AllMusic Review by

This is the first official Billy Joe Royal greatest-hits package, released by Columbia in 1989. All of his early soul/country/pop hits are included: "Down in the Boondocks," "Cherry Hill Park," "Yo-Yo," "Hush," and his final hit for the label, a cover of the Drifters' classic "Under the Boardwalk." As a companion piece, pick up Royal's Greatest Hits [Atlantic], covering his country hits from the '90s.
