by Don Williams



Spanning two discs, 20 years, and 40 songs, Hip-O's Anthology is a definitive overview of Don Williams' hit-making peak, containing the cream of his chart-topping country smashes. It's neatly divided, with the first disc devoted to his '70s work, the second to his '80s, and if the first is a bit stronger, it's only because it's more interesting to hear an artist hit his stride than settling into a signature sound. Still, there are great moments throughout both discs, all offering definitive proof that Williams' laid-back, warm country-pop was as good as mainstream country-pop got -- it was lush and accessible, but with real country roots, unlike many of his peers.

It's a shame that Don Williams is not heard much on the radio these days. This 2-CD set represents the best of Don Williams. 40 songs, each one excellent. It is a very good retrospective of one of the great talents in country music. It belongs in every country music fan's collection.

Don Williams, the legend. All his hits on this cd package, what a find. Put on this music of this easy laid back crooner and sing or hum along with him and go back in time with your memories. This is a great set of this artist's music that has made him an icon of ballards and music to sing along with in his easy tempo of melodies of love. This is a great buy and will bring much enjoyment for a long long time.

I've loved Don Williams since I was a little girl and it's great to have some of his best songs compiled together!
