Don Williams “Then It’s Love” Single Of The Day
Greetings from Asheville, where good music is always to be found. Today’s Single Of The Day is from Don Williams. One of the top vocalists of the 1970′s and 1980′s, Don’s stellar career racked up fifty-two Country 40 singles between 1973 and 1991. Of those, forty-five climbed into the top ten, with seventeen climbing all the way to number one. Today’s Single Of The Day didn’t quite reach the top, but as the follow-up to his last number one, “Heartbeat In The Darkness”, “Then It’s Love” did pretty well, peaking at three.
Released by Capitol Records in late 1986, it features a unique tempo pattern of mostly up-tempo, but with short stops, throughout, it features a very catchy melody, good lyrics, and I believe a very strong refrain. The record really stood out on the radio, during it’s chart life in early 1987. You can’t help but like this record.
Saving vinyl, one record at a time.
