Any man or woman can relate to a Patty Loveless song. Whether it's struggling over a broken relationship, finding true love or just having a good time, there's something in Loveless' catalogue that will touch just about anybody's heart. This compilation, which focuses primarily on her work with MCA, is presented in chronological order from her "Lonely Days, Lonely Nights" single to two Epic label releases (and number one tunes), "You Can Feel Bad" and "Lonely Too Long." There are some nice liner notes by Robyn Flans and a few pics of Loveless from throughout her career.
Loveless has a unique voice that can burn like a fire on twangy tunes like "Chains," channel Patsy Cline on wailers like "Don't Toss Us Away" and even sound like it's crying on songs such as "If My Heart Had Windows." This compilation features all of those hits as well as the popular "I'm That Kind Of Girl," "The Blue Side Of Town" and "Hurt Me Bad (In A Real Good Way)."
With twenty-two tracks burned into it, this disc is a great find for fans of Loveless who don't have all of her albums. It's also a great way to introduce a new fan to Loveless' wonderful sound. Casual fans will also benefit from this album since it does include all of her biggest MCA hits. It's an all around excellent album, period. Go out and get a copy if you don't have one yet.
