AllMusic Review by

This straightforward hits collection contains all 16 of Loretta Lynn's number one country hits according to Billboard, five of them duets with Conway Twitty, plus three number two hits and three number three hits, all released originally between 1964 and 1979. The singer also scored one other number two hit, the Twitty duet "I Still Believe in Waltzes" from 1981, and several other number three hits, as well as numerous other major songs that are not included. Some of them could have fit on a CD that runs less than 57 and a half minutes, but from a record company point of view the issue is less the time than the number of tracks, since song publishers must be paid royalties on each title. That makes 22 tracks (none of which run longer than three minutes and 15 seconds) a packed disc from a profit perspective, even if consumers wonder why the album isn't more complete. As it is, there are enough of Lynn's big records to justify the title and make this a good purchase for anyone seeking a single-disc hits collection.
