This review is from: Ultimate Ronnie Milsap (Audio CD)
This is an excellent disc for anyone wanting the bulk of Ronnie Milsap's hits. Granted, many songs are left off, but what is contained here is a great collection for folks just starting to listen to Milsap and for longtime fans who want something to throw on that plays consistent hit after hit. Milsap was an honest crossover country and AC star who didn't compromise his sound in the hopes to make more money like most contemporary country stars do these days (Faith Hill, Mr. Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, etc.). Instead, Milsap managed to craft together songs that were at times hardcore honky-tonk and at other times pure love songs. Also, throw in the fact that Milsap was blind and probably the best piano player of his day and you have to give him credit for his accomplishments.
This set includes the wonderful "Pure Love," "Daydreams About Night Things," and "I Wouldn't Have Missed It For The World." My personal favorites are "Stranger In My House" and "Smoky Mountain Rain." Other grand hits included are "My Heart" and "He Got You."
While there are other, more complete collections of Milsap's work out there, this compilation is perfect for folks on a budget or casual fans unwilling to unload big money on a collection of songs. Highly recommended.
