Mac's main musical legacy is as a songwriter - one of the many songs he wrote for others was In the ghetto, a big hit for Elvis Presley in the late sixties - but he also recorded some fine music of his own. This particular compilation is made up of songs originally recorded in the early eighties. Mac wrote seven of the ten songs here.
The most famous of these songs is the tongue-in-cheek It's hard to be humble. You either love or hate this song, but in any case it's not typical of the songs here.
Let's keep it that way, one of the three songs not written by Mac, was first recorded by Anne Murray. It was the title track of one of her late seventies albums and was intended to be a single, but that plan was dropped and You needed me became the single instead. Mac eventually had a country hit with his version of Let's keep it that way.
For me, the two outstanding songs here are Hooked on music and Texas in my rear view mirror. The first is about his musical inspiration and the second is about his attempt to make the big time. Of the other songs, I particularly like Rodeo clown and the affectionate You're my bestest friend. There is also a fine cover of Rodney Crowell's Shame on the moon.
Mac Davis never made it big as a singer, but this compilation is worth a listen if you enjoy country music of the era.

Sometimes I think that Mac Davis wrote the soundtrack for my life. These songs were hits in the seventies and they are timeless classics. I've played this album for people who had never heard of Mac Davis before and had them say "Yeah, that's exactly how I felt". In my opinion this album is essential for any Country or American Pop Music collection.

Disappointed in this CD. I enjoy Mac Davis....but what is missing is his terrific song TEQUILA SHEILA.! Other songs
are good....HARD TO BE HUMBLE, SHAME ON THE MOON, MY BESTEST FRIEND.....but SHEILA well, made the
record worthwhile, and I was sorry it was not included on this CD,

All his tunes were funny, always brought a smile to my face, Tunes like it's hard to be humble ,I love this tune even today. His music takes you back to when country sounded like country, if you like Mac Davis, go and get this collection, you won't be sorry.

.... It should be "Very Best and LESS".. This aint the real deal, it's NOT a copy of the LP.. Didn't they dare to include "The Beer Drinkin' Song"...?
Cowards!
But don't get me wrong, Mac Davis is a real tunesmith!

This of course is a very old recording, but the sound is very clear and full of quality. Its great. I bought it for one of my favorite songs of his, It's Hard to be Humble. It is great.

Mac Davis was kind of having a second run of success in the '80s with these songs. After having an initial run in the 70s with I Believe In Music and Baby Dont Get Hooked On Me. It's Hard To Be Humble started this run and is the first song on the cd. My favorite song is Texas In My Rear View Mirror. Which also happens to be my favorite song by him. And it has Hooked On Music which he sounds totally different on then any thing else he ever did. When that song was out I didn't know that he was the one singing it. All the songs on here are good. And I happen to think that these songs really were the very best recordings he ever did.

Look, if you are reading this review, you probably already know all the songs on this CD. Though there are a few other songs that could be included, these got the most airplay on rock/pop stations.
For those new to Mac Davis, during his hey-day his songs might have been described as country-lite or folk-pop. Many songs were covered by other artists. He also dabbled as an actor, playing the role of a pro-quarterback in the movie "North Dallas Forty," supposedly loosely based upon real Dallas Cowboys quarterback Don Meredith.
In any event, enjoy the music.
