A superb album with some of Dwight's best sounds. Turn it On, Turn it Up, Turn me Loose gets the toes tapping and the whole thing just gets better from there on in. If you like classic country, you'll like this. If you like rockabilly, you'll like this. If you just want to wallow with a broken heart, you wont like this cos it'll just cheer you up!

Dwight's music is firmly rooted in traditional country, yet makes just enough concessions to progress so that it appeals to a modern generation. I guess a few purists will ignore him, but not many - there aren't many country singers now whose music owes so much to tradition while still selling in large quantities.
This compilation picks up where his compilation of eighties hits (Just looking for a hit) ended. The tracks are almost in chronological order, beginning with tracks from 1990's wonderful If there was a way album. From that, the tracks selected are Turn it on turn it up turn me loose, You're the one, It only hurts when I cry and The heart that I own. Sadly, Send a message to my heart (a lovely duet with Patty Loveless) wasn't included.
These four songs are followed by Suspicious minds. This was originally recorded for the excellent Honeymoon in Vegas soundtrack but later released on La Croix d'amour - an album that Dwight regards as an embarrassment. No other tracks from it are included here. Next comes the first of three new (at the time) songs, Thinking about leaving, which is the only track not in chronological order.
A thousand miles from nowhere, Ain't that lonely yet, Fast as you and Pocket of a clown represents the 1992 album This time, while 1995's Gone album is represented by just two songs - Sorry you asked and Nothing. The set is completed by two more then-new recordings, I'll go back to her and his amazing cover of Crazy little thing called love - the only country cover I know of a Queen song.
Dwight could rock with the best but was equally adept at the slow songs. This is an excellent compilation of his nineties music, although there are many other great songs which didn't get included.

One of the best versions of Suspicious Minds you'll hear along with nineties hits from a man whose heart's been broken more times than his guitar strings (probably). Imagine you're driving a pick-up truck through the Californian desert night to a neon lit honky-tonk bar a hundred miles away. And prepare to be sad. Then kick your shoes off and dance around the room. No country artist's voice has Dwight's depth and no guitar is twangier. Buy it now!

I am delighted to be able to get the chance to obtain 'new' copies of past releases without searching through second hand shops.
I am very pleased with the quality and the content. For anyone who likes Dwight's material this is a must; especially "Crazy little thing called love".
