    I’ve been going back and listening to the songs from “The Woman In Me” quite often lately. That was such a great album with so many memorable tracks.

    Don’t judge, but “Speak Now” has gotten a fair amount of play around here as well.

    MY WORLD was a representative album for Eddy Arnold – a couple of hits, a few covers of others’ hits and some filler, sung better than 99% of the male vocalists, then or now, could sing it so as to make it pleasurable listening

    PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES was an excellent album – CLint Black’s career show not have faded the way it did
