"Best of" albums were something I looked forward to in days gone by.
This was how I could afford best songs by favourite singers heard on the radio. To me it's an excellent way of introducing great music to new listeners today.

In this case that would be for Clay Aiken, there are so many people that have no idea what Clay has accomplished since the American Idol 2 days. The chances of hearing him on the radio have been pretty slim!

Now is a great opportunity to introduce Clay's fantastic voice all over again!

Somehow I ended up at YouTube last night and found these super videos from 2004 NAT.
This tour received NAT (for Not a Tour) for a title because there wasn't any official name for it! Always resourceful Clay fans called it that, and it stuck. Later it was also known as the Solo tour.

Enjoy these, I sure did !!!

We'll start with Fields of Gold--a short audio clip..love this one! The video follows.

I enjoyed watching the old videos. What wonderful memories. Thanks for bringing them back to us in this blog. That last picture of Clay morphing from younger to older is wonderful!

I don't remember any of those songs. I really like Sweet Baby James. I was always hoping he would do a whole album of Gospel songs. Elvis did it, and I think Clay could make them sound just as wonderful. Lois

That's one of my favorite concerts to watch old videos of. Just like all of his concerts, no two are the same! Thank you for the memories!

another amazing trip in the history of OMC. As one of your bloggers said, how awesome it would be for Clay to record Gospel music. I think he has the soul for that. And I am here in BC, not Australia! luv B

Ashes,

Love the look back to the early tours, as well as the updated playlist for "The Very Best of Clay Aiken."

The latter played around with the Carolina poll; however, fans are still voting their favorites.
Thank you for your kind remarks in the entries at Blogspot and the OFC.

Have an awesome week!

Hi Ashes,
Thank you for the tracklist. I love all the songs there but will be a lot happier if they include Sacrificial Love and Oh Holy Night. LOL! Of course, they can't please everyone. Lovely blog as usual and thanks for the memories of NAT04. :) You're the BEST!

Love,
Sally (bsrefong)

It's such fun revisiting older videos. Thanks for posting some gems.

Can't wait for the new Clay Aiken CD even if it is songs I already have. I hope that they are really remastered so they sound a big different. Regardless, the CD is worth just for the cover art. *g*
