THE CD IS GREAT AND IS A TRUE EXAMPLE OF TOTAL AND UNMISTAKEABLE TALENT. MY MOST PERSONAL FAVORITE SONG IS "WIND BENEATH MY WINGS". I LOVE HIS ORIGINAL VERSION OF THIS ROMANTIC LOVE SONG. I AM WAITING FOR MORE FROM THIS SUPER-STAR.

Really enjoyed the CD. The song 'Wind Beneath My Wings' by Gary is the best version yet. I bought the CD for that special song, but enjoyed the entire CD.

I ordered this record primarily to hear Gary Morris sing "Wind Beneath My Wings". In my opinion his rendition of that song puts all others to shame. But all of the selections on this record are great. I copied it to a CD so I can listen to it in more locations, not just at my record player.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Gary Morris live when he still performed and toured and was blown away both times by his incredible voice. I have also had the good fortune of hearing him sing Opera as well and he is equally as impressive in that genre as well. He has a rare voice that is so powerful and yet tender, always makes me cry because he packs so much power and passion into every note and lyric. Any album that he has done is worth getting and that includes his beautiful Christmas albums one on which his amazing Son performs with equal talent. All of his albums are done with perfection and precision!

This album yielded several classic hits for Gary including the title track, which is a brilliant up-tempo song, but the outstanding track here is, of course, Wind beneath my wings. First recorded officially by Roger Whittaker, but beginning life in the charts as an R+B song and recorded by Gladys Knight among others, Gary's pop-country cover was the first version to really hit big. It became a country top five hit, but the timing was unlucky in that it came up against some other great songs including Islands in the stream. At a different time, it could easily have made number one. Gary's version wasn't released in Britain, where a Lee Greenwood cover made the pop charts a few months later. A few years later, Bette Midler was much more successful than Gary, Lee or anybody else had ever been with the song, scoring a major international pop hit with the song. I love those versions and the others that I've heard, especially Willie Nelson's cover, but none of the other versions actually improves on Gary's recording.

Another wonderful ballad (The love she found in me) and a great mid-tempo song (Velvet chains) also became big country hits. Together with the title track and Wind beneath my wings, they can be found on Gary's hits compilations. Mama you can't give me no whipping, a great up-tempo song about coming of age, is my favorite among the remainder, but the other tracks (I can feel the fire going out, Runaway hearts, I'd be the first to fall in love again, The way I love you tonight, Again) are all well worth a listen.

This album was widely available in America in its original vinyl and cassette formats and later on CD. It is still available on CD, but only from one source. I'll leave you to find it for yourself if you want the CD version badly enough.

. Sort of sounds like a studio production just to cut a cd. Too bad, Gary has one of the finest voices I have ever heard. A multitalented individual who could easily acheived a much greater position in the public music world.

That is how long I have loved this album. You will not be disappointed. Gary did "Wings" way before Bette did.. He has trained as a classical voice...and BOY does it show.

If you love country, you will be amazed at how good country can be.

WHY LADY WHY is Morris' second album and launched the singer's country music career.
Of course, WIND BENEATH MY WINGS was the phenomenously successful single that won Gary critical and popular acclaim, and remains the best version of the unfortunately overexposed song (I dislike Bette Midler's more commercially successful rendition). Along with WIND are some other beautiful songs: the passionate AGAIN, my personal favorite; I'D BE THE FIRST TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN; the emotional THE LOVE SHE FOUND ME are all sterling vocal performances. WHY LADY WHY and MAMA YOU CANT GIVE ME NO WHIPPIN are the best up-tempo tracks.
Gary Morris has an incredible voice and can sing anything. This album is not his most satisfying effort but it is a good representation of his significant talent.
