AllMusic Review by

At first glance it might not appear that a package pairing a disc each from Gene Autry and Burl Ives really makes a lot of sense, but the two artists actually sort of complement each other here, with Ives' smoothed-over, mellow, and warm pop-folk approach sitting easily next to Autry's movie-sheened country & western offerings. Both singers were working on the side of willful commercial nostalgia when these sides were initially recorded, a nostalgia that has only increased a decade and change into the 21st century.
