Classic eighties country music

"Dan Seals first achieved fame in the seventies as one half of England Dan and John Ford Coley. You may remember them for I'd really love to see you tonight. Eventually, Dan and John went their separate ways. Dan switched to country music and was very successful for a few years. This collection contains his most successful songs, many of them being number one hits on the country charts. Although Dan's music had a contemporary edge, it was rooted in tradition so most fans of traditional country should be able to appreciate it.

Among the many excellent songs here, the best of all is Meet me on Montana, an outstanding duet with Marie Osmond. If you have made up your mind about Marie based on her seventies pop music, you are in for the same surprise that I got. Before I came across this song, I ignored Marie's music. When I first heard this duet in the eighties, I was blown away and I have since bought some of Marie's country albums.

Most of the songs here are ballads but Bop (as the title suggests) is one to get your toes tapping. Three-time loser (despite its title) is another brilliant up-tempo song. The remaining songs are all excellent though my favorites among them are God must be a cowboy, Everything that glitters and One friend.

If you enjoy eighties country music, you'll love this album."
This is one of Dan's very best ever collections. I love it!

"I have this cassette and play it often. I had to have the CD. These songs are some of the most relaxing listening. I live in the west but work on the east coast. Listening to these songs takes me home and makes time away seem shorter. Thank you, Dan, for this wonderful collection!Carole Nevada"

"Wow! This album is terrific! I always did like Dan Seals's songs "Everything That Glitters Is Not Gold", "One Friend", and "Three Time Loser". I remember listening to them when I was a child. Those were my three favorite songs on the album, but the whole album was fantastic! He sings with feeling and you can tell that it's from the heart and that he really means the words he's singing. He can sing sad songs about losing love and romance ("Three Time Loser", "Everything That Glitters"), he can sing about his memories of his first car ("My Old Yellow Car"), and he can sing upbeat songs about wanting to dance all night ("Bop"). I highly recommend this album if you are a country music fan. This is country music the way it was meant to be sung. You won't regret buying this album!"
