CD Reviews

Brilliant sixties country
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 10/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the late sixties, Jack Greene was a very important country singer, but now he is almost forgotten, which is rather sad, because he was brilliant.By far the best known song is There goes my everything - it was his biggest hit (country #1 for seven weeks) and was covered by (among others) Engelbert Humperdinck and Elvis, who both recorded pop versions of the song. Statue of a fool was revived by Ricky van Shelton in the late eighties. There are three duets with Jeannie Seely (who's big solo hit was Don't touch me - her music is even harder to find than Jack's) and many other excellent songs.In answer to a previous reviewer asking about the album title, he only had to read the liner notes to see that Jack's band were called the Jolly green giants. While I agree with the same reviewer that Until my dreams come true should have been included, that track can be found on Best of the best - if you want it badly enough. It's absence does not detract from a still excellent collection. I'd like to see more of Jack's (and Jeannie's) music on CD, but I don't expect to get the chance any time soon."

"I received this CD today and have been playing it over and over. This is good old traditional country music. Great beat, tugging at your heart and soul type honky tonk music. Where or where are these type of songs in todays "Country"."
Get this while you can!

"Fantasic music. I docked it a star because for some reason they include all his hits except for "Until My Dreams Come True," which the notes say is included. And also for not including 2 of his best songs, "The Last Letter" and "Lord is that Me?" These are the original recordings of his greatest hits. The notes are a little lacking, and there is no recording info. This could have been so much better. But of all the available stuff on him, this is by far the best, and probably the only collection that will be released on him in the near future."
