AllMusic Review by

Like all Time Life collections, this sampler of some of the biggest country hits of the '70s has great remastered sound and features original recordings by the original artists. Included here are Loretta Lynn's autobiographical "Coal Miner's Daughter," Dolly Parton's early gem "Jolene," Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson's classic duet on "Good Hearted Woman," and Kenny Rogers' slick but effective "Lucille." Think of this set as a classic country jukebox spanning a whole decade.
