Outstanding follow-up to brilliant second album / 5
As things turned out, Shenandoah's second and third albums were by far their most successful. Their manager didn't like their original name and suggested two alternative names. Columbia (their record label) opted for Shenandoah but this name caused a lot of legal trouble because others had already copyrighted the name.

Their first album, simply titled Shenandoah, made limited impact but their second, Road not taken, included the major country hits Two dozen roses, Mama knows, Sunday in the south, Church on Cumberland road and several other great songs. This one matched - perhaps even surpassed - that impressive effort, but they never again matched these two fine efforts. Columbia, having chosen the name Shenandoah, refused to support the legal case and dropped them.

Here, you will find the original versions of several major country hits including Next to you next to me, Moon over Georgia, Ghost in this house and I got you, together with many other fine songs including She makes the coming home worth the being gone and Putting new roots down. The group clearly demonstrated its ability to sing fun, lightweight songs and romantic ballads with equal brilliance. It really looked as if they were set for a long period at the top, possibly replacing Alabama as the premier country group but the legal wrangle over their choice of name had taken its toll, even though they won their case.

Despite their legal troubles, they recovered sufficiently to have further big country hits with RCA and Capitol, most notably Somewhere in the vicinity of your heart (with Alison Krauss).

This album is definitely worth searching for if you enjoy country music of the early nineties, although the big hits from this album and Road not taken are available on Super hits.

Song "Ghost In This House"
I don't pick up the mail
I don't pick up the phone
I don't answer the door
I'd just as soon be alone
I don't keep this place up
I just keep the lights down
I don't live in these rooms
I just rattle around

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a shadow upon these walls
As quietly as a mouse I haunt these halls
I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
It took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house

I don't care if it rains
I don't care if it's clear
I don't mind stayin in
There's another ghost here
She sits down in your chair
And she shines with your light
And she lays down her head
On your pillow at night

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a shell of the man I was
A living proof of the damage heartbreak does
I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
It took my body, my soul
I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a ghost in this house
