AllMusic Review by

This three-disc budget collection from the Goldies label, aptly titled I Love You Because: Famous Country Love Songs is as poorly constructed as it looks. While there's no debating the brilliance of songs like "Gentle on My Mind," "Stand by Your Man," "Let Your Love Flow," "If I Were a Carpenter" and "Always on My Mind," the third-rate live versions that represent them here are far from memorable. A fine example of the dark art of licensing.
