    I LOVE YOU DROPS was released on Decca, not EPic

    Randy Travis’ “Storms Of Life” has to be one of the best debut albums in the history of county music. I just about wore out that cassette playing it in my truck when it was first released. Not one bad song on that collection and the finest album on this week’s list.

      I couldn’t agree more. For me that album, and COUNTRY CHARLIE PRIDE, are the best ountry debut albums ever

        Storms of Life has been one of my all-time favorites since it was released. I’m having a hard time coming to grips with the fact that it’s been 25 years. It doesn’t seem like that long.
