I remember being totally enthralled by Don Williams while growing up; an outstanding performer. He is an artist easily overlooked, yet when you look at the songs he has released, you cannot help but to be floored. In an era when Kenny & Dolly were singing about "Islands in the Stream" over keyboards and synthesizers, and the suburban elite were donning cowboy hats because John Travolta made them "cool", Don Williams was still standing motionless and delivering straight froward, no-nonsense, country music. And where did he ever get that voice???? Only Johnny Cash and Dave Dudley had deeper voices. This collection is all-inclusive and includes not only the signatures "Amanda" and "Tulsa Time", but also offers a few lesser known gems, such as: "Nobody But You" and "The ties that Bind". Best of all, these are the original recordings....not a compilation of newly recorded original songs by an aging artist. A very good album by an artist with real class.
