AllMusic Review by

Country Routes would have you believe that 20 Country Hits compiles the Decca hit versions, since original chart dates and positions are given. The liner notes go so far as to state that "this...collection provides a retrospective of two decades of the best country music recordings" of Warner Mack. In reality, the package consists of re-recordings of ten of Mack's hits from the late '50s through the early '70s. Furthermore, the remaining ten songs are recordings of obscure originals and non-hits by other songwriters. In short, this package deliberately misleads consumers. Even as re-recordings go, these versions are poor, suffering from muddy sound and lackluster performances.
