"In the '80s, after the crosssover success of the "Urban Cowboy" movie soundtrack and multi-platinum artists like Kenny Rogers and Juice Newton, many country singers vied for crossover success. Even respected singer/songwriters like Rosanne Cash, Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris were trying their hand at cleaverly disguised pop music. However, Holly Dunn was concerned with making pure country records, and she did so to marvelous effect, as shown in the songs she chose for this hits collection.
Her most memorable hits "Daddy's Hands" and "You Really had Me Going" are reason enough to own this collection, but most of the CD is equally as great. The only head-scratcher here is why the Top-10 hit "That's What Your Love Does To Me" was left out of this compilation, while the non-hit "No One Takes The Train Anymore" is included.
Still, this collection is terrific country music (most of it deftly written by Dunn herself) with strong messages in each song. If you are a fan of true country, chances are this disk will become a favorite."
