Top Customer Reviews
This CD actually released the year prior to his death is a fitting top hat to accentuate his long and classy career. The six new songs are all well crafted and fit in easily among the Rabbitt repertoire. The other six are remakes of Eddie's greatest hits and despite being recorded during his losing battle with lung cancer, his voice is as strong and appealing as ever on each track.
"Great Old American Town" seems to be an appropriate send off to Eddie Rabbit whose private life embodied fidelity, patriotism, and integrity-no wonder those virtues often found their way into his self-composed songs. Listening to what currently passes for country music and witnessing the shenanigans of so many who sing it, it's easy to wonder if any of these performers will leave a legacy that's even a fraction as inspiring or wholesome as Eddie Rabbitt's life and career did.
The new cuts on the CD are excellent. I especially like "Great Old American Town." The lyrics really sum up the feel & personality of a small town, filtering the most prominent aspects. Eddie Rabbitt's song writing ability has always amazed me--and he should go down in history as being one of the greatest.
Thanks for you music Eddie! You're greatly missed.
