Maria Muldaur begins the tracks set with her hit entitled "Midnight At The Oasis." "Midnight At The Oasis" has a romantic, attractive melody that catches your attention and never lets it go. Maria sings this with a lot of sensitivity and that's probably a big reason why this song went so far the way it did in the `70s. The guitars work well and the percussion adds to the beauty of the number--awesome! Jim Stafford follows with another hit entitled "My Girl Bill." "My Girl Bill" hints at an alternative lifestyle--before turning into a song about two men who both love the same woman! I think "My Girl Bill" is very neatly done and I really like that number.
Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods turn in a bubblegum flavored anti-war song with "Billy, Don't Be A Hero;" this tune has a great melody as well. The guitars and percussion enhance the natural beauty of the song, too. Listen also for Paper Lace doing "The Night Chicago Died." The singing and percussion marking the beat stuns me with its creativity and good sound; and they play and sing "The Night Chicago Died" to perfection.
Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods return for another awesome hit--in my opinion--that they called "Who Do You Think You Are." "Who Do You Think You Are" sounds great and this is clearly a highlight of this album. Andy Kim also does a great job on "Rock Me Gently;" Andy sings this flawlessly with ladies doing backup harmonizing; and the guitar arrangement makes this number shine! First Class also does "Beach Baby.Read more ›
Bill Stafford adds the sniggery cross-over hit "My Girl Bill" and Maria Muldaur goes one step further with the very suggestive "Midnight at the Oasis."
In fact, Volume 13 is so strong that Wet Willie's "Keep on Smilin'" and Reunion's "Life is a Rock" are the weakest cuts offered. For this series, that's going some.
If you're only going to take a couple Volumes from the set, this has got to be one of them. A legitimate five-star collection, Volume 13 is highly recommended.

What memories. Will take a very long time to listen to all 25 CD's that I ordered to get the entire set. Looking forward to hearing them though and "remembering when". Read morePublished on October 22, 2013 by MedicRLY
