Tuesday 11pm ET: Feature LP: Alabama – For The Record (1998)

For the Record is a 44-track greatest hits package released by the American country music band Alabama.

The album chronicles the biggest hits from Alabama released between 1980 and 1998. The lineup includes all 33 of their Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles & Tracks No. 1 singles, as well as other songs which reached number one on the former Radio & Records (now Mediabase) charts; each of the non-Billboard No. 1 hits made the top 5 on that chart.

Three new tracks are also included. Of these, “How Do You Fall in Love” reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in late 1998. The follow-up single, “Keepin’ Up”, reached the Top 20 in early 1999, while “Five O’Clock 500” was not released as a single.

All of the greatest hits are presented in their single/radio edit forms; in some cases, the songs were nearly two minutes shorter than their original album versions.
