Another thing is the album is ballad heavy. It has it's share of up-tempo numbers but by and large 97% of the material are ballads. Three songs altogether pick up the pace. The first, "Don't Call Him a Cowboy", became the 50th single of his career to reach a #1 position in the music charts. It's a cute sing-a-long about a guy who tries to impress a woman by dressing up like a cowboy but as Conway explains in a clever sort of way, the clothes don't make the man. I have him on video singing this song and he chuckles during the "...and if he ain't good in the saddle, lord, you won't be satisfied..." line. I've always liked the song from the moment I heard it. It also serves as a put-down on the Urban Cowboy movement that was in it's dying days in country music.
The second up-tempo song is "Whichever One Comes First", track #5. It's not exactly a bonafide up-tempo song like "Don't Call Him a Cowboy" but it has it's up-tempo moments to prevent it from being a ballad. I assume one would refer to that type of delivery as mid-tempo.
Anyway, "Whichever One Comes First" is about a woman who hopes that the man she's met will be the right one and wonders if her affection for him will last forever or just until the next morning.
The third up-tempo song on the album is "Between Her Blue Eyes and Jeans", track number 3 and the second single from the album.Read more ›

Conway Twitty knew a good song when he heard it, and this album proves it. Several songs on this album are not only good by him, but later became BIG time hits for other artists.Published 16 months ago by Chris
There are very few albums of Conway's that I don't like. This is a must have for your collection. A great starter album if you're just checking him out. Interesting bit of trivia. Read morePublished 23 months ago by a sanchez
