Being a new fan of Vince's who pretty much wore out "These Days", I bought a bunch of his older CDs. Wow! Good stuff!
For a while I was miffed and confused that I didn't know him or his music back then, but the upside is that I have had a whole new library of material to listen to at once.
I find myself listening to "The Key" and "The Next Big Thing" and "Souvenirs" over and over again. I especially like the song about his dad on "The Key". It was during that song at his concert in Feb that was an "ah-ha"moment for me, as in....ah-ha.....this guy is more than really good. I remembered the part about the Randall knife in that song, and that helped me find that particular song in his library of songs. What the heck is a randall knife?
Do any other fans have any favorite older songs or CDs?

If you want Vince's older music, pick up The Essential Vince Gill. It has all his songs from his days at RCA...and if you want to go back even farther than that, an album that should still be pretty easy to find is Pure Prairie League Concert Classics Vol. 1.
The Key and Next Big Thing are two of my favorite albums of Vince's. I love the traditional country feel of The Key...and My Kind of Woman/My Kind of Man could have been a Loretta Lynn/Conway Twitty or George Jones/Tammy Wynette duet...it's so reminiscent of those duets.

Valerie thanks for the tip. I'll have to pick up The Essential Vince Gill. I'm sure I'll have fun listening to that one too!
