AllMusic Review by

This is one of what have been far too many budget-priced Glen Campbell collections released over the years -- what's more, with only ten songs on the CD, there's not really any opportunity for even the least bit of adventurousness, just the most familiar material ("Wichita Lineman," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," "Galveston," "Southern Nights," etc.). But at least this comes from Capitol Records, as opposed to some of the material licensed from more recent live sources of Campbell's music, so one knows these are the classic songs. And as a 2003 release, it does have the virtue of using the latest remasterings on its songs -- and the cover art, front and back, featuring a pair of good photos of Campbell with his electric and acoustic guitars, is pretty cool.
