Carrying the outlaw tradition into the nineties

"Following Waylon in the seventies and Hank Williams Junior in the eighties, along came Travis Tritt in the nineties. The musical lineage is obvious to anybody familiar with outlaw country music, but Travis maintains the quality set by his illustrious predecessors.This compilation covers the early nineties, which were also the most successful years that Travis had. He sang two main types of songs - heart wrenching ballads and hard rocking songs, both of which are well represented here.The rocking songs include Put some drive in your country, The whiskey ain't working (with Marty Stuart), Country club and Trouble, a cover of the Elvis Presley hit. Among the ballads here are Here's a quarter call someone who cares, Help me hold on, Tell me I was dreaming and a cover of the fifties classic Only you and you alone.This is an excellent collection of Travis Tritt's finest songs. If you enjoy the music of Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Junior, you will enjoy this."

"Greatest Hits-From The Beginning is a solid collection of hits from Travis Tritt. My personal favorite off this record is Travis' big hit from '91, "Here's A Quarter, Call Someone Who Cares". I think that's one of the best kiss-off songs that anybody has recorded. Travis rocks elsewhere on the record, too. There are plenty of good up-tempo songs here: Travis' debut song "Country Club"; the rocking songs "Put Some Drive In Your Country", "I'm Gonna Be Somebody", "Ten Feet Tall And Bulletproof", and "T-R-O-U-B-L-E"(which in Travis' hands sounds better than it did when Elvis Presley originally recorded it, in my opinion); and the honky-tonker "The Whiskey Ain't Workin'", Travis' hit duet with his buddy Marty Stuart. Travis, however, isn't just a Southern country rocker. He shows on this record that he can sing a great ballad. There are plenty of his best slow songs here, among them "Anymore", "Foolish Pride", "Tell Me I Was Dreaming", "Help Me Hold On", "Drift Off To Dream" and his previously unreleased hit single "Sometimes She Forgets". These are all powerful, well-done songs. The thing I especially like about this record is that Travis put together a pretty comprehensive collection of his greatest hits and didn't include a bunch of new songs while leaving out old ones(as did Clint Black, another artist who, like Travis, made his debut in '89). Those who are Travis Tritt fans, as well as those who just bought their first Travis Tritt record, will enjoy this one. This is a five-star record."
