"A far cry better than Volume I, "Greatest Country Hits of the '80's Volume II" is a wonderful selection of country tunes you'll want to play over and over again. This gem of an album truly shines. Starting lively with "Guitars,Cadillacs" by Dwight Yoakam, the pace softens with Highway 101 singing "Somewhere Tonight" (a personal favorite), The Forrester Sisters "(I'd Choose) You Again", and "On The Other Hand" by Randy Travis (another personal favorite). "I'm Just An Old Chunk Of Coal (But I'm Gonna Be A Diamond One Day" by country legend John Anderson adds a nice upbeat tempo that steers the album down a meandering country lane that leads to Hank Williams, Jr.'s foot-stompin' "Born To Boogie." From lively to lovely, the delightful collaboration of Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris singing "Those Memories Of You" is an album highlight, followed by Crystal Gayle and Eddie Rabbit crooning "You And I." "Country Club" by Travis Tritt provides the perfect prelude to "Long Hard Road (The Sharecropper's Dream)" performed by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band; which tells the story of a poor sharecropper's life--an American country classic, and a befitting ending to a fine country album."
