By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Mick Foster and Tony Allen have always loved country music so it is no surprise to find that they have recorded plenty of country songs during their career, though they have alway done them in their own particular easy listening style. So a lot of country music fans may not necessarily like what is on offer here, but I love it because I consider myself a Foster and Allen fan as well as a country music fan. If I want to listen to bona-fide country versions of these songs, I can do so (well, in most cases) but there are other times when I'm in the mood for a different sound and that's where this album comes in.

Most of the songs began life as country songs but even those that didn't (such as Wand'rin' star) fit in well. Wand'rin' star originated in thirties Hollywood and was famously revived by Lee Marvin in the seventies. As I write this, I cannot find any evidence of the song ever having been recorded by a country singer but I don't mind because it sounds as if it could have been.

There goes my everything (originally recorded by country singer Jack Greene) became more famous as a pop song after Engelbert Humperdinck covered it. Elvis Presley and plenty of others have further popularized the song. Other famous songs, with original artists in brackets, include Devil woman (Marty Robbins), Distant drums (first recorded by Roy Orbison but made famous via Jim Reeves' version), Jambalaya (Hank Williams), You're my best friend (Don Williams) and Lucille (Kenny Rogers). Country music fans will recognize a few other tracks besides these.

If you enjoy the easy listening of Foster and Allen, you are likely to enjoy this album. I slightly prefer another Foster and Allen compilation of mainly country songs (Back home again) but there is no overlap between the two (though there is some overlap with other compilations) so you could buy them both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foster and Allen 5 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
For those are you who are into Foster and Allen Irish music. You have to buy the Foster and Allen - The country Collection. I only braught the C.D Of Them today. Foster and Allen have got loads of C.Ds out such as

1. Foster and Allen sing the Number ones

2. Foster and Allen - By Special Request

3. Foster and Allen - At The Movies.

The C.D is really good to listen to.

Note that this was released in Britain as a budget album. Do not pay over the odds for it.
