A Great Collection From a Legend
Jess | Coal Country, PA | 10/24/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember being totally enthralled by Don Williams while growing up; an outstanding performer. He is an artist easily overlooked, yet when you look at the songs he has released, you cannot help but to be floored. In an era when Kenny & Dolly were singing about "Islands in the Stream" over keyboards and synthesizers, and the suburban elite were donning cowboy hats because John Travolta made them "cool", Don Williams was still standing motionless and delivering straight froward, no-nonsense, country music. And where did he ever get that voice???? Only Johnny Cash and Dave Dudley had deeper voices. This collection is all-inclusive and includes not only the signatures "Amanda" and "Tulsa Time", but also offers a few lesser known gems, such as: "Nobody But You" and "The ties that Bind". Best of all, these are the original recordings....not a compilation of newly recorded original songs by an aging artist. A very good album by an artist with real class. A+"

"I grew up listening to Don Williams. Listening to every song brought back memories from my child hood. This is country music. Not country music mixed with rock. These are songs about life. This is an awesome CD to listen to by yourself or with a group of friends. I would suggest this CD to everyone."
Best American single CD of Don's music

"Don Williams was extremely popular in the seventies and eighties. He had many big hits on the American country charts and was even more popular in Britain, tough this is not obvious from his modest total of two hits. One of these (I recall a gypsy woman) wasn't even released as a single in America, so you won't find it here or on any other American compilation. Look for it on a British compilation.

Twenty of the twenty-five tracks here made the top two in the country charts, with most going to number one. Among the classics are You're my best friend, Turn out the lights, Till the rivers all run dry, Say it again, Some broken hearts never mend, I'm just a country boy, Tulsa time, It must be love, I believe in you and Lord I hope this day is good.

In the year 2000, a double-CD (Anthology) was released in America containing forty of Don's finest recordings including all the tracks here, together with Lay down beside me, Falling again, Miracles, If I needed you (with Emmylou), Walking a broken heart and several other hits including more of Don's Capitol and RCA hits.

This is the strongest American single CD of Don's music, packed full of classic songs. If you are looking for a collection of Don's hits on the country charts, I recommend that you either buy this or pay the extra for Anthology, depending on whether you want the other fifteen tracks."
