An Album By A Master Song Writer
Peter Durward Harris | 03/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sometimes I think that Mac Davis wrote the soundtrack for my life. These songs were hits in the seventies and they are timeless classics. I've played this album for people who had never heard of Mac Davis before and had them say "Yeah, that's exactly how I felt". In my opinion this album is essential for any Country or American Pop Music collection."
Great music from the early eighties
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 03/22/2003

"Mac's main musical legacy is as a songwriter - one of the many songs he wrote for others was In the ghetto, a big hit for Elvis Presley in the late sixties - but he also recorded some fine music of his own. This particular compilation is made up of songs originally recorded in the early eighties. Mac wrote seven of the ten songs here.The most famous of these songs is the tongue-in-cheek It's hard to be humble. You either love or hate this song, but in any case it's not typical of the songs here.Let's keep it that way, one of the three songs not written by Mac, was first recorded by Anne Murray. It was the title track of one of her late seventies albums and was intended to be a single, but that plan was dropped and You needed me became the single instead. Mac eventually had a country hit with his version of Let's keep it that way.For me, the two outstanding songs here are Hooked on music and Texas in my rear view mirror. The first is about his musical inspiration and the second is about his attempt to make the big time. Of the other songs, I particularly like Rodeo clown and the affectionate You're my bestest friend. There is also a fine cover of Rodney Crowell's Shame on the moon.Mac Davis never made it big as a singer, but this compilation is worth a listen if you enjoy country music of the era."
Mac Davis sang "I Will always Love You"
Linda B. Ard | Ponchatoula, LA United States | 01/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the mid to late 70's you sang a song entitled "I Will Love You
Always" which was different than that of Dolly Parton's. This was as pretty a song as any that you have ever sang. I really do
enjoy your music, have listened to it always. I just wish that I
knew how to find this practicular song of yours. Thanks a million..."
