The 14-track Very Best of Shelly West covers the singer's early-'80s chart-toppers recorded on the Warner/Viva label, including the number one hit "Jose Cuervo." This fairly solid set features the original versions of "Flight 309 to Tennessee," "Another Motel Memory," and "Now There's You." Unfortunately, the hits she recorded with David Frizzell during the same period, specifically "A Texas State of Mind" and "You're the Reason God Make Oklahoma," aren't included. Since the majority of Shelly West CD compilations have included re-recorded versions of these tracks, dedicated fans can now enjoy the original hits digitally remastered for the first time.
Well done again, Varese and iTunes!
These are the original recordings of the hits Shelly West made famous on the country charts, including, for what may be the first time, the first legit version of "Jose Cuervo". (God, that song has legs on it.) Anyway, these are not the usual re-recordings we've come to know and loathe from iTunes.
Well done on Frizzell & West. Now, let's keep at it. Charly McClain, John Conlee, Lynn Anderson---all of these classic country acts and many more are just begging to have their hits released, in the original versions, on iTunes. If I have to hear one more re-recording of "Rocky Top" I am prepared to go postal---the original is out there on Lynn's Chess best-of, it just needs to come here.
Anway, this is true country gold. Enjoy.
