Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Producers: John Anderson, Frank Jones, Norro Wilson, Lou Bradley.
Muze PNote John Anderson's debut album, released in 1980, helped sound the death knell for the slick "Urban Cowboy" country pop that was popular at the time. As a teen, Anderson cut his teeth on the Beatles and the Stones, but when he opened his mouth, you heard Lefty and Jones. One of the first wave of "New Traditionalists," Anderson's first streak of hits lasted from 1981-83, and almost all are included on GREATEST HITS. Anderson's distinctive voice makes these songs instantly memorable, from the wistful nostalgia of "1959," to the boogie-woogie goofiness of "Chicken Truck," to the unbearable heartache of "I Just Came Home to Count the Memories."
Muze PNote Country song titles just don't get any better than "I'm Just An Old Chunk of Coal (But I'm Gonna Be A Diamond Some Day)," while "Would You Catch A Falling Star" paints a painfully realistic picture of a country singer fallen on hard times. But the highlight of the CD is the monster hit, "Swingin.'" This sweet tale of a front porch romance, made irresistible by the addition of horns, a female chorus and some rockin' guitar and organ, became the best-selling single in the history of Anderson's record company.
