  • The incidental use of his then years-old romantic ballad "At This Moment" on the 1980s TV show FAMILY TIES resulted in a mega-hit for Billy Vera that topped the charts in several genres. But listeners may not remember that Vera also had other big singles--like the buoyant rockabilly number "Millie, Make Some Chili," or the lovely country waltz title song. This comprehensive collection includes 14 Vera hits altogether, all distinguished by the singer's gruff, deep register that bursts often into sweet soulfulness.
Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The latter selections are particularly rewarding, particularly the ballad 'Once In A Lifetime' and the strings-enhanced title song. A terrific spotlight on Vera in his prime."
