Dont Close Your Eyes, this is the Album that solidified Keith Whitleys Career.When you hear the first song you can pretty much tell youve Stumbled onto something worth listening too.Flying colors is a song about a guy getting dumped by his girl, and her thinking her leaving would be the death of him.But, She gets tricked because he comes out A lot stronger man in the end and as the Song says he came through with Flying colors after losing you! meaning the girl that left him.Then we get to song number two Its all coming back to me now is a good song about a man trying to get over a girl and finding out that its not an Easy thing to do a line in the song says it all My mind cant forget what my heart wont allow its all coming back to me now.Then theres song number three Lucky dog its a kinda humorous little song about a guy finding a good girl and remembering the bad relationships he had to go through to get to her and he considers hisself A"lucky dog" Then theres song number four this song is probably The song that most remember Keith By its Called Dont close your Eyes.Its about a guy falling in love with a girl and trying to give her love unlike shes never known but,she keeps thinking of her last love and he tells her Dont close your eyes let it be me dont pretend its him in some fantasy Darling just once let yesterday go,and youll find more love than youve ever known just hold me tight when you love me tonight and Dont close your eyes.I think you get the message!Then theres a song after this called the Birmingham turnaround, its about a guy,and his girl having a lovers spat and him driving off and trying to forget her but, he turns around and heads back to her Great song!Then theres Some ol" side road now this song truly showcases Keiths vocal abilities to a t.Read more ›

If you discount "Greatest Hits" and "Best of" compilations, this is the one album to own. This is the best album by the greatest singer. Classic songs such as "When You Say Nothing At All, Don't Close Your Eyes, and I'm No Stranger To The Rain, remain timeless and never get old. The ballads "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" co-written by Keith, "Would These Arms Be In Your Way" with great background vocals by Emmylou Harris, and the old Lefty Frizzel song "I Never Go Around Mirrors" are top notch slower songs. The album has great balance with up tempo numbers "Honky Tonk Heart" and "Birmingham Turnaround" being the best. I rate this album slightly higher than the follow up "I Wonder Do You Think Of Me"
mainly on the strength of the classic songs, three of the best of all time.

Format: Audio CD
Keith Whitley's premature death in his mid-thirties means that we will never know just how great he might have been. He was an obscure singer for many years before eventually making the big time. This was his first full-length album on a major label. His next album was almost completed when he died - others put the finishing touches to it and released it posthumously - so this album was the last that Keith released in his lifetime.

The album yielded three number one country hits for Keith including the title track (a superb ballad) and I'm no stranger to the rain (an up-tempo song). Nevertheless, the most famous song of the three by far is another superb ballad, When you say nothing at all. Alison Krauss covered it for a Keith Whitley tribute album, her version later being released on her hugely successful compilation, Now that I've found you. Later, other artists covered the song including Ronan Keating, whose version made number one in the British pop charts. The versions by Alison and Ronan (and maybe some others) reached many people who have never heard any of Keith's music. Whether Keith's version of the song is the best is irrelevant although I think his version is as good as any of the other vesrions of the song. Whoever else records it, Keith's version remains the original.

Apart from the three number one country hits, there are many other excellent songs here including I never go around mirrors (a cover of the Lefty Frizzell classic), It's all coming back to me now, Lucky dog, The Birmingham turnaround and Honky tonk heart.

If you enjoy traditional country music, you will surely love Keith's music - especially this album.

This is one of my favorite albums of all times. I purchased this album back in 2000 for the two popular tracks "Don't Close Your Eyes" and "When You Say Nothing At All." Through the years I have come to love every song on this album, and have come to be a huge Keith Whitley fan. This continues to be one of my favorite albums, which blows me away because I've been listening to it for 10 years. There is something really special about this album that is a must have for fans of country sounds like Merle Haggard and George Jones. Keith Whitley's voice creates a certain magic in these songs that stirs the emotion and feeling which they were meant to convey. This work leaves me feeling the loss of what this musician may have accomplished if his career was not so tragically short. This album is hands down a must have for country music fans.
