First album for MCA remains a classic

"Vince had been part of the music scene since the seventies but met with only limited success prior to the release of this album and the singles from it. The result was that, for a few years, Vince Gill became one of the hottest names in country music. Vince has a distinctive, high tenor voice, which he uses to good effect on this collection. He is also a great songwriter, as he shows on the first seven tracks here, all of which he wrote or co-wrote. Four major country hits can be found here, these being Never alone, Never knew lonely, When I call your name (the song that made everybody take notice of Vince) and Oklahoma swing. The first three are excellent ballads while the fourth is an outstanding up-tempo duet with Reba McEntire. As I write this, Oklahoma swing is not available anywhere else so it alone makes this album a worthwhile purchase. The other three hits can all be found on Souvenirs, a compilation that I've already reviewed. Souvenirs contains a different duet with Reba, The heart won't lie, but although I enjoy both, I prefer Oklahoma swing.Two more great up-tempo songs are included - Riding the rodeo and a cover of Guy Clark's Rita Ballou. We won't dance is a lovely mid-tempo song. Sight for sore eyes, Oh girl and We could have been are all wonderful ballads.Every track here is a gem. It's not difficult to work out why this album made Vince Gill into a major country star."
What a voice!

"Vince's breakthrough album is terrific. The hauntingly beautiful 'When I call your name' has to be one of the loveliest songs written. My other favourites on the album are 'Never knew lonely' and 'We won't dance'. His gorgeous tenor is so suited to the songs about lost love. You can hear the sadness in every word. A must for all lovers of good music."
