Gary Gene Watson (born October 11, 1943) is an American country singer. He is most famous for his 1975 hit "Love in the Hot Afternoon," his 1981 hit "Fourteen Carat Mind," and his signature 1979 song "Farewell Party. Watson's long career has notched five number ones, 23 top tens and over 76 charted singles. Watson was born in Palestine, Texas, in 1943.
Despite his long run of hits, Gene Watson remains one of country music’s most underrated talents. Best of the Best: 25 Greatest Hits is a long-overdue retrospective that finds the legendary Texas singer re-recording his most famous songs from the '70s onward. The years have been kind to Watson’s warm, supple voice, and the album’s arrangements stick close to those of the original recordings, with longtime Watson sideman Sorry Garrish adding steel guitar on numerous tracks.
Still, a listener can wonder why the subject of a second volume of such an artist's so-called "best" recordings even comes up, especially when the playing time is so short that it seems like Watson is going out the back door only a moments after he has come in the front, to paraphrase a Haggard song. What is classic here is, of course, the great "Nothing Sure Looked Good on You," a song that literally rapes the notion of a typical country & western song with its eyes.
I have followed Gene Watson since he first started in the 70'd I was able to watch him live last week, he is just as good on this album, he is one of the best of the old country singers and I would recommend this album to everyone. 4 people found this helpful.
