Wah-wah guitars, moog solos, paeans to birds, camels, fire hydrants and other wildlife.
Something was in the water and the evidence is right here. Best known for their 1970
crossover hit "Tennessee Bird Walk", Jack and Misty will flummox you with some of the
funkiest novelties ever committed to tape, and then astound you with some of the most
compassionate, heart-wrenching ballads you are ever likely to hear. For the first time
on CD, with exclusive photographs and liner notes, sourced directly from the Artistes'
Quite simply, you have never heard how far country music can go, until you have heard
Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan!

This contains all but three of the songs on Jack and Misty's first two albums
("With Pen In Hand" from Birds Of A Feather, and "Sweet Memories" and "Rings
Of Gold" from "Two Sides of Jack & Misty"). Probably to keep it from becoming
a 2-CD set!
This is also the first CD release anywhere for "Don't It Make You Want To Go
Home?" (the Joe South classic) and "Chapel Hill", as well as the complete
version of "How I Lost 31 Pounds In 17 Days" (as opposed to the edited version
on "Jack And Misty Are Crazy!!!").
Also, to set the record straight, despite what the booklet tells you, tracks
12-14 and 24-27 are the original 45-only cuts.
