Some Of My Best Friends Are Old Songs
RADIO HEART | Paradise | 02/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got to tell ya, I love The Mandrell Sisters; Barbara, Irlene, and Louise. Who have all made it successfully in the music business at one time or another. Irlene for her dumb blonde routines on Hee Haw and the Mandrells show, Barbara for her ultimate and untimely voice, and last but never the least, Louise. I always go for the underedog, or not so viewed artist. And Louise has simply done it in that realm. I still remember each and every song heard on TV and radio.. just as it were yesterday. From "GOODBYE HEARTACHE" to "MAYBE MY BABY" to "RUNAWAY HEART" which Louise has sertainly done with me. Makes me want to shout out "I WANNA SAY YES!!" Yes!! Yes!!, Buy this Anthology cd. You will not be disapointed!"
In the shadow of sister Barbara

"Barbara Mandrell is one of my all-time favorite singers, but she is not the only talented singer in her family. Unfortunately for Louise, sisters cannot all be successful unless they form a joint act (like so many, from the Andrews sisters to Shedaisy) or unless they do significantly different music (like Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle, or Allison Moorer and Shelby Lynne). Louise's music was not sufficiently different from Barbara's to allow her to achieve more than a limited amount of success.Many of the songs here were written or co-written by R C Bannon, who sometimes joined Louise on duets. Two of their duets are featured here - Where there's smoke there's fire and Christmas is just a song for us this year.The foot-stomping I'm not through loving you yet, a Holly Dunn song, was (I think) Louise's biggest country hit, but perhaps the most recognisable songs will be Some girls have all the luck (a hit for Rod Stewart as Some guys have all the luck) and Save me (a song first recorded by Britain's Clodagh Rodgers, but which has been covered by others including the all-female South African group Clout).Another guest here is Eric Carmen. His duet with Louise, As long as we got each other, is featured, as are two songs that he wrote or co-wrote, Maybe my baby and I wanna hear it from your lips.This is an outstanding collection from a singer who is almost as good as her more famous sister."

"you REALLY must get this GREAT c.d.! all 16 of her top 40 hits are here, 4 others that charted # 51 #52 #56 #74 and one that didn't. her voice and delivery are sooo good on EVERY song, you really need this in your collection! some of my favorites are -'save me' #6 in 1983; -'too hot too sleep' #10 in 1983; -'i'm not through loving you yet' #7 in 1984; -'i wanna hear it from your lips' #35 in 1986; [and it is true with me as it is with lots of us ] 'some of "our" best friends are old songs' #20 in 1982."
