Number 1's

Despite the frequency with which album titles like Number 1's appear among record releases (this one is part of an entire series by that name), most recording artists don't have enough chart-topping singles to fill such a collection. Conway Twitty, however, has the opposite problem. Until 2006, when he was outdistanced by George Strait, Twitty held the record for the most number one singles on the Billboard country chart at 40. Since this 25-track collection begins with his sole pop chart-topper, "It's Only Make Believe," that leaves room for only 24 of those 40. That means even consisting solely of songs that hit the summit, this album is liable to disappoint a few Twitty fans who will object to the omission of one or the other of the remaining sixteen. (Notably, MCA Nashville has taken the trouble to make this a more-than-one-record-label set by licensing four of Twitty's hits from his days at Elektra and Warner Bros.). But that simply means that there should be a second volume, which could even toss in some of Twitty's number two hits for filler.

I admit that the main reason why I gave listening to this compilation a chance is because Conway Twitty was one of my foster mother's favorite country artists when she was still alive. Mother's Day is coming up, and listening to this compilation is another therapeutic collection for me to listen to when I prefer to her memory in a more joyful way (through my love of music). I am very glad that I took a chance on this collection. All of the songs in this compilation are worth listening to, and now I can understand even more why my foster mother enjoyed listening to Conway Twitty. Her name was Linda, and I find it very amusing that one of his songs (which is great by the way) is "Linda On My Mind". The following are some of my other personal favorite songs from this compilation: 1)"Hello Darlin" 2)"I'd Just Love to Lay You Down" 3)"Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man" This greatest hits compilation by Conway Twitty is recommended to purchase if you are open to listening to 80's country music.
