AllMusic Review by

The Definitive Collection delivers 25 essential tracks by Don Williams, spanning his tenure with ABC, MCA, and Capitol Records. With the exception of "Stay Young," all of his chart-topping country hits from the '70s and '80s are here, including "Heartbeat in the Darkness," "Tulsa Time," "I Believe in You," "Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good," and "I Wouldn't Want to Live if You Didn't Want Me," his first number one from 1974. While not as generous as the 40-track Anthology set on Hip-O, it's convenient to have all his original hits on one disc.
