AllMusic Review by

Time-Life's Classic Country: The '80s collects 20 classic tracks of the genre, including "That's the Way Love Goes" (Merle Haggard), "Elvira" (Oak Ridge Boys), "(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" (Ronnie Milsap), "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool" (Barbara Mandrell), and "Slow Hand" (Conway Twitty). It's not a definitive overview of country-pop hits of the era, but it's still a nice sampler of original hits.
