CLASSIC CONWAY LPs Part 1

HERE'S A SELECTION OF PRIME CT LPS FOR ALL OF THE CONWAY FANATICS WHO FIRST HEARD THESE ON VINYL BACK IN THE DAY! Man, Conway Twitty is a FANTASTIC country singer.


DARLING, YOU KNOW I WOULDN'T LIE
Decca Records 1969
This is Conway's sixth country album for the Decca Records label and the title track was a #2 country hit. There are also nice versions of George Jones ("Window Up Above") and Merle Haggard ("Hungry Eyes") classics.

I CAN'T SEE ME WITHOUT YOU
Decca Records 1972
Produced by Owen Bradley, this is one of my favorite Conway albums. I don't know if it's the "dark" cover artwork or the genius title track but this album is intriguing and never fails to impress. Highlights include "Looking Through My Glass," the Elvis-ish original "This Road That I Walk" and Lambert/Potter's "It's A Crying Shame" which should've been a hit for the Grass Roots.

SHE NEEDS SOMEONE TO HOLD HER (WHEN SHE CRIES)
MCA Records 1973
Another winner with production by Owen Bradley and even a guest vocal spot by daughter Kathy Twitty on "Don't Cry Daddy" which Elvis also recorded. Solid tunes and a great rendition of the country classic "Darlin'."

CONWAY TWITTY'S HONKY TONK ANGEL
MCA Records 1974
Conway Twitty was unstoppable in 1974 as a superstar country hitmaker and this #1 album proves that his voice was THE BEST. Check out "Pop A Top" and "Before Your Time."
