Album Review

Country Music Classics, Vol. 21 (1980-1985) collects ten tracks that embrace the country-pop of the period. Highlights from this budget-priced collection include original versions of "I Will Always Love You" by Dolly Parton, "Elvira" by the Oak Ridge Boys, "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool" by Barbara Mandrell, and "City of New Orleans" by Willie Nelson. While the packaging is drab, the sound quality is decent, making this is an affordable way to pick up these country tracks.
