I love this cd. It has alot of great songs from the 90s. Pam Tillis is one of the most over-looked country artists.
I really love the first song, "The Land of the Living" and "Queen of Denial."
The Essential Pam Tillis

"Pam Tillis broke onto the scene in 1991 with her debut album PUT YOURSELF IN MY PLACE. Immediately she became a hit, with her blend of country and her sweet and memorable voice. Her first hit single was "Don't Tell Me What To Do", followed by the hit which defined her career, the ballad "Maybe It Was Memphis". This was followed by hits such as the fun and spirited "Shake the Sugar Tree", and the beautiful ballad "Let That Pony Run". Probably one of her cathiest songs is the uptempo song "Cleopatra, Queen of Denial". "Spilled Perfume" is one of my favorites, about a one night stand. "When You Walk In The Room" is classic, and "In Between Dances" is a really sweet ballad. "Mi Vida Loca (My Crazy Life)" is another fun uptempo song, and the closing "The River and The Highway" is a beautiful ballad about two scorned lovers, with one of the most beautiful videos I've seen in country music. The GREATEST HITS also includes two great new songs. "All The Good Ones Are Gone", the first single from the set, is a ballad relenting that all the good men are taken, and that time may be running out. "Land of the Living" is my favorite though, a fun upbeat song about telling someone to join the land of the living, because things have changed. Overall you can't lose with this collection, its essential listening, and reminds you what a shame it is she is no longer played anymore on country radio."
A "Greatest Hits" album that's REALLY a greatest hits album!

"The title "so-and-so's greatest hits" is slapped onto too many albums these days, even when many of the singer's Top 10 hits are missing, and when the hits on the album are diluted with a number of less-great songs. But this Greatest Hits album is exactly what it claims to be. Pam Tillis had 13 top 10 singles between 1991 and 1997 (two of which were introduced on this album); 11 of those 13 hits are on this 12-track CD. And the sub-top-10 12th track that appears in place of the 2 missing Top 10 songs, both of which peaked at No. 6, is "Cleopatra", a classic that HAS to be on a Pam Tillis greatest hits album even if it didn't crack the top 10. You can buy this album with confidence you're getting essentially all of Pam's best-known hits and no filler.
Oh - and I really like Pam's songs and her singing. So with all that going for it, how can I rate this CD at anything less than 5 stars?"
