More Info:

First time on CD worldwide. For his 1981 Columbia encore album 'Gimme You,' Billy Burnette stepped away from the stripped-down attack of it's eponymous predecessor to incorporate a fuller sound, spiced by occasional horns and backing vocalists. He recorded the album in Alabama with the vaunted Muscle Shoals studio band that played on countless soul and pop smashes during it's long residency: guitarist Jimmy Johnson, bassist David Hood, drummer Roger Hawkins, and keyboardist Barry Beckett. In addition to recording both rock and country music as a solo artist, Billy Burnette wrote for such hit makers as Rod Stewart, Ray Charles, Roy Orbison, Cher, Faith Hill, Gregg Allman, Tammy Wynette, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Everly Brothers, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Tanya Tucker, Ringo Starr, Glen Campbell, Eddy Raven, and many more. Burnette became close friends with Mick Fleetwood in the early '80s, leading to an invitation to join Fleetwood Mac from 1987-1995.
