Product Description:

Originally released on Columbia Records.
Liner Note Author: Della Reese.
Arranger: Hidle Brown Barnum.
Already a successful jazz vocalist , O.C. Smith crossed over into the pop market when "Little Green Apples" became a hit in 1968; reaching the number two spot on both the Billboard pop and R&B charts, its relaxed pace set the mood for his second solo album, Hickory Holler Revisited. Easily his most popular release, several other songs from the album made the R&B charts, including "Honey (I Miss You)," "Isn't It Lonely Together," and the definitive country-soul of "The Son of Hickory Holler's Tramp." The other album included on this Collectables two-fer, For Once in My Life, continues the country-soul stylings that Smith favored with versions of Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman" and "Sounds of Goodbye," penned by Eddie Rabbit. His cover of Mac Davis' "Friend, Lover, Woman, Wife" is included as a bonus track. ~ Wade Kergan
