Album Review

This is an enjoyable budget sampler featuring 23 of Gene Watson's Capitol and MCA honky tonk hits. These original recordings include his first hit from 1975, "Love in the Late Afternoon," "Got No Reason for Goin' Home," and "Memories to Burn." Besides the omission of the classic "Farewell Party," Ultimate Collection is recommended for those just getting familiar with Watson's mellow and soulful take on traditional country music.

Customer Reviews

no memories to burn

i only rated this low because, itunes does not let you buy all the songs!!!! i want to buy memories to burn and it is not on this part of the album that is offered :(

Love in the Hot afternoon

I want the original version of this song, "Love in th Hot Afternoon" which they don't allow you to dowload from this album. They have some re recording that just are not as good on other albums. Give us the original! Rated this a 4 because I want this album in it entirety which has original recordings as opposed to the crap that i-tunes is trying to push. It would be a five. thanks

Though he can sing honky tonk, Gene Watson built a reputation for soulful ballads in the classic country tradition. Born one of seven children in Palestine, Texas, Watson married early and was working as an auto-body man when he began frequenting the clubs in Houston. He recorded for a few small-time regional labels like Wide World and Stoneway during the early '70s. Watson finally had success in 1974, when a steamy single for Resco -- "Love in the Hot Afternoon" -- was picked up for national distribution...
