Jim Weatherly - Dancing Moon
This album was recorded and mixed in 1977. It was never
released on vinyl or tape due to the record company being
phased out and sold. The Album has been digitally
re-mastered and is available now, for the first time, on CD.
It includes two of Weatherly's biggest hits as a songwriter.
"You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me" was
a number one record for Gladys Knight & The Pips, both R&B
and pop, and was a number one record for Ray Price on the
country charts. "Love Finds It's Own Way" was another
pop and R&B hit for Gladys Knight & The Pips. Also, "All
That Keeps Me Going" was released as a single by
Weatherly and was a Top 30 Country hit.

Reviewer: Thomas Novak of Shelton, CT
Jim Weatherly is best known for his Top 10
compositions for Gladys Knight ("Neither One of Us",
"Midnight Train To Georgia", "Best Thing That Ever Happened
To Me") and his own Top 20 Hit "The Need To Be".
The prolific writer has had about a dozen albums out on
numerous labels. This collection, entitled "Dancing Moon",
may be his finest so far. His relaxed, warm sounding voice
makes these ten songs sound like old friends after the first
listen. Jim produced and wrote all of the songs. They are
all beautifully arranged and orchestrated. The standout
songs for me were the title song, "Dancing Moon", the
haunting "No Blues For Susie" and one of the most
beautiful ballads ever written "You're The Best Thing
That Ever Happened to Me". Please do yourself a favor
and discover a true tunesmith... Jim Weatherly. You will not

Easy Listening country and soft rock from the
writer of such hits as "Midnight Train To Georgia"
and "You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me",
both recorded by Gladys Knight & The Pips. Think Glen
Campbell (Yes! Glen has recorded his songs too!)D
5 STARS: author: Jeff Hall--Another great CD from the former All - Southeastern Conference QB from Ole Miss!
This CD contains two of Jim's best songs ever, I Hope It Never Rains and A Promise Is A Promise. The latter song is one of the few songs by Jim that is heavily saxophone-influenced.
