Album Review

Epic/Legacy's The Best of Billy Swan is a fine 16-track collection that features highlights from his recordings for Monument, Columbia, and Epic in the '70s and '80s. Swan's unexpected crossover hit, "I Can Help," is here, but the remaining 15 songs veer closer to country, bearing just a slight resemblance to the bouncy pop/rock of the hit. Among the remaining songs are the country hits "Everything's the Same (Ain't Nothing Changed)," "You're the One," "Shake, Rattle and Roll," "I Just Want to Taste Your Wine," "Do I Have to Draw a Picture," "I'm Not Lovin' You," "Stuck Right in the Middle of Your Love," "With Their Kind of Money and Our Kind of Love," and "Your Picture Still Loves Me (And I Still Love You)," as well as "Lover Please," the Clyde McPhatter song Swan wrote when he was in high school. Not all of the songs meet the standards of "I Can Help" and "Lover Please," but many of them are interesting and are among the better country-pop of their era.

Got that classic 70's sound!

even though he may be a one #1 hit wonder .. the style of music is still such that you can get into it even if you don't particularily know the song.. i would recommend at least buy the song "I Can Help" if you don't buy the album!

Cockroach Davis

Stranger is a nice classic type country song style popular in the 70's...nice one! And then of course the timeless classic, I Can Help.
