RONNIE MILSAP

20-20 Vision / Night Things (2-for-1) (RVCD-338)

Raven presents two classic Country albums on one CD from Country Music Award and Grammy Award winning singer and pianist RONNIE MILSAP. 20-20 Vision and Night Things, recorded for RCA in 1976 and 1975 respectively, are two albums of enormous strength that saw Milsap performing at the top of his game. Although born blind from congenital glaucoma, the extraordinarily talented Milsap was proficient on violin, piano, guitar and woodwinds from an early age. In the late-60s he moved to Memphis to work as a session musician (appearing on several Elvis Presley hits). In the early-70s he moved to Nashville becoming one of the major figures in Country music, developing a hybrid of Country ballads, R&B and pop that brought him a large audience.

20-20 Vision and Night Things spawned three US #1 hits: ‘Daydreams about Night Things’, ‘What Goes On when the Sun Goes Down’ and ‘(I’m A) Stand By My Woman Man’. Milsap’s ability to dramatize every nuance of the song, with his bittersweet, refined and intimate approach made him a genuine star. That string of hits began a remarkable run where Milsap didn’t leave the Top Ten for 15 straight years. Of the five bonus tracks another two were also US #1s – ‘A Legend in My Time’ (1974) and ‘Let My Love Be Your Pillow’ (1976). With 77 minutes of superb quality audio, detailed liner notes and colour booklet this compelling 2-for-1 collection stands as a master class in Country song writing and performance craft.
