Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 highlights ten of the Oak Ridge Boys' early MCA hits. This is the Oaks' earliest blend of country and pop after leaving the gospel circuit exclusively. These tracks remain some of the finest: "Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight," "Come on In," "Sail Away," "Y'all Come Back Saloon," and their first number one single in 1978, "I'll Be True to You."
Transitioning From Gospel Quartet To Country Stars...
"Y'all Come Back Saloon" shocked Dinah Shore when she invited The Oak Ridge Boys to play on the Gospel Music episode of her television show. They exclaimed "We've Gone Country" - perhaps the most shocking statement they could have made back in the mid-1970's. Actually, going "Country" allowed them to sing more about real life, and still sing about the Lord to a broader audience; just like Elvis used the Stamps & the Imperials to sing Gospel Music on the road and in Las Vegas. Country has always been accepting of it's performers and it's fans having real religious feelings and convictions.
Brings back great memories
My dad had this tape when I was little and I wore it out. All the songs are great and the vocals are awesome. Maybe I'm just sentimental but this album brings back great memories...absolutely love Leaving Louisiana and Y'all Come Back Saloon :)
Doesn't get any better than this...
To me this is what classic country is all about...the Oak Ridge Boys don't sound this good these days...but this album is classic and awsome. Leaving Louisana in the Broad Daylight is as retro...Urban Cowboy era as it gets.
