I pretty much have been a ROCKER all of my 35 years, but as I get older, I can appreciate the qualities of other styles of music now. I have never really liked country music, even though, some songs catch my ear sometimes. I look for hooks in songs, that goes for rock, classical, jazz, folk, and country and other styles. If I like it, I like it. It doesnt matter what kind of music it is. Thats what I am talking about when I listen to Hal Ketchum. From the first time I heard Small Town Saturday Night, and the awesome, and deep I Know Where Love Lives (two of the best songs on this compilation). These two songs are my favorites, as far as hooks go, but to tell you the truth, the whole cd is great. Hal just has that unique voice that sets him apart from anyone else. If you want great country music, or just great music for that matter, get this one. Heck, get all of his recordings....

This collection of hits is representative of Hal Ketchum's brilliant career so far. Ketchum is, first, a songwriter whose style of crafting songs is unique. "I Miss My Mary," an album cut from Ketchum's PAST THE POINT OF RESCUE, is a story, told in the first person, by a man who drowns his loneliness
every night in the local tavern. "Satisfied Mind" is one of the new songs recorded for this collection. It relates the sadness of losing a loved one to the fear of one's own death. This collection also includes, "Wings Of A Dove," which Ketchum first sang on the stage of the Grand Ol' Opry for his induction back in 1993. Ketchum gives a beautiful interpretation of this classic originally recorded by the late Ferlin Husky. This fourteen song collection is great for long drives through the country.

This is one of my favorite 5 or 6 CD's. From start to finish, this collection of 14 of Hal Ketchum's most popular hits is outstanding. Thhe CD is full of great tunes, but my favorite is "I Know Where Love Lives." The lyrics paint a beautiful picture of how true love can help us focus on the important things in life. In this case, true love happens to be "sittin' on the back porch with sea green eyes and chestnut hair."
"Satisfied Mind" is another song with exceptional lyrics, and it's tied to a melody that perfectly matches them. And "Someplace Far Away" is a story of its own.
You won't tire of listening to this CD and singing along with Ketchum's rich voice.

Hal Ketchum's THE HITS is a good place to start if you're not familiar with Hal's catalog. Hal was raised in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York but moved to Florida when he was 17 and then to Texas where he immediately started to hone his songwriting skills and play the Texas dance hall circuit. The influence of the Lone Star state is apparent in Hal's singing and songwriting. The solo-penned "I Miss My Mary" is hands-down my favorite track with "Sure Love," "I Know Where Love Lives" and "Stay Forever" following closely behind. Although Randy Travis also recorded the Tony Arata composition, "Satisfied Mind," Hal's aching vocal on this track is incomparable.

This CD is great! You start off with the song "Small Town Saturday Night". There are many other great songs on there as well. "Sure Love" and "Hearts Are Gonna Roll" are fine examples of great songs. His best song on this collection is "Satisfied Mind." It is an absolutely beautiful song. Tony Arata has done it again. I saw on another review that Randy Travis has this song on his "You and You Alone" album. Hal Ketchum sings it well, but since it did not end up being a release, I hope Randy Travis can do something with it. In the meantime, keep the hits coming, Hal!!!!!!!!
