Format: Audio CD
Vince became a major country star because of his first MCA album, When I call your name, and the singles from it. His career before then was one of slow but steady progress, beginning with Boone Creek (a bluegrass group that also featured Ricky Skaggs) then Pure Prairie League (a country rock group). The RCA recordings he made during the eighties showed promise of what was to come, yielding several major country hits. Vince wrote or co-wrote most of his own songs but occasionally recorded outside songs.
Apart from his duet with Rosanne Cash (If it weren't for him), all his essential recordings from this period of his career are included, notably Victim of life's circumstances, Turn me loose, Oh Carolina, Oklahoma borderline and Cinderella. One song that wasn't released during this time (Never knew lonely) should have been – Vince re-recorded it for MCA and had a huge country hit with it.
This collection contains plenty of variety, which some songs that really rock, some heartfelt ballads and the occasional nod to his roots in bluegrass. His then-wife was one-half of Sweethearts of the Rodeo, who had much greater success. Their success was the inspiration for a couple of the songs here (Everybody's sweetheart, The radio) and may have indicated that their marriage was in trouble - they eventually divorced but not as soon as these songs might suggest.
Several collections of Vince's RCA music have been released since his success with MCA but this is by far the best – however, if you particularly want that duet with Rosanne Cash, you can find it on Platinum and gold collection, which has fewer tracks overall. If you enjoy his more famous MCA music, this is definitely worth a listen.

Vince Gill has an exceptionally good voice and I think that is best displayed on the slower tracks.
He really comes into his own on the soulful ballads such as "Aint it always that way", "The way back home","Colder than the Winter" and "Never knew lonely."
There are a mixture of songs from country rock to mid-tempo and slow songs.
There are a couple of tracks that I would say are listenable but a bit average, but I reckon thats not bad going for any C.D. and its definitely worth its bargain price.
I first heard Vince Gill on an album "Long journey home" where he sang "The streets of Laredo" and I was completely moved by his incredibly strong, smooth-as-honey and soulful voice. This guy can stir emotions with his voice, a bit like Roy Orbison does.
I rate him among the great singers.
This was the first album of his I have bought by Vince Gill but I intend to buy some more.

the CD is very good and excellent value for money. but the only fault I found is there is no listing of band personnel.
it is a great shame because the recording dates are listed
