AllMusic Review by

At 36 tracks deep, this priced-to-move box set from Sony is a steal, as it houses some of the most revered gems of the genre. Appropriately titled Country Legends, the collection includes enough juke joint classics to power an all-nighter, with highlights arriving via the instantly recognizable voices of Patsy Cline ("Crazy"), Marty Robbins ("El Paso"), Willie Nelson ("Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain"), Tammy Wynette ("Stand by Your Man"), Crystal Gayle ("Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue"), Loretta Lynn ("Coal Miner's Daughter"), Johnny Cash ("Big River"), and many more.
