Album Review

Jack Greene's MOR country ballads brought him several years of chart success, but today he is not as well-remembered as one might expect considering his 36 charting country singles, five of which were number one hits. "There Goes My Everything" was his career hit, spending seven weeks at number one and crossing over to the pop charts. Greene stuck with the style of that single for the rest of his years on Decca and MCA, during which he made a few hit duets with Jeannie Seely (another maker of slick, easy-listening country). Pleasant and flawlessly executed, Greene's recordings are comparable to the late '60s sounds of Eddy Arnold, or Roy Drusky's "croonier" moments. Greene's voice has character — he isn't a bland smoothie — and many of his songs ("Statue of a Fool," for one) are quite effective, but heard all at once they are so gentle as to recede into the background. Jolly Green Giant has the vast majority of Greene's big hits, but mysteriously omits his number one hit "Until My Dreams Come True" in favor of a couple of minor hits.
