Dan Seals (1948-2009) had an amazing career and an amazing personal history. A 1970's soft-pop/country crossover crooner who did pretty well for himself in the tinkly, synthy confines of the 1980s Nashville scene, Seals was half of the chart-topping pop duo, England Dan & John Ford Coley. When his solo career foundered in the early 1980s, Seals "went country" with great commercial success. And... did you happen to know that his cousins include '70s/'80s country star Johnny Duncan, as well as a whole slew of musical Sealses, such as Nashville songwriter/guitarist Troy Seals, singer Brady Seals (of the band Little Texas) and also Dan's older brother, Jim Seals, who was in that pop duo... y'know? Seals & Croft? Go figure!! Here's a quick look at his work...




Discography - Best-Ofs

Dan Seals "The Best" (Liberty, 1987)
A good representation of his earlier and most significant country hits. Seals can surprise you at times, with reasonably vigorous country tunes such as "Three Time Loser" and "God Must Be A Cowboy," but after a while his softcore, uber-mellow performances get to be a bit monotonous. Doesn't quite ring my bells. Includes his duet with Marie Osmond, "Meet Me In Montana," which is predictably cheesy, but was a big ole hit anyway. Go figure.


Dan Seals "The Best Of Dan Seals" (Curb, 1994)
A modestly-programmed, 11-song set, with the major hits in a more compact form than other, generously packed best-ofs...


Dan Seals "Greatest Hits" (EMI, 1991)


Dan Seals "Certified Hits" (Capitol, 2001)


Dan Seals "The Very Best Of Dan Seals" (Varese Sarabande, 2011)
The late Dan Seals had an amazing career and an remarkable personal history. A 1970's soft-pop/country crossover crooner who did pretty well for himself in the tinkly, synthy confines of the 1980s Nashville scene, Seals was half of the chart-topping pop duo, England Dan & John Ford Coley. When his solo career foundered in the early 1980s, Seals "went country" with great commercial success. And... did you happen to know that his cousins include '70s/'80s country star Johnny Duncan, as well as a whole slew of musical Sealses, such as Nashville songwriter/guitarist Troy Seals, singer Brady Seals (of the band Little Texas) and also Dan's older brother, Jim Seals, who was in that pop duo... y'know? Seals & Croft? Go figure!! This generously programmed set gathers eighteen prime Seals songs from his Nashville days, including almost all of his hits singles, songs such as "Meet Me In Montana," "Bop," "God Must Be A Cowboy," and "After You." For fans of pop-oriented Nashville country, this collection is a goldmine.
