"This is Ronnie at the height of his stunning career. From the pure country smash from 1985, "She Keeps the Home Fires Burning" to the smooth, soul-influenced "Lost in the '50s Tonight" this album features Milsap at his best. Although Milsap changed the style he played in the mid-70s by this time, his music nonetheless always satisfied and it is definitely a must-have for the country collector, pop collector, or the Milsap fan."
Milsap's Mid-1980s Peak On Supplemental RCA Collection

"Ronnie Milsap's mid-1980s string of pop/country hits maps to one of country music's most successful, yet blandest, periods: the early 1980s, when his then-RCA labelmates Sylvia, Deborah Allen, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers (alone and together) dominated country and pop charts."Greatest Hits 2" omits one of his biggest hits of the period, "Make No Mistake (She's Mine)" with Rogers. (Thankfully, it also omits the goofy "She Loves My Car.") But Milsap's crossover hits gathered here added enough Memphis grit to his Nashville sound to rise just above the pack. You hear the sly smile while singing "I'll be the bill you forgot to pay...I'll be the song on the radio...I'll be the reason that you tell the boys no" on 1981's Top 5 hit, "No Gettin' Over Me." Milsap's mid-80s sound crossed country with softer early rock n' roll; this is seen not only in 1985's huge, evocative hit "Lost In The Fifties" but his Top 20 remake of Chuck Jackson's "Any Day Now." His smooth countrypolitan take on "Am I Losing You" owes much to former RCA employees Jim Reeves (who hit with the song) and Elvis Presley (who once duetted with Milsap on 1968's wrenchingly sad "Don't Cry Daddy.")But these soft pop/country sounds, exemplified by "I Wouldn't Have Missed It For The World" and "Don't You Know How Much I Love You," wouldn't rule for long. Less than one year after this set's release, Randy Travis and Dwight Yoakam hit with their debuts and turned country back toward its traditional roots. Milsap survived briefly, even scoring a few more hits before finally relinquishing his perch to hat acts like Clint Black and Garth Brooks."Greatest Hits 2" is a solid buy for the budget-minded, but longtime Milsap fans needing a collection are better served with the "Essential" set on RCA or the 2 disc, "40 #1 Hits" on Virgin."

"Ronnie Milsap does a fantastic job in this album filled with great memories. His songs have a lot of thought and meaning behind them. For a guy without sight, he sure has a fantastic view of life!"
