I honestly enjoyed this "country" set of BJ's greatest hits.
He also sings a lot of the classics, in his own style, making them sound fresh and new- but not contemporary (Thank God!)- he stays true to the spirit of the originals, making them uniquely his, without adding synthesizers and updated arrangements. A fine line he walks just right!
Sometimes BJ can reach for notes a little out of his range resulting in an awkward thinness in his voice. Not here. His rich barritone is in abudance throughout- I think we can thank his producers for that.
Song selection is phenomenal and BJ really delivers!
Best I've ever heard from Mr. Thomas. Two Thums Up!

B.J. Thomas probably has more "greatest hits"compilations than any other artist on this plannet! And one of thebiggest problems is, a lot of his "hits" are re-recorded. There's also the BIG problem of the same songs being duplicated from compilation to compilation. Not so in this marvelous collection. I really don't know where else you can get a lot of the country classics included on this disk. The tracks were all licensed from Columbia and highlight his years on the label as a country hitmaker. The albums these tracks were culled from have long been out of print, and the other collections have not been able to access licensing. (Or maybe it was too expensive.) And for some reason, many of these songs, Bj has not chosen to re-record. There's no filler here. Every track is either a bona fide hit or a classic album track. B.J. has never been in better voice. This collection is well worth the price. Highlights include "Whatever Happened To Old Fashioned Love", "Two Car Garage" and "Night Life". Excellent liner notes as well. I always enjoy reading about what I'm hearing, as knowing the history behind the recording always enhances the listening experience for me a lot. Perfect music to cuddle up with, or go to sleep by, too! (That's a compliment, by the way) I highly recommend this Cd.

The only Cd That was Available that Features his 80s Country Hits And Album Tracks From His out of Print Albums of the 80s. The years 1983 - 1984. -1985 - 1986. This has the Hard to find hits " The Whole Worlds In Love When Your Lonely" and "The Girl Most Likely To" And "The Part of Me That Needs You Most 85, " All Country pop style 80s. It Has songs From The 1986 Night Life" Album and The Single "Night Life" As long As We Got Each Other" From 1989 Midnight Minute album, The Title Track The Great American Dream" From the 1983 American Dream Album" that Features Two Car Garage" Sadly This Great Collection is Out Of Print. You must Get it Used but You Will Pay Around 30.00 like I did. But Well worth it. You could Get his "Wind Beneath my Wings Cd That has some of his 80s Country Hits and Album Tracks from his 80s Albums for under 20.00 used check The Different Sellers. But this Is the most Complete Collection.
