Conway Twitty

When it comes to sounding hurt, regretful, confused or as mournful as a possum hound at a fancy dog show, Conway has no equal this side of George Jones. This album includes Nashville's word play tune of the year ("When we said 'I do' ") We Did But Now You Don't. And then there's Randy Van-Warmer's Just When I Needed You Most and Roger Murrah's A Good Love Died Tonight. Just about the only way we know old Conway doesn't spend all his days lamenting lost loves is a leaflet inserted in the album, inviting us to visit "Twitty City," his combination estate-museum-tourist attraction in Hendersonville, Tenn. There are city slickers, and then there are country slickers.
