AllMusic Review by

Curb's Classics by Willie Nelson is a 14-song collection mixing previously released material with demo-quality tracks. Nelson's pre-outlaw incarnation is explored on "Three Days," "Crazy," "I Gotta Get Drunk," and "Half a Man," along with two duets featuring Patsy Cline, "Just Out of Reach" and "Just a Closer Walk with Thee." The only post-Columbia material is the classic "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" and an excellent rendition of "Heartbreak Hotel," with Leon Russell.
