With so many singers around these days, it is rare to find one that is truly distinctive, but Vince's superb tenor voice is unlike any other in country music. This collection covers the period from 1990 to 1993, when he was at the peak of his career. Actually, his peak lasted a little longer - one more album (When love finds you), after which Vince continued to make great albums without ever achieving the same level of success.
The first three tracks, Never alone, Never knew lonely and When I call your name are taken from his first MCA album, When I call your name. It is still my favorite original album of Vince's music. A big disappointment for me is the omission of Oklahoma swing, a duet with Reba McEntire that was a top five country hit - big enough to qualify for this collection.
Those three tracks are followed by four tracks from Vince's second MCA album, Pocket full of gold, another brilliant album. Then comes a duet with Reba, The heart won't lie. It was originally released on Reba's album, It's your call, but not on any of Vince's original albums. It is a wonderful song, even if I still prefer their earlier duet.
Next come five tracks from Vince's third MCA album, I still believe in you. Some say that was his best original album and it's not difficult to see why. Actually, there's not much to choose between all Vince's albums - they were all of a consistently high quality.
Completing this outstanding collection are I can't tell you why, a song that Vince recorded for the Eagles tribute album Common thread, and I will always love you, a duet with Dolly that first appeared on her Something special album.

As an introduction to one of country music's most talented stars this collection is first rate. It effectively highlights his versatility as a singer, writer, guitar picker and interpreter. He is convincing no matter what he is doing. From the bouncy country rock of 'Liza Jane' to the heart break of 'Take Your Memory With You' and the gutsy duet with Reba McEntire 'The Heart Wont Lie' there is much to enjoy here.

Vince is essentially a country -pop artist. This is reflected in the overly glossy production job that many of these tracks receive, and though he emerges from all the slickness triumphant, the occasional injection of grit would add a welcome aspect to his sound. That said Vince is the genuine thing. His vocals on tracks like 'Tryin' To Get Over You' and the absolutely stunning duet with Dolly Parton are proof if any were needed that Mr Gill is a performer of substance. He is has a great voice for love gone wrong, lonesome, missing someone, kinda songs. And if you have ever felt like that then Vince has a song for you. Recommended.

I ordered this album because I wanted to have two of the tracks on it - however I have found a rekindled affection for several other tracks too - so very pleased I decided to buy

The CD arrived a few days later than Amazon had stated but this is probably due to the fact that I live outside the UK. The CD quality is excellent and I am very happy with it.

Great singer, great album. All his best work up to the date. Good mix of ballads and up tempo stuff to keep you singing along, as long (as in my case) no one else can here you.
