AllMusic Review by

This set of rerecorded favorites collects 20 of country legend Porter Wagoner's greatest hits, including his breakthrough 1954 song "A Satisfied Mind" and his signature '60s hit "The Carroll County Accident." Though these later recordings don't quite have the magic of the originals, Wagoner's evergreen vocals are a guaranteed stamp of authenticity. There's a duet with the ubiquitous Willie Nelson on the gospel classic "When the Silver Eagle Meets the Great Speckled Bird," and of course no Porter Wagoner best-of would be complete without his version of the unforgettable prison song, "Green, Green Grass of Home."
