AllMusic Review by

Bouncing around in a hybrid style that at its best combined pop, country, rock & roll, and sometimes even a dose of jazz, Rusty Draper turned going middle of the road into a fine career. This massive 66-track, double-disc set has just about everything Draper anyone would ever need, collecting his hits "No Help Wanted," "Gambler's Guitar," "Lighthouse," "The Shifting Sands," and "The Ballad of Davy Crockett," his duets with Patti Page, and key tracks from his albums, including several cuts from his acclaimed album of Hoagy Carmichael covers. Varied and fun, and at times even beautiful, this release at once makes a fine introduction and a fine career overview for an artist who was one of the biggest crossover acts of the 1950s.
