AllMusic Review by

An excellent songwriter whose Everyman singing voice was capable of subtle emotional leverage, Don Gibson walked the line between pop, folk, and pure country about as well as anyone ever has, and at least three of his songs, "Sweet Dreams," "Oh, Lonesome Me," and "I Can't Stop Lovin' You," have become acknowledged classics in both the pop and country arenas. This set has versions of all three of those songs, but unfortunately these aren't the original RCA recordings but do-overs Gibson recorded later in his career when he was contracted to Nashville's Hickory Records, and at only eight songs in length, this set barely qualifies as an introduction to what Gibson has to offer.
