MAC DAVIS

A Little More Action Please - The Anthology 1970-1985 (RVCD-367)

Raven releases the most comprehensive Best Of CD collection to chronicle the career of one of American’s most popular singer / songwriters of the 1970s and 1980s – MAC DAVIS. A Little More Action Please: The Anthology 1970-1985 boasts every Top 40 Billboard Country and Pop hit single that the Texas-born Davis issued between 1970 and 1985. This multi-label compilation covers his best recordings for Columbia, Casablanca and MCA. In addition to his masterful song writing skills, Davis enjoyed a highly successful solo recording career as a country-pop crossover artist and you can add to that his work as a TV presenter and film star.

His incredible run of solo hits included the #1 ‘Baby Don’t Get Hooked on Me’, ‘One Hell of a Woman’, ‘Stop and Smell the Roses’, ‘Rock n’ Roll (I Gave You the Best Years of My Life)’, ‘It’s Hard to be Humble’, ‘Let’s Keep it that Way’, ‘Texas in My Rear View Mirror’, ‘Hooked on Music’ and ‘I Never Made Love (Till I Made Love with You)’. They’re all here – and more, including his own versions of the classic ‘In the Ghetto’ and ‘A Little Less Conversation’ (both recorded by Elvis Presley) and ‘I Believe in Music’. In many ways his versions are the definitive renditions. The songs deftly combine country and pop with a lavishly produced, sweet soft rock base, while Davis delivers the melodies with just a hint of twang. With superb audio quality and detailed notes this entertaining CD is a must for fans of classic singer / songwriter country-pop.
