AllMusic Review by

Rhino's budget-priced, ten-track Classic Western Swing contains the hit versions of such Bob Wills staples as "San Antonio Rose," "Time Changes Everything," "Faded Love," "Roly-Poly," "Steel Guitar Rag," "My Window Faces the South," "Take Me Back to Tulsa," "Stay a Little Longer," "Big Beaver" and "Cherokee Maiden." There isn't any historical perspective on the disc, nor does it give a true sense of Wills' greatness, but for any casual listener who just wants the big hits -- or the neophyte reluctant to spend more than eight dollars on a disc -- this works just fine.
