This selection of songs from Lovett's first two albums had a Texas swing and country sound. If you are looking the big band or gospel sounds from a bit later, you will not find them here. The musicianship and the sound are impeccable. The flaw with this collection is Lyle's ironic tone. It works on songs like If I Had A Boat. However, on the murder-revenge ballad LA County the listener is left to wonder how such a cynical guy could become so enraged at his ex-lover and her fiancee that he would follow them to California and gun them down at the altar. Lovett would move further away from straight country as time went on. This is valuable as a look at his early roots.

This is a great compilation of classic Lovett with two great new songs. His backup singers are among the finest in this genre.

This is an absolutely wonderful album. Every selection is excellent, and a fan who was not familiar with Lovett's work from 80's is in for a real treat. Go Lyle, you are THE MAN.

This is a wonderful collection of Lyle; it doesn't get much better than this. I particularly like ''Farther Down the Line'' if I had to pick a favorite on the CD. I highly recommend this CD to any country music fan. It's the best!
