A Great Collection Despite a Few Omissions...
Randy A. Bouse | 08/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Released between studio albums during her recovery from a devastating 1984 car crash, this encompasses Barbara's hits between 1979 and 1985.

The new song added to this collection for single release was "There's No Love In Tennessee", reaching #7 on the Billboard Country chart in 1985. This collection also contains 9 other Barbara Mandrell hits, including 4 #1's: "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool" (1981), "Years" (1980), "(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want To Be Right" (1979), and "One Of A Kind Pair Of Fools" (1983). The others were all Top Ten hits: "Wish You Were Here" (#2, 1982), "The Best Of Strangers" (#6, 1981), "Happy Birthday Dear Heartache" (#3, 1984), "Crackers" (#3, 1980), and "In Times Like These" (#4, 1983).

The obvious omissions from this release include Barbara's one other #1 from 1982, "'Til You're Gone", plus her Top 5 duet with Lee Greenwood from 1984, "To Me" (#3, 1984), "Fooled By A Feeling" (#4, 1979), and "Only A Lonely Heart Knows" (#2, 1984).

Otherwise, for the new fan looking for a place to start, this collection, along with 1979's THE BEST OF BARBARA MANDRELL, gives a great retrospect of Barbara's recording career from 1975 to 1985."
