AllMusic Review by

How do you sum up a quarter century of history making music? The Bellamy Brothers succeed in doing just that in a 25-year celebration of the hits they have given the world. The 25 Year Collection, Vol. 1 is the first in a two-part release for Howard and David Bellamy. Listening to the album is a digitally enhanced stroll through the past. Modern recording and re-mastering technology is used to produce a crisper sound on Bellamy classics such as "Let Your Love Flow," "Old Hippie," "Crazy From the Heart," and "Sugar Daddy." In a refreshing change from many greatest-hits collections, the Bellamys include three live cuts: "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)," featuring an outstanding guitar solo; "I Could Be Persuaded"; and "Redneck Girl," which effectively closes the album on an upbeat note. With its retrospective photo montage insert, the Bellamy Brothers' 25 Year Collection, Vol. 1 is sure to stir memories from the days when traditional country music first began its merge with mainstream light rock.
