"I listened to this on cassette when I was younger, and now it has been released in CD format, Mel Street, unknown to many, stepped onto the country stage at the wrong time, though Nasville music has always overlooked many great artist, and has been demonized by many artist who went on to become quite reknown, and the same continues today, great artist like Chris Knight, who lives in Kentucky and others like Ray Wylie Hubbard, who was responsible for writing the song "Up Against The Wall Redneckmother" Ray Willie himself says it shouldn't have been written, jokingly, because it is as popular today as it was thirty tears ago. and Brian Burns who has a great album"Heavy Weather". Mel came around when country started to go from country to pop, remember"Smoky Mountain Rain" I try to forget. Here you will here real country in a song called Smoky Mountain Memories. Tragicaly, Mel decided to leave us as that song became a minor hit. I believe he saw where country was going, and it turned worse in the early eighties, with a lack of any talent, from some of the biggest names Nashville continued to push. For some,a loss of a style of music can be hard to deal with, and so it was with Mel.
Waylon, Jonny, and many others are gone, we still have Willie, Kris, and David Allen still performs, and Moe Bandy has a great recent CD, If you have not seen one of their performances, please check some of these artist, both old and young. If country dies it will leave a hole in are soul. Michael"
My first listen brought back a wonderful voice I had forgot

"He is simply one of the BEST hard-core country singers of all time. The sadder the songs, the more I love 'em!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR HARD-CORE COUNTRY MUSIC LOVERS!"

"Mel Street was a talented singer. It is a shame that his life ended so young. The song "Lovin' on Back Streets" is one of the best cheating songs of all time. Lets hope his music and memory lives on."
