Exile - Greatest Hits (1990) Retail CD
Exile, founded by J P Pennington, began as a group as far back as 1963 (as a rock'n'roll group called The Exiles), but changed their name to Exile in 1973. They had one major international hit and several other (minor) hits. The major hit, Kiss you all over, topped the American charts and also made the British top ten, In both countries, they followed up with some minor hits and it seemed that they were just another pop group who would disappear quickly. However, their songs were good and attracted a number of covers, particularly by country singers although Huey Lewis and the News were successfulmore… with Heart and soul. Among the country singers to cover Exile's songs were Dave and Sugar (Stay with me), Janie Fricke (It ain't easy being easy) and Alabama (The closer you get, Take me down). All these covers did well on the country charts with the two by Alabama going to number one. Eventually Exile, with a new lead singer (Les Taylor), decided to try their luck as a country group. Their rocking, upbeat, pop-country music proved to be very successful for a few years. Some people found them too slick but I found their music highly entertaining. Now that Exile were having hits with their own songs (often going all the way to number one in the country charts), covers of their songs became rarer although the Forester sisters scored a huge country hit with Just in case, a track from one of Exile's country albums.This collection contains nine of their best country hits (most of them number ones), plus a re-recording of Kiss you all over. You can find the original version of that song, plus their other pop songs, on a different compilation covering that period of their career. My favorite tracks here are Woke up in love, I don't want to be a memory, Give me one more chance, She's a miracle and Crazy for your love. A few hits are missing including three further number ones (It'll be me, She's too good to be true, I can't get close enough) but a couple of twofers are available for those that want the original albums.This is a great overview of one of the best rocking country groups I've heard.
