In Praise of the Music, Especially Connie Smith.
19 August 2001 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

In THE LAS VEGAS HILLBILLIES the great Connie Smith sings close to the camera and she looks very beautiful, but her physical beauty is surpassed by her voice and singing abilities which are the best ever recorded by any female singer. She is not very famous today because she quit show biz in 1980 to raise her kids.

The other singers in THE LAS VEGAS HILLBILLIES are very good especially Del Revees when he sings "Women Do Funny Things to Me." This is an honest movie because it delivers what its name implies: good sixties real country music inside of a silly movie.

The music in THE LAS VEGAS HILLBILLIES is wonderful because the music from the sixties came from the people through DJs who could play the music that they liked. In contrast to today where the situation is inverted. Almost all the radio stations are owned by a few giant corporations, and every song aired must be approved by corporate managers. Today singers are selected by the corporations for airplay for their looks and youth and not their ability to sing. At least female country singers back then sang without showing off their belly buttons.

Some of the singers in THE LAS VEGAS HILLBILLIES such as Connie Smith who still retain fully their singing abilities are now trying to get their songs aired and are foiled by the corporate monopoly ownership of radio. Back in the sixties country singers, songs, and fans were for real. They did not put on airs, pretend to be somebody else, or take themselves too seriously. They were even humorous. In stark contrast to most of today's singers who are just corporate products that produce horrible music.
