Good Collection but missing a few good hits like "Put some Drive in Your Country" and "Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof" also "If I Lost You"

Overall a good collection worth having but they should have made this a 2 disk set with more good songs. Also "Bible belt" is missing.

I bought it and I like it. It's worth having.

Following Waylon in the seventies and Hank Williams Junior in the eighties, along came Travis Tritt in the nineties. The musical lineage is obvious to anybody familiar with outlaw country music, but Travis maintains the quality set by his illustrious predecessors.

This compilation, being more recent than Greatest Hits: From The Beginning covers all of his music for Warner, and also includes his first two Columbia hits, but plenty of his hits featured on the earlier compilation are also reprised here, although the lesser hits have been dropped - lesser only in the sense of their performance in the American country charts, because there were some great tracks among them, notably Put some drive in your country, which I particularly like. I'll keep the earlier compilation as well as this one.

Travis sang two main types of songs - heart wrenching ballads and hard rocking songs, both of which are well represented here.

The rocking songs include The whiskey ain't working (with Marty Stuart), Country club and Trouble, a cover of the Elvis Presley hit. Among the ballads here are Here's a quarter call someone who cares, Help me hold on and Tell me I was dreaming.

This is an excellent collection of Travis Tritt's finest songs. If you enjoy the music of Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Junior, you will enjoy this.

If you don't have any of his music and only want one compilation, I recommend this one as being stronger overall than the earlier compilation.

3 EDITED SINGLE VERSIONS, INCLUDING THE BEAUTIFUL "TELL ME I WAS DREAMING," WHICH IN ITSELF IS SACRILEGE. ADD TO THAT THE OMISSION OF "PUT SOME DRIVE IN YOUR COUNTRY," AND I'M SORRY I BOUGHT THIS. JUST ORDERED THE 1995 COMPILATION AS AN IMPORT FROM A SELLER IN FLA, WHICH HAS THE FULL-LENGTH ALBUM VERSIONS, AND "DRIVE." COULDN'T GIVE THIS ONE AWAY !!! RHINO FINALLY LET ME DOWN...

As mainstream country music goes (with a touch of Southern rock influence as well), my husband and I have always enjoyed Travis Tritt. I wanted to beef up the country segment of a CD collection I'd begun for my husband years ago, and it was a certainty Travis would be included. Since my husband has such a wide variety of musical tastes, I've leaned toward buying "greatest hits" type of CDs, which always have such a good sampling of an artist's work, and this particular CD does a super job covering his earlier work (1989-2000). The only thing I don't like is that it totally ignores his 6th album (1998's "No More Looking Over My Shoulder")... I would've hoped they'd have included at least "If I Lost You".

But with 4 songs each from 1989's "Country Club" and 1991's "It's All About to Change", 3 songs from 1992's "T-R-O-U-B-L-E", and 2 songs each from 1994's "Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof", 1996's "The Restless Kind" and 2000's "Down the Road I Go", it's a terrific representation of his music. I'd considered purchasing 1995's "Greatest Hits: From the Beginning" CD, but this one has all but a few of the songs on that CD ("Put Some Drive in Your Country", "Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof", and a cover version of The Platters' "Only You (And You Alone)". It even includes the lead-off single from the 1995 album ("Sometimes She Forgets"), as well as a couple of bonuses... his cover version of The Eagles' "Take It Easy" (that appeared on a tribute album called "Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles"), as well as a duet with Marty Stuart -"This One's Gonna Hurt You (For a Long, Long Time)", from the Stuart album with the same title. This has been such an enjoyable CD to listen to!

This CD is missing several of Tritt's recent hits -- "Strong Enough", "Country Ain't Country", "If I Lost You", "Love of a Woman" and "Modern Day Bonnie & Clyde". The collection would be more complete as a two disk set containing all of the songs from his "Greatest Hits: From the Beginning" album combined with all his newer songs.

I agree, "Put Some Drive In Your Country" and "Ten Feet Tall And Bulletproof" should have been here. Who knows what else is missing? Travis Tritt was an awesome and successful country artist--the fully-rounded, guitar-playing, song-writing kind.

Whether you want take-no-prisoners attitude, a bigger-than-life country sad song, or just some heel-kickin' fun, Travis delivers!

I am not going to go through all my favorites (that's pretty much the whole album), but here are some highlights:

1) "Great Day to Be Alive" is absolutely the most postive, inspirational song ever written! One could even call it spiritual. Sung from the point of view of a recovering alcoholic, he looks at himself in the mirror, all the bad he's done and the good, too, and looks at every day as an opportunity to start anew. The signature line, "I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes," is a very visual way of imagining that silver lining everyone's always talking about.

This is also one of the most popular live-concert singalongs of all time! The only song that beats it in this regard is Toby Keith's "Should've Been a Cowboy," during which he pretty much just becomes the audience. (And I'm talking about huge festivals with fans of every stripe, not typical concerts where they are headliners.) In short, I'd practically recommend this album for that song alone! (But you'll find TONS to LOVE here!)

2) "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" is one of the most popular line-dance songs of all time, with good reason. (A really great dance, not some country version of the electric slide like "Boot Scootin'.") Such a dance was inspired by one of the best club songs every written. Yes, you DO need to learn the lyrics!
