I had the cd when it first aired, but played it till it wouldn't play anymore. I have tried for years to download each of the songs, but couldn't find all that were on this CD. I absolutely love it!

Garth the Man to Chris the Boy
I was extremely disappointed to C what Garth was trying to do, and to not have succeeded. I so wanted him to, I watch only part of the making of Chris Gains due to coming across the program too late. I only got to C a little bit of it, but what I was I was in a trance. I've wanted so badly to C this program from the very beginning, I, to, this day, check all around the stations hoping to find it again. I've checked out Garths' website in hopes he has it for sale on a DVD no such luck. If anyone knows where I can C or buy this program please let me know my handle is gadgetfreak718. I purchased this CD about 3 weeks back and I can't stop listening to it. When I'm in the car, I do not turn on the radio anymore, because nothing is better then Chris. I should be able to sing all the songs soon, I hope I do not wear out the CD b4 I learn all the songs lyrics. There's not too much I can say about it, but, I LOVE IT, & I HAVE TO GET MY DAILY DOSE OF CHRIS. Garth is great I wish he hadn't retired @ such a young age, I know his priorities are his kids, but darn it, his fans need a little loving too LOL. There is only 2 singers, in, and not of this world that I really love, the charisma of Elvis Presley and Garth Brooks. Oh I'm sorry 3 singers I love Neil Sedaka also, he his in the same category, all 3 men are geniuses in my opinion. We all know what happened to Elvis, I still love him and he is still 1st in my book, but Garth Brooks is not that far behind Elvis. There's still hope for Garth he's still with us here on earth. Neil Sedaka I guess he is retired to, kind of, he plays Vegas but I never get to go when he is there, I've been trying but so far I haven't succeeded. With the enthusiasm that Garth puts into his concerts, you can't help but feel excellent. Chris Gains softer side is unbelievable goes to show you what a Genius Garth is.Read full review

Great music and musicians
I bought this CD when it originally came out but somehow it got lost. I was so glad to find it again on Ebay. I know a lot of people have given it a bad review because they didn't think Garth Brooks should sing anything other then Country. The thing is, he shows that he is such a talented singer that he can sing more than just Country. I think he does a fine job and the musicians behind him are fantastic. If you listen to the CD for what it is and not pan it because you think Garth should only sing Country, you will realize that this is great entertainment. It is a compilation of refreshing songs that still sound great over 10 years later. Give it a listen, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

The best unknown Garth Brooks album aka: Chris Gaines
It is a real shame that the record companies abuse their signed talents. This album of Garth's is, in my opinion, the best of all of his. The whole idea was brilliant. The production, the music, and lyrics are great. It was an international hit however it is "poo pooed" in america due to basic big business politics.
I always recommend this album and end up buying it for friends to enjoy. It is a real treat to listen to.

Chris Gaines/ Garth Brooks
I've always liked Garth Brooks- he turned me (and I'm sure thousands more) on to Country music. I agree with other reviewers- his hat shows through the greasy-haired punk exterior, as long as you know who you're listening to from the start. I LOVE the Right Now song- it's gritty and soft at the same time. The Unsigned Letter is my favorite- the words are fascinating- what if this happened to me? Would I go? Would I hide? Garth's voice is wonderful to listen to, as always. The only real problem I have with the album is that the movie was never made- I think it was supposed to happen, but never did.
Should you buy this album? If you like Garth, Yes. It has a folk feel to it, rather than a punk feel, so I guess if you like Peter Paul and Mary, this CD will make you happy. I have 7 of the songs ripped to my computer, most CD's only get 2 or 3. Hope this helps! DianaRead full review
