Conway Twitty - Hello Darlin'

I have to apologize to my country fans out there again. I have about 5 or 6 requests for reviews to get to yet, but I had to sneak this one in. As some of you may know, I enjoy the weekly shenanigans of Peter Griffin and friends on the TV show 'Family Guy'. In case you're not familiar, when Peter gets into a jam, or wants a distraction, he turns to the camera and says, "Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Conway Twitty" - and then an actual performance made for TV is shown on the episode. What was more funny - there was an episode titled "The Juice Is Loose" and they aired the entire video for "I See The Want To In Your Eyes". I recall this specifically because it prompted the people who were watching with me to stop their conversation and say, "What the hell??? This is still going??"" Hilarious. Anyway, I figured - why not give Conway a shot on the B Side? One thing I have to say, his voice is mesmerizing. Since I have a problem with that monotone type of vocal, he changes pitch and shows some range in just about every song. I only chose this record because it has probably his most famous track ever, in Hello Darlin'. Most of his music sounds the same, which is really about the only negative I can come up with. Crazy enough, I'd probably listen to this in my free time. Weird huh? I was doing some reading on Mr. Twitty, and he did some covers that I'd like to hear someday. Those include: 'Slow Hand', 'Heartache Tonight' and 'The Rose' by The Pointer Sisters, The Eagles and Bette Midler respectively. I encourage everyone to go honky tonk today and try a little Twitty. It might brighten up your Thursday!
