"Part of me thinks this has a chance to really break down some barriers, a chance to really go places that maybe I've never gotten to before," Gill says of the 43-track set, which includes collaborations with Sheryl Crow, jazz singer/pianist Diana Krall and the Everly Brothers' Phil Everly. "At the same time, my fear is that people will say, 'You know, 11 songs would've been just plenty.: interview with Vince Gill.

But 11 songs wouldn't have been just plenty. "These Days" has the makings of a landmark album. It also traces the musical history of one of country music's most versatile artists. These CD's all started with a call from Eric Clapton. He invited Vince Gill to play at one of his concerts-he said "I want the best guitar players, I know". Vince was deeply touched. He was at a point in his life when he was not sure which direction to turn- this invite gave him a new direction. This began a year of writing, gathering the best musicians, singing and pickin' the songs and putting this 4 CD together. Would 11 songs be best? No, how to choose which songs and how to put them together. The answers came slowly but surely, A 4 CD set was the answer, Never been done before and may never be done again, but it was the chance of a lifetime. 43 all new songs written and sung by Vince Gill and some of his best friends.

In the end the 4 sets of discs came together more easily than anyone thought.

The first disc known as the "Rockin' Record- Workin" On A Big Chill" and loud guitar, This set contains ten songs that all rock- Several duets- Rodney Crowell and "Nothin' For A Broken Heart" my favorite of disc one, but all are fast guitar playin', stompin and had clappin set.

This 4 CD set is Vince Gill at his best! 43 brand new songs on one collection with a list of guest artists that would astound anyone! 4 distinct styles of music bundled neatly into what will easily become his finest work to date! Already a favorite among critics and fans alike, this compilation shows that Vince can still be that triple threat in music: singer, songwriter, and musician.

There are too many songs that truly stand out to name them all here. CD#1 known as "The Rockin' Record" features up-tempo music and proves that Vince is not just a balladeer. Filled with great guitar solos and crisp clean vocals it is sure to please the ears and get the feet tapping to some good old country soul (and blues). "Love's Standin", which I believe is set to be the second single, is very remnicent of Vince in the early 90's. More importantly this CD stretches his artistic wings to a style that fits Vince perfectly and leaves the listener with a smile.

CD#2 known as "The Groovy Record" features the first single, "The Reason Why", a smooth beautiful ballad like only Vince can do with a touch of old-time piano to add the heart and soul of the song. Also featured on this section is one of Vince's finest songs to date, "Everything and Nothing". This song will move you with his high tenor voice soaring the melody to where only Vince can take it! "What You Give Away" is another powerful song backed by a choir that will amaze you at what Vince has been able to accomplish on this record.

CD#3, "The Country and Western Record" is all about country music at its finest. It's honky tonk, it's country swing-- everything country music has been about for the last 40 years. You'll feel like you took a step back in time while at the same time having a fresh modern sound.

Everything good about this great collection is listed below. I just want to add another five stars to a ten star collection. When Vince announced this collection at the Bluegrass at the Ryman series, this summer, I thought I know I will like the country and acoustic disc, but I was not sure about the others. I figured they would be ok. Wrong! Vince could probably, I hope not, do hip-hop and make it sound good.

I recently had the pleasure of listening to Vince and his group of musician buddies perform many tracks off this album at the beautiful Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan. As any fan knows, nothing beats a LIVE performace from the Vinster, but this album does a great job of embodying everything that is Vince Gill. The man is like some kind of musician superhero.

Do yourself a favor. Turn off the radio, buy this album, and discover true talent!

I admit I am a huge Vine Gill fan, and this CD set is his best ever!! I cannot add much to the other reviews. This set showcases Vince's talents and gifts as a songwriter, musician, singer, performer and arranger. He brings out the very best in every other singer and musician. If you do not already love Vince Gill, you will after you listen to these amazing CD's.

Not many albums make a listener stop in his tracks and sit still for three hours, all the while marveling at the album's remarkable songwriting, impeccable musicianship, and strong production. This is one. Any one of the four albums in the set would be considered excellent, but to put four of them back to back and release them in one set for a bargain basement price makes a music listener smile and say that good things can still happen in the industry.

Others here already have reviewed the different albums and songs. Some songs are very good, some are excellent, and some are transcendent. Not a single one is filler.

For readers who are wondering if ponying up $30 for four albums is worth it ("Will I really want to listen to all four albums?" What if I don't like some?"), well, I had those doubts too and I am very glad I clicked Amazon's "confirm purchase" button. I will be enjoying this album for years.
