Country singer and songwriter Dan Seals started his professional musical career in the '60s with a three-member band called the Southwest F.O.B.. The group's debut single, "The Smell of Incense," made it onto the pop charts. When the same success didn't come from other recordings, Seals and one of the other members moved on to become the pop-style duo England Dan & John Ford Coley. The popular team released their first album, Fables, in 1971. By 1980 Seals had walked away from the twosome to record his first solo offering, Stones. He served up his country tunes with a good helping of pop flavoring. Fans seemed to agree with the style and his songs earned him a number of awards and hits. A string of full-length albums followed throughout the '80s and into the '90s. Now, two decades after that debut solo, Certified Hits proves that some things only get better with the passing of time. This collection of tunes includes big radio hits like "Everything That Glitters (Is Not Gold)," "Addicted," "Big Wheels in the Moonlight," and "One Friend." This album makes it easy for new fans, or old fans, to get a number of hits from Dan Seals on one recording. ~ Charlotte Dillon
