Lost in the Feeling by Conway Twitty

This 1983 album is nowadays remembered mostly for its cover—that lovely lass looking over Conway’s shoulder happens to be a pre-fame Naomi Judd. But the real reason fans should seek out this new re-release is to be reminded of how an artist with a firmly defined persona like Conway’s can craft a full album that holds a consistent mood.

In today’s mainstream country, many albums hedge bets with a little-of-this, little-of-that-approach: Uptempo song about living in the country? Check. Love ballad? Check. Song about untimely death? Check. Beach-bum song? Check. By contrast, Lost in the Feeling is a half-hour of pure Conway, even with a track list that includes several songs that are indelibly associated with other artists (the Eagles’ “Heartache Tonight,” Lionel Richie’s “Three Times a Lady”).
