Muze PNote With twenty songs (two of them newly recorded) and more than an hour of playing time, THE GREATEST HITS COLLECTION is particularly generous by Nashville standards, and it shows off how easily this blonde-haired honky-tonk hero can wear a variety of country hats. Included are a few songs from each of Jackson's four hit albums, and they range from the waltzing regret of "(Who Says) You Can't Have It All" and the stately, vintage balladry of "I'd Love You All Over Again," to the jangly country-rock of "Gone Country" and flat-out barn-burners like "Chattahoochee."
Muze PNote Jackson has a magnificent voice that registers halfway between George Jones' low drawl and Dwight Yoakam's nasally impudent twang, and he's comfortable in either of his predecessors' milieus. The proof is in the cover songs--Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" is pure Yoakam country, and "Tall, Tall Trees" is a great, early Jones/Roger Miller collaboration. But Jackson wrote most of these tunes himself, and one of his amazing achievements is that he's been able to build a formidable catalog of honky-tonk-related stuff with hardly any references to moonshine or any other kind of wet stuff. "She's Got The Rhythm (And I Got The Blues)" is the token drinking song here, and its presence only makes the absence of them in the Jackson ouevre that much clearer. He may be a slave to the honky-tonk spirit, but he's not addicted to the music's vices.

Muze PNote If it hadn't been for Garth Brooks' pop-crossover success, Alan Jackson probably would have been the male face of country music in the first half of the 1990s. Though he started off as a basic New Traditionalist ballad singer in the style of Randy Travis or George Strait, Jackson quickly developed a slightly rougher edge on honky-tonk classics like "Don't Rock the Jukebox" and "She's Got the Rhythm (And I Got the Blues)." He also shows off a taste for R&B and rockabilly classics like K.C. Douglas' "Mercury Blues" and Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues." But it was with 1994's career-defining "Gone Country" that Jackson scored his most enduring hit. A catchy but subtly damning dismissal of the "hat acts" that were flooding the Nashville scene in the wake of Garth Brooks' success, "Gone Country" states the case for country music tradition as something more than a fashion statement. This impressive 20-track summation of Jackson's first five albums is a perfect example of that stance in action.

Artist Overview

Georgia singer/songwriter Alan Jackson was a member of the legendary "Class of '89", which also included Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Travis Tritt. Among his peers Jackson stands apart because of his songwriting talent (Randy Travis and Faith Hill have had hits with his songs), and because he plays a more traditional brand of country, with a style strongly influenced by George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Hank Williams.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (11/3/95, p.66)
- "Jackson has established himself as one of country's savviest New Traditionalists, largely through a fresh approach to neo-honky-tonk, hook-laden songs, and a sly, deep-in-the-pocket sense of humor..." - Rating: A-

Q (1/96, p.152)
- 3 Stars - Good - "...one of the safest pairs of hands operating out of Nashville, with just about everything he touches turning to gold..."

Journal Of Country Music (Vol.18, Num.1, pp.52-54)
- "...traditional and cut-by-cut excellent....it is part of Jackson's talent that he makes his humility as convincing as he does the varying rhythms of his brand of country music..."
