Guide Review - Conway Twitty - 25 Number Ones

This album took me back to my childhood; my parents always had Conway on the stereo at home while I was growing up and I remember all of the songs on this album. Especially "Hello Darlin" and "Touch The Hand." And of course I remember the Duets with the honky tonk woman herself, Loretta Lynn. There are five of them on this album, but my favorite is "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man."

These are his biggest hits from all the labels he recorded for. He had 55 #1 hit records on pop and country charts. The Beatles and Elvis, not even Frank Sinatra did that. Conway was inspired by and modeled himself after Elvis Presley and took on that kind of rockabilly cat style with "It's Only Make Believe," which became a #1 pop hit that made him a household name. Throughout his career, he has touched every popular musical category: rockabilly, blues, rock'n'roll, Dixieland, R&B, gospel and mainstream country. Not many artists can say they've done that.

"You've Never Been This Far Before" was a song that was banned from some radio stations for some of the lines in the song. "I See The Want In Your Eyes," "Don't Take It Away," and "Tight Fittin' Jeans." are songs that will be remembered for a very long time in country music.

If this kind of music has made memories in your life as it has mine, it's a great one to add to any country music collection. I sure miss his incredible voice in today's country music. Thanks for the many memories you gave me Conway.
