Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Assembled and released shortly after Keith Whitley's death, Greatest Hits contains nine of his biggest songs -- including the Top Ten singles "Ten Feet Away," "Don't Close Your Eyes," "When You Say Nothing at All," "I'm No Stranger to the Rain," "I Wonder Do You Think of Me," "It Ain't Nothing," and "I'm Over You" -- plus two unreleased songs: a duet with wife Lorrie Morgan on "'Til a Tear Becomes a Rose" and a demo of "Tell Lorrie I Love Her."

Granted, those are his two best albums, but it would have been nice to have collected highlights from his first two uneven solo records. Nevertheless, Greatest Hits is a fine last will and testament to a tremendously gifted artist who set a template for contemporary country, even as he was faithful to its long history and lineage.
