Greatest Hits: Kenny Rogers CD-ROM

As an adult, I have an even greater appreciation of the songs included on this album. She Believes in Me is one of those rare ballads that speaks directly to your heart; it's a great tribute to all the women who put up with all of us men who don't deserve their love. A man doesn't want to admit he needs anything or anybody, but the love and trust of a good woman means much more than most men would ever admit. Just ask the husband of Lucille, who finds himself trying to raise four children by himself after his wife picks "a fine time to leave" him. You Decorated My Life is a beautiful homage to the miraculous life-giving power of love, and Love the World Away works the same kind of wonders. Lady, of course, is one of the greatest love songs ever recorded.
Story songs were one of Kenny Rogers' greatest strengths.Read more ›
Apart from Lady, this album featured one other new song, Long arm of the law, which is actually a fun song about a relationship. Unlike most of the other tracks here, which turn up frequently on compilations of Kenny's music, some more so than others, this one only turns up occasionally. Of the other tracks, Love the world away, which was a huge American hit for Kenny, first appeared on album on the Urban cowboy soundtrack. Like Lady and Long arm of the law, it never appeared on an original Kenny Rogers album. Every time two fools collide, a duet with Dottie West, was the title track to one of their duet albums.
Two songs that were originally successful for Kenny as lead singer of the First Edition (Ruby don't take your love to tow, Reuben James) are included here, but they aren't the original versions. They are among five re-recordings that Kenny did especially for his earlier American compilation, Ten years of gold, which was later repackaged with extra tracks for the British market and re-titled Singles. If you want the originals, you have to buy a First Edition compilation (unless you buy the 4-CD boxed set of Kenny`s music, which as far as I know is the only compilation featuring both First Edition and solo tracks).Read more ›
