AllMusic Review by

Considering the rate at which Bill Anderson released LPs in his heyday (roughly three a year, often one for each of his hit singles), even fans might not expect too much from his album tracks. Always Remember confounds expectations not only because it is a very good album, but because it achieves this out of seemingly ordinary materials. The three songs by Kris Kristofferson and one by Kenny Rogers show Anderson embracing the "new" country music, but his plain vocal style confers an aura of honesty and unaffectedness that really benefits over-exposed titles like "Help Me Make It Through the Night." Anderson's five originals are all worthwhile, and the title track became a Top Ten country hit, in addition to "bubbling under" the pop charts.
