MCA Nashville's One More Time: The MCA Recordings
was released on the heels of the independent success Kelly Willis
enjoyed in 1999 with What I Deserve
. Though it may have appeared after a success, the compilation isn't really a cash in. It's really quite useful, as a matter of fact, since it summarizes her three MCA albums -- 1990's Well Travelled Love
, 1991's Bang Bang
, and 1993's Kelly Willis
-- while adding "Little Honey," her contribution to the Thelma & Louise soundtrack. For anyone looking to catch-up after What I Deserve
, this is an excellent place to go (especially since two of her three MCA albums were out of print at the time of One More Time's release), and it's a satisfying listen in its own right.
