Clay Walker's Greatest Hits collection includes all the key hits from his first four albums -- Clay Walker (1993), If I Could Make a Living (1994), Hypnotize the Moon (1995), Rumor Has It (1997) -- and it also tacks on two new songs ("Ordinary People," "You're Beginning to Get to Me") for good measure. Clay Walker is represented by four songs ("What's It to You," "Live Until I Die," "Dreaming with My Eyes Open," "Where Do I Fit in the Picture"), If I Could Make a Living by two ("This Woman and This Man," "If I Could Make a Living"), Hypnotize the Moon by three ("Hypnotize the Moon," "Only on Days that End in 'Y'," "Who Needs You Baby"), and Rumor Has It by three ("Rumor Has It," "Then What," "Watch This"). Many of these songs were number one country hits, and those that weren't chart-toppers were popular nonetheless. In fact, every song here was a major hit for Walker, even the newly recorded songs, and since his hitmaking slowed in the years that followed the 1998 release of Greatest Hits, you won't find a better one-disc summary of his prime.
