I have it it in LP, Cassette and CD.

A little on the syrupy side, but a beautiful musical arrangement and a strong vocal performance by Mandrell make it a Mandrell fan favorite.

I love this album but I love it's follow-up (I'll be your jukebox tonight) even better.

Format: Audio CD
This album, released in the summer of 1987, is Barbara's greatest collection of new material in her catalog! It flows well between songs, and she gives some of her greatest vocal performances of her career in this set.

The opening cut is a cover of a Waylong Jennings / Willie Nelson duet from a few years earlier. Barbara slowed her version of the tempo down a bit from the Jennings / Nelson version, and delivered a solid performance.

Speaking of Jennings, the late country legend also penned the track "Angels Love Bad Men", and joined Barbara near the close of the song. It was released as the third single from the album in early 1988, but only made it to #48 on the country charts, as did the previous single release, the bluesy title track. Both songs should have been bigger radio hits, but country radio was virtually turning its back on Mandrell by the late 80's in favor of newer artists.

The lead-off single, "Child Support", faired slightly better than its successors, reaching #13 on the Billboard country charts. A little on the syrupy side, but a beautiful musical arrangement and a strong vocal performance by Mandrell make it a Mandrell fan favorite.

The strongest performance on this collection is "You Can't Get There From Here", a pretty ballad about trying to get over a past love, but not being quite able to. The melody and lyrics fit Mandrell's sultry voice like a glove, and probably would have been a pretty good hit for her. (It was originally slated to be the third single from SURE FEELS GOOD in the spring of 1988, before EMI decided at the last minute to go instead with "Angels Love Bad Men" as the next release.)

Her R&B-flavored cover of Vern Gosdin's "Hangin' On" is another cut that Mandrell truly excelled on.

I originally bought this on vinyl but later replaced it with a CD. Curiously, it is listed on Amazon.com only in vinyl format, but at least that enables me to review it for you.

As the title implies, this album finds Barbara singing songs of hope and joy. Child support, perhaps the standout track, is about a single mother's love for her child. The two tracks that originally opened each side of the vinyl album (tracks 1 and 6 on the CD) are both by Waylon Jennings. Barbara's cover of Just to satisfy you is very funky and I love it. Waylon co-wrote the other song (Angels love bad men) especially for Barbara and added some of his own vocals to it - it's brilliant. Elsewhere on the album, song titles such as It all came true, Sunshine street, I'm glad I married you and Sure feels good tell you all you need to know about the mood of the songs.

Musically, this was typical eighties country with a range of instruments from steel guitars to synthesisers. I love this album but I love it's follow-up (I'll be your jukebox tonight) even better. I reviewed that one in cassette format on Amazon.com. If you enjoy Barbara's music, you'll enjoy both these albums - if you can find them.
