~ John Bush
