Good -not great- overview of a talented artist's first phase / 4
Clint Black arrived on the country charts in 1989, a great year for new talent in country music, with Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, and Travis Tritt also releasing debut albums. As hard as it may be to believe now, Black's debut Killin' Time established him initially as the biggest of the new stars with hits like "A Better Man," "Nobody's Home," and the title track.

These songs effectively displayed Black's clever wordplay amid fairly traditional honky tonk arrangements and a Haggardesque vocal style with a dash of quiver. While it wasn't long before Black was surpassed in the sales and award arena by Brooks and even Jackson, his music continued to captivate - as this Greatest Hits shows.

All of his first five albums are represented on Greatest Hits, but strangely, only "A Better Man" and "Killin' Time" are here from the first album, with the lone entry from his second, Put Yourself In My Place, being its title track. Any collection calling itself Black's Greatest should have included the aforementioned "Nobody's Home" (now available on Greatest Hits II) and the sumptuous "Loving Blind."

By the time Black released his fourth and fifth albums (which have a combined seven tracks included here), his music had begun to lack some originality. The melodies for "We Tell Ourselves" and "No Time To Kill" are pretty much interchangeable and "Summer's Comin'" sounds like a knockoff of Jackson's megahit "Chattahoochee" (and even if it's not, Black's lyrics have never been so uninspired).

Still, there were always plenty of highpoints, like the uptempo "Life Gets Away" and "A Good Run Of Bad Luck," plus his spinetingling pairing with Wynonna, "A Bad Goodbye." About the only big hit missing from albums 3 through 5 is the logistically-challenged yet irresistible "When My Ship Comes In" from The Hard Way (also available on Greatest Hits II).

Greatest Hits added four new recordings intended to appeal to the Black fan who already has everything else. "Like The Rain" is a haunting departure for Black that is truly among his best work. Likewise, "Cadillac Jack Favor" offers a nice change of pace in the form of a story song: the true saga of rodeo champ Favor who was framed for murder but eventually found innocent.

Less memorable are Black's downbeat "Half Way Up" and a live version of Desperado" with clumsy phrasing that never threatens to rival the Eagles' original version. These last two tracks are the exception rather than the rule, however. Greatest Hits is a consistently entertaining (if not fully comprehensive) set of highlights from the first phase of one of country music's most gifted singer-songwriters.
Song "The Old Man"
(Clint Black/Hayden Nicholas)

Off he goes
Down the road
Who knows how many
He's been down before

With all the years
He's comes to know
Does he wonder
If he's gonna see one more

Hanging on to yesterdays
Till too many tomorrow's are today
With all the turns the road will bring
Well a young men gotta wait and see

And will I ever be the old man
Whose words young ones ponder on
Will I ever take a lady's hand
And will I ever be the old man
Who finds that he's too far gone
Will there come a day when I can't stand
Am I gonna live that long

Reaching out
For days to come
Where an old man walks a young man runs
The road I know is bound to end
Still I can't help wonder where and when

And will I ever be the old man
Whose words young ones ponder on
Will I ever take a lady's hand
And will I ever be the old man
Who finds that he's too far gone
Will there come a day when I can't stand
Tell me am I gonna love that long
