This is a good CD. It's enjoyable from start to finish. However, there are so many "Greatest Hits" in Mel Tillis' career that it would take a box set to hold them... gee, now there's an idea. Maybe someone should produce a box set of Mel Tillis that could really represent all his great hits back through the years.

The first three songs are from the late '70s during Mel's second stint with MCA. Coca Cola Cowboy (for those of you too young to remember) is a straight-forward Country shuffle, then comes "I Believe In You" which is a pretty, slow love song.

The story goes, that Mel originally recorded I Believe In You with a steel guitar taking all the lead, but then he had to go out of town. The producers had an idea while Mel was gone and replaced the steel guitar with a flute and that's the way they released it. When Mel heard the recording, the story goes, he was outraged and stormed into the office at MCA and said "W-w-why did y-y-you put fl-fl-flutes in that r-record? I ain't n-n-no P-P-Peter P-P-Pan". The record turned out to be one of the biggest of the 1970's, and I think Mel wound up liking it very much.

Good Woman BLues cashes in on the back beat that Waylon's band was using at that time, but is a cool song.

New Patches is from Mel's third run with MCA in 1984. Great straight Country song.

"Southern Rain", "Your Body Is An Outlaw", "lind In Love", and "Lying Time Again" are from his early 1980's stay with Electry/ Warner Records, and the sound is more "polished" than the MCA recordings

The nexxt three are from my personal favorite period in Mel's career, the MGM years (early 1970's). "Heaven Everyday", "Commercial Affection" and "Sawmill".

Mel Tillis' laid back sound together with uplifting songs is medicine for the soul. Wonderful to listen to in the car on the way to work starting the day on a positive note, or on the way home to wind down towards a relaxing evening.

Even if you're not a country fan, Mel's music goes down easy. "Coca-Cola Cowboy" and "Commercial Affection" I especially like. This one's worth the money. I just wonder what compilation I'll find "Send Me Down to Tucson" on, you know, from one of the bareknuckle Clint Eastwood movies. Try this one; you'll like it.

I had this cassette tape and I needed a new cd to play in the car, but it didn't have all the songs on it the other one had

This is music that was popular when I was in high school and college. No comparison to the music that is labeled country today.

I had just bought Mel Tillis "Hitsides!" It is a great Mel Tillis CD. The reason I bought this CD is for the song "Commercial Affection". Both CD's have "Heaven Everyday". I recommend both of these CD's. There is not a lot of choice in Mel Tillis CD's. This CD also has some songs that are not on the more expensive "Hitside!"

He is a great singer. I finally have more of his songs on CD. Mel Tillis has always been one of my favorite singers.
