AllMusic Review by Thom Jurek

This brief (only 33 minutes) "best-of" is actually merely ten songs collected from Floyd Cramer's recordings in the 1970s. There is nothing particularly wrong with them -- his style is trademark for its ostinato trills in the high register and that's all here -- but these are not Floyd Cramer's classics. They may be his best recordings of that decade -- nice renditions of John Denver's "Annie's Song," Dan Fogelberg's "Longer," and Marvin Hamlisch's "To All the Girls I've Loved Before," (etc.) -- but they aren't as fine as his work in the 1960s.
