At 10 tracks, this Freddie Hart best-of collection is a bit skimpy, but it still covers all the best-known hits by the honky tonk-flavored country-pop artist. Although Hart began recording in the 1950s, he didn't hit his commercial stride until the early '70s, when the sweet, lilting "Easy Loving" became a runaway hit. That tune is included, of course, along with tear-in-your-beer numbers like "Bless Your Heart" and emotive love songs like "Got the All Overs for You (All Over Me)." Hart isn't afraid of lush arrangements, and rarely ups the tempo past mid-level, but his expressive songs of longing are the stuff barroom ballads are built on. BEST OF offers an introductory crash course in all of these styles and more.
