Format: Audio CD
This is probably the best collection to date of David Houston's fine work. Houston was a raw honky-tonker from Louisiana who was smoothed out by Nashville's legend Billy Sherrill and went on to win two Grammy Awards for his signature song, "Almost Persuaded". That song is on this collection, along with every other major hit Houston had in the late 60's and early 70's, including his duets with Tammy Wynette ("My Elusive Dreams") and Barbara Mandrell ("After Closing Time"). Houston's soaring high tenor combined with Sherrill's masterful songwriting and engineering produced a unique sound that has never been duplicated. These are the original recordings, not the horrible re-records found on some other collections. Well worth the money if you are a fan of David Houston or of country music from the 1960's.

I bought this and his Pure Country CD, Both excellent. I can close my eyes and remember him and the joy his music has brought me over the years. This CD brings out the sweetness and clarity in his voice and is very well done. Congratulations!

David Houston had 24 Top Ten hits on the country charts. Having them all on this CD is outstanding. I've seen too many greatest hits collections go either too far or not far enough. This is a wonderful collection. I highly recommend it.

First of all this includes the ORIGINAL versions of all of David Houston's top 10 hits, plus his top 10's with Tammy Wynette and Barbara Mandrell. This is a little short of definite though. The cover graphics are awful. Why did they feel the need to put little drawings of guitars in the corners of the picture? The notes by Collin Escotte are very good, but that is the only thing on the 2 page insert. This more than filled the hole in my collection and completly makes "American Originals" obsolete. Of all the available collections up to now, this is by far the best one you can get.

The best comp available of David Houston's heyday with Epic Records, this CD contains 24 masterpieces of late '60s/early '70s country, all masterfully overseen by the great Billy Sherrill.

Houston's amazing voice could go from a whisper to a falsetto yodel in the drop of a hat. All the hits you could want are here, including the Grammy-winning crossover smash, "Almost Persuaded" and the duet with Tammy Wynette, "My Elusive Dreams". I've always been a fan of David's, and trust me, once you hear the big hits, you'll want to delve into his catalog even further!!
