M-M-Mel At His Best
William D. Ferrell | Poca, WV United States | 04/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mel Tillis is a class act. I'll never forget seeing his show at Camden Park in Huntington, WV back in 1986, and I can tell you he sounds just as good live as on his great recordings, and furthermore, Mel didn't mind a bit to stand and talk to his fans after she show. That counts a lot in my book.
Now, about the classic recordings on this CD: These are the recordings Mel recorded for MGM back in the early 1970's, and I can tell you after one listen to this CD, these classics have stood the test of time.
Among my favorites on here are "I Ain't Never", "Mental Revenge" and who can forget that classic line from "Memory Maker" that says "Her memory's like a bug and it keeps on a-crawling"... Now that line is an attention getter.
"Midnight Me and The BLues" is another great classic, as are "Sawmill", "Neon Rose" and "Heaven Everyday".
The one sone I don't remember hearing before I bought this CD is "Take My Hand", but it is a duet. The female vocalist is not named here, but I'm thinking that it's Sherry Bryce. She and Mel had a few hits back then and this sounds a lot like her voice.
I'm really dissappointed that "Arms Of A Fool" and "Brand New Mr. Me" aren't on here, but it's still a good collection and well worth the money. I wish it had some liner notes in it though.
I love these classic recordings and my 11 year old son does as well. This is just plain good stuff.

Enjoyable album

"It's hard to find a good Mel Tillis compilation CD, especially when you consider the size of musical library. One of the greatest songwriters ever, with none other than Ray Price and Webb Pierce delivering his material. This 11 track Cd could have provided some of Mel's more popular (and recognizable) songs (ie Coca Cola Cowboy); but at the same time, this Cd provides "Woman in the Back of My Mind" and "Stomp them Grapes". So, there's a little bit of everything here. This Polygram release provides no liner notes or artist info, but for the affordable price, a complaint is not warranted."
