4.0 out of 5 stars Best compilation so far August 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This compilation of the multi-media artist Mac Davis is the best to appear so far. While often thought of as a country artist, much of his material was more pop-oriented. Many of his recordings charted higher pop than country.

This collection of twenty tracks contains most of his hits but is limited to his Columbia recordings and contains none of his output from his Casablanca years such as 1980's "It's Hard To Be Humble".

Sound quality is very good with all tracks in true stereo. Included is an eight-page booklet with a brief musical history, track details and a few pics. Not comprehensive but this new collection takes the top honors as a Davis compilation among those to appear so far.

When it comes to music; (whether it was one year ago or fourty or more years ago) I always remember a remarkable talent and Mac Davis is one of those artists with a remarkable talent and most of the musical talent that I am familiar with and enjoy as a fan;( whether it is Mac Davis, Keith Urban, etc ) there is one particular song by that artist that is a favorite of mine and sometimes that favorite song can be very hard to find; especially when it charted in 1970. When it comes to Mac Davis; that song just happens to be the beautiful, Whoever Finds This; I Love You. Some time ago I purchased Mac's, A Golden Classics Edition, CD and that ballad is on it HOWEVER it did not sound like the version I remember so I kept searching and the search stopped right here. This, The Best Of Mac Davis, CD has the beautiful instrumental version of, Whoever Finds This; I Love You, I was looking for. I also noticed that Mac's inspirational, Stop And Smell The Roses, versions are different on these two CDs with this version also being the one I remember and prefer. I love both Disc's but this is the one I listen to mostly.

This CD also has the landmark classics, Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me, One Hell Of A Woman, and, Rock N Roll ( I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life ), on it also and I can relate to that last song somewhat; even though I am just a fan.

Mac's talent also shines here as he sings the gorgeaus ballads, Forever Lovers, I'll Paint You A Song, and the very uplifting and inspirational, ( If You Add ) All The Love In The World. Mac has a Children's Chorus backing him up on that one.....Fantastic.

Also being an extremely talented songwriter; Mac also wrote classic tunes for other artists including Elvis Presley.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Love-still going strong April 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant song writer, excellent singer, and not a bad actor!! He was my first crush at 7 yrs old and I still adore him. From his writing success of "In the Ghetto" for Elvis (the original rock God) to his current success as an actor on the series "Rodney"--(by the way, he's not dead by choking on a ham sandwich, I believe that was the Mama Cass "rumor"). I would love to hear a new releases CD, even though the greatest hits is great. Maybe he could title the new release, "Ballads from Beyond the Grave"!!

This is an excellent tape. It has a variety of songs, many of which were popular a few years ago. The tape brought back memories of good, enjoyable music.

5.0 out of 5 stars best of mac July 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Though I did not buy this cd from Amazon, I must say that this is one of the best in my collection of CDs, EVER!!!! Wonderful songs, and if I'm not mistaken, all but about 2 of these songs were written by Mac himself. Some of the songs on this cd are Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me, Stop And Smell The Roses, Whoever Finds This, Your Side Of the Bed, One Hell Of a Woman, Kiss It and Make It Better. If you like Mac Davis, YOU WILL LOVE THIS CD!!!!!! I bought mine at a little thrift store in Moulton, Alabama for less than $5! I have played it OVER and OVER!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Girl, You're a Hot-Blooded Woman-Child... March 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...and it's warm where you're touchin' me...if you can get past that lyric (from Mac's only #1 hit "Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me"), you're doing a bit better than me. Anyway, Mac Davis was a jack-of-all-trades during the '70's, writing hits like "In the Ghetto" for Elvis, starring in the fine "North Dallas Forty" with Nick Nolte, and generally being a witty presence on talk and game shows. Meanwhile, he charted 12 Hot 100 singles on Columbia between 1970 and 1976, 11 of which are included here. (Surprisingly, one of his best-known songs, "I Believe in Music", missed the chart and is not on this disc.) Mac's three other big (Top Fifteen) hits, "Stop and Smell the Roses", "One Hell of a Woman", and "Rock and Roll (I Gave You the Best Years of My Life)", rarely got played once they fell off the charts. They are all pretty good; I don't know why they didn't get more airplay as oldies.

A couple of morbid ones for you: "Forever Lovers", in which a honeymooning couple never gets to consummate their marriage because he gets killed going across the street for champagne, and "Whoever Finds This, I Love You", about a brief friendship between an old man and an orphan begun when he finds her "I'm lonely" note on the ground. He dies and...she writes the same note again for someone else to find. I don't know how to feel about this. I hesitate to criticize a lonely orphan, but she writes the new note the FIRST DAY the old guy doesn't show. A little cold, no?

It would have been good to have the 1980 comeback hit "It's Hard To Be Humble" on here, but either Razor & Tie couldn't license it or they deliberately wanted to focus on the Columbia years.

The label, as was its standard, provides a good essay...OK, I'm still listening.
