AllMusic Review by

For someone looking to improve upon their country singing collection without having to spend a lot on separate best-of collections, Castle's Great Country Legends, with discs of material from Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Kenny Rogers & the First Edition, Merle Haggard, Jim Reeves, and Don Williams is a good option. Many of the tracks here are live -- and the sound quality is not always stellar -- but a lot of famous songs are included, making the box set a decent purchase, especially for its budget-label worthy price.
