Back to Back provides ten songs, five each from '70s country crossover/soft rockers Michael Johnson and Stephen Bishop on one disc. While the combined artists are similar enough that the transition between the two isn't jarring, still, you wonder, what is the point of this? Also keep in mind these aren't the original hits but new re-recordings. If you're looking for the hit versions of "Bluer Than Blue" or "On and On," both artists have sperate greatest-hits packages available on Razor & Tie and Rhino, so definitely pass on this K-Tel collection.
