Good Overview

(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the five and a half years between his 1987 debut WILD EYED DREAM and this 1992 hits collection, Ricky Van Shelton had established himself as one of country music's most dependable hitmakers. All eleven previously released tracks included here made number one on Billboard's country chart. From his ballad remakes "Statue Of A Fool" and "Life Turned Her That Way" to his uptempo originals "I Am A Simple Man" and "I've Cried My Last Tear For You," Shelton's fluid baritone makes each number a deserved success.In addition, to the stellar quality of the recordings, GREATEST HITS PLUS stood out for other reasons. It contains 14 songs, unlike the standard ten found on nearly all new country releases at the time. Also, most new country collections contained only one new track, if that, and GREATEST HITS PLUS offered three. "Just As I Am' is an uplifting religious ballad while "Wild Man" is a fiercely honkytonkin' statement. The Elvis hit "Wear My Ring Around Your Neck" was recorded by Shelton for the HONEYMOON IN VEGAS soundtrack and concludes this collection on a rowdy note.The omission of "I Meant Every Word He Said" (the only number one hit of Shelton's not included) and his breakthrough single "Crime Of Passion" keep GREATEST HITS PLUS from "ultimate" status, but its many "extras" (including extensive liner notes) compensate immensely. This package was instrumental in encouraging other country artists to give the consumer more music for their money, and for that, five stars is not enough."
