AllMusic Review by

The 20-track Vintage compilation contains nine of Jimmy Wakely's biggest hits, including "One Has My Name (The Other Has My Heart)," "I Love You So Much it Hurts," "Till the End of the World," "I Wish I Had A Nickel," "Mona Lisa," plus three of his most popular duets with Margaret Whiting: "Slipping Around," "Wedding Bells," and "When You and I Were Young Maggie Blues." The remainder of the collection consists of lesser-known, but equally good, selections, as well as five unreleased cuts designed to lure in hard-core collectors. Fortunately, the unreleased songs are worthwhile, and help to add to the image of Wakely as one of the great singing cowboys of the late '40s and early '50s, which, in turn, makes Vintage a first-rate retrospective.
