5.0 out of 5 stars A Classy Man's Final Album June 27 2000
Format:Audio CD
One of modern country music's many shameful events occurred slightly over two years ago when Eddie Rabbitt's untimely death received sporadic attention. Well past his 40th birthday, he (like all of his talented contemporaries)had long been banished from the radio in favor of Nashville's Generation X rockers; most of whom were listening to Rod Stewart or Deborah Harry when Eddie was dominant on the real country stations of the 70s and 80s.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rabbit April 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
My appreciation for Eddie Rabbit goes back to the 70's. His musical style is so distinctive, applicable to everyday life, enjoyable and most of all entertaining. He stuck to his beliefs and virtues even when the genre was drastically changing. Eddie's music would cause me to stop what I was doing, tap my toes and listen to the words. I connected easily because I realized that often his lyrics were saying exactly what I've gone through at times. When I saw this CD I bought it without any reservation, when I first heard I knew that this was Eddie in unmistakably true form and undenieably at his best. It saddens me that country music lost such a great talent, songwriter and wonderful entertainer. God Bless Eddie, and God Bless his wife and his children for sharing him with us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Eddie! July 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Eddie Rabbitt perform in Tahoe in the late seventies. My roommate invited me to accompany her to his concert--and so we embarked on a Greyhound travelling form the Bay area. At the time, I didn't know who Eddie Rabbitt was--but after the performance, I became a dedicated fan. In retrospect, I'm glad I went to the concert and paid the usher an extra twenty to get a front row seat.
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.
