Back in the 70's when we headed out to cruise the streets ofOklahoma City in the Z-28, the first thing we did was put in my copyof Dwight Twilley's "Sincerely" album in the 8-Track. Whenthat first song "I'm on Fire" came on, we were ready for thestreets. All those other Hot Rods had their ... blaring out of theirspeakers with their mindless rock and ... singing, while welistened to the perfect pop and great voice of the kid from Tulsa, andwe were proud of it. And the women loved it too. And that's all thatreally counted to us back then. Well, I bought the upgraded CD versionof "Sincerely" a couple years ago, and now I've got the restof Twilley's old stuff with this Greatest Hits CD. The first few songson here are from his first 3 albums that I had on vinyl. All great andmemorable tunes. But you get so much more here from a guy whose carrerhas quietly moved along without anybody ever taking notice of thisgreat lost talent. Songs like "Sky Blue", "10,000American Scuba Divers", "Girls", "I'm OnFire", or "Looking For The Magic" would easily make mytop 40 if I was a DJ spinning records. But in the real world thisartist was criminally overlooked. Even the song "That Thing YouDo", which Twilley recorded hoping it would make it in Tom Hanksmovie of the same name, was passed over for an inferior song. I guessthat's just par for the course for Dwight Twilley. I highly recommendnot passing up this fine Greatest Hits CD. I think I'll head out andtry this Greatest Hits CD in the car stereo. Man, cruisin' never getsold when you have the fresh pop of Dwight Twilley ridin' with ya. END

This essentially "Best Of" CD from Dwight Twilley is a delight from beginning to end. Though most of songs were written in the 70's (the last 2 were written in 1996) they have held up incredibly well. They fall squarely in the pop vein, hook-filled with Beatlesque chord changes and Byrd-like harmonies and jangly guitars. Some standouts include "I'm on Fire" (with one of the most infectious chorus's I've heard), "Out of My Hands" with it's full orchestral backing, and "10,000 American Scuba Divers Dancing (every bit as infectious as "I'm on Fire". One of the new songs "Grey Buildings" is simply magnificent. It makes you wonder why we're not hearing more from him today. If you like retro music like that from Kula Shaker (Pigs, Peasants and Astronauts is one of the best CD's of the last decade), love harmonies, musical hooks and don't mind humming and whistling songs that stay in your head all day, give this one a try. You won't regret it.

Dwight Twilley has always been one of those artists that everyone expected to rocket to stardom. He bounced across four major labels, yet only two were ever able to break a single by Twilley into the top 40 (only one better than his former bandmate, Phil Seymour). In that period of 1979 to 1995, Twilley recorded so many should have been hits that "XXI" plays out almost as a singularly recorded album. The power pop hooks, the swinging guitar and Twilley's vocal style remain timeless, hits or not.

Twilley's two big records, "I'm On Fire" (1976) and "Girls" (1984), but struggled to get heard throughout his career. His sole album for Arista in 1979 had the Tom Petty meets the Beatles single "Out Of My Hands" (and the B-Side was an incredible live version of "Money - That's What I Want" that should have been here). Since Petty and Twilley were friends from their Shelter Records days (Twilley is in the background of Petty's debut), Petty gave Twilley some payback on the album "Jungle." That great chorus vocal helped Twilley get only his second top 100 album, the other being the Twilley Band's "Twilley Don't Mind." "Little Bit of Love" should have been a contender, as it had the same kind of longing vocal and a killer hook. But from there on out, Dwight Twilley kept making albums that seemingly disappeared on release. You still can't get "Jungle" or "Wild Dogs" on CD.

So this CD, also ridiculously out of print, is the only place you'll find such gems as "Shooting Stars" or "Why You Wanna Break My Heart" (eventually earning Twilley some excellent royalties when it was covered by actress Tia Carrere in the chart topping soundtrack to "Wayne's World").

I'm sittin' listening to "looking for the Magic," and it is sooo good. The entire power pop seems to get swept aside as some trifle. Bands like The Motors were incredibly swingin'. I don't think there's a bad song on this disc. The Brits got it right with Bram Tskovsky, Ducks Deluxe, Mongo Jerry, The Tyla Gang, Dave Edmunds, Rockpile and Nick Lowe. I like to sing in the shower.

To me, a great greatest hits CD is one that keeps me out of the basement pulling out my old LP's. This one was close, but where is You Were So Warm?!? How could anyone think a Dwight Twilley CD could be complete without this power pop classic!!! If you like Mathew Sweet, you will love Twilley.
