The RCA years

"Eddie's most successful years were with Elektra from the mid seventies to the early eighties although I've yet to see a compilation of his music from that period that even comes close to being definitive. Eddie eventually moved to RCA and this compilation contains the best music from that period of his career.
The set opens with Eddie's cover of the rock'n'roll classic, The wanderer. Eddie does a good job of this without matching the brilliance of the original. The remaining songs are all originals - the final track is NOT a cover of the sixties song that Peter and Gordon had an international number one hit with. Among the other tracks is Eddie's duet with Juice Newton, Both to each other friends and lovers and several wonderful solo tracks, best of which may be I wanna dance with you.
While the music here is of less importance than Eddie's Elektra music, it is definitely worth searching for if you like his style."
All the RCA hits

"Eddie only recorded two albums for RCA, "Rabbitt Trax" and "I Wanna Dance With You." This now out of print 1989 compilation collects all the hits he had in that period from 1985-89. "I Wanna Dance With You," "The Wanderer," and the fantastic Juice Newton duet "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" were all #1 hits. "Repetitive Regret," "Gotta Have You," "A World without Love" and "We Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" were all top 10's. "That's Why I Fell in Love with You" was the only single from this time to not make the top 40, and "Letter From Home" and "She's an Old Cadillac" were album cuts.
There is not a bad song on this collection, it has a variety of up tempo numbers and slower songs. It is the perfect collection to summarize his RCA work."
