Available online, this compilation won't be in stores for a while, so if you would like to get it right away, and haven't done so yet, order today.

This wonderful compilation of Rita's songs spans her career. From Born a Woman to Saving Grace, Rita's son and long time manager, Wade Langham, carefully selected, with the assistance of her many fans and people she worked with, songs from every album she released. A great deal of time was spent, agonizing over song selection and we thank all of you, Rita's listeners, who gave us their thoughts and song preferences. Your input was incredibly helpful. Listen to the track samples listed on the product page, and you can check out these selections yourself.

We can't wait for you to listen this wonderful collection and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

We are very excited to present to you Traveling On a wonderful compilation of Rita's songs spanning her career.  From Born a Woman to Saving Grace, Rita's son and long time manager, Wade, carefully selected, with the assistance of her many fans, and people she worked with, songs from every album she released.

You may pre-order now, however, shipping will not occur for a few weeks. Sadly, we fear CD copies will not arrive in time for Christmas. Getting all the songs on the CD, was an important priority for us, and that meant some added time to ensure everyone was on board with this collection.

We hope you agree that waiting for the better product was the right decision too. Sure the wait was longer than we had hoped, but now it is finally here!  And--we have a special gift for all who pre-order: a $5 coupon code toward any purchase above $15.00 in the online store during the month of February.

 

Enjoy!
