'80s Country 1988-1990 is a fine collection of a different face of country music. Contemporary country had found a home and the popularity and talent were just getting started. Rock & roll was no longer the first priority for Pam Tillis or the members of the Desert Rose Band, as they were all having great success on the country charts. Sawyer Brown's remake of the George Jones classic "The Race Is On" and newcomer Lionel Cartwright's "Give Me His Last Chance" kept them in the spotlight. And there's a great tune from the Artists of the Decade, Alabama.
