Format: Audio CD
In 1985, Ronnie Milsap released his second greatest hits album that included a sparkling new doo-wop ballad that captured the authentic sound and feel of the 1950's with a great saxaphone solo and rich backing vocals {not to mention one of Ronnie's greatest vocal performances ever}. "Lost in the 50's tonight" shot straight to number one on the country charts and won a couple of grammies for Milsap, quickly becoming one of the most popular singles of his career.

Ronnie included the song in his next album the following year. Lost in the 50's tonight is a strong album that is among his very best, and it contains three other number one hits besides the title song. "How do I turn you on" and "In Love" are two singles with a strong pop/rock feel that topped the country charts, and "Happy Happy birthday baby" is another oldie from the 50's that Milsap took to number one as well. Also included is a top-notch version of "I heard it through the Grapevine" that is every bit as good or better than the classic original.

"Money {that's what I want}" is a fabulous, live in the studio jam that proves Ronnie Milsap can rock as well as any singer alive!! This track is Milsap's most spirited studio recording that should be treasured by every rock n' roll fan. Ronnie is having the time of his life as he and the band rock their butts off from start to finish in this truly dynamic performance that is worth the price of the CD alone! Milsap's guitarist Bruce Dees plays a searing solo and Ronnie lets his childhood friend Jay Spell deliver a rockin' piano solo that would make Jerry Lee Lewis proud.

Lost in the 50's tonight rightfully earned a gold record for Milsap and also won "Album of the Year" at the Country Music awards in 1986. It is among his most enjoyable and successful albums, and a great choice for anyone looking to dig deeper into Ronnie Milsap's music beyond the numerous hits compilations. You can't go wrong with this one.

I bought this CD for my Mom, she had been talking about one song in particular that she always loved but hadn't been able to find it. She was very pleased to receive this. I rated it "okay" because I thought it was pricey, but I figured for my Mom, price is no object!

Ronnie Milsap is one of those singers that has had hit after hit. The only albums that I have by him that are not Greatest Hits. Are Only One Love and this. His voice and his style always sort of reminded me of Glen Campbell. And I am a huge Campbell fan. So I just never did buy that much by Ronnie Milsap.
This is a pretty good cd. Lost In The Fifties was on his Greatest Hits Vol 2 which was his album before this one. And at the time it was a new song. And it turned out to be such a big song they re released it as the title track to this. To tell the truth for it to be as big as it was. I didn't like it that much. I've never been real crazy about the do-wop kind of songs.
I was 25 or so when this came out and I didn't know that In The Still Of The Night was a real song. In Love is the next song on the cd. It was a big song as well. And my favorite song on the cd. He does a very good version of Heard It Through The Grapevine. How Do I Turn You On I think was another hit. And it and Happy Happy Birthday Baby was also. And they both remind of the kind of songs Conway Twitty would do. This won album of the year. So it was big and a lot of people bought it. And if you want more then just his Greatest Hits albums. This is as good as anything.

Ronnie Milsap's vocals are exemplary. Dynamic, articulate, soulful and smooth. A reference recording for any vocalist or musician. 50s sure, but timeless!
