EDITORS’ NOTES

On his 1986 debut, Randy Travis brought that buttery baritone of his to a batch of timeless-sounding new tunes that could just as easily have been recorded 25 years earlier, renewing listeners' faith in classic country musical values. On neo-trad standards-in-the-making, like the marriage-minded anti-cheating song "On the Other Hand," the hard-living lament "The Storms of Life," and the steady-rolling ode to the roadhouse life "There'll Always Be a Honky Tonk Somewhere," Travis embodies the emotional intensity inherent in early country themes.

Simply a classic....

This is one of the fifty best country records ever recorded. You can't begrudge some of the new folks their fame, but when it comes to the real deal, Randy Travis stands alongside greats like Hank Williams and George Jones as one of the finest voices and stylizers to ever put their talent down in recorded vinyl. Get this for your record collection now.

Classic Randy Travis

I remeber listening to this album when it came out and I love it just as much now as I did then. These works are an excelent example of what Country Music is supposed to sound like with the hallmark "twang" of a steel guitar. Randy's vocals are clear and soulful which helps to set the tone of each song. If you are a Randy Travis fan and have never listened to this album or if you are just a fan of tride and true Country Music this is the perfect addition to your music library.

Great album

My grandma had this on cassette when I was a kid and I always thought it was one of the best tapes in her large collection. Every song is a winner.
