AllMusic Review by Al Campbell

Ray Stevens' Collection is a comprehensive single-disc overview of the cornball comedy jester. Original crossover hits from the '60s and '70s, like "Ahab the Arab," "Gitarzan," and "The Streak," are paired up with his country radio hits from the '80s, "Mississippi Squirrel Revival," "Shriner's Convention," and "It's Me Again Margaret." Closing out the disc is "Everything Is Beautiful," the Stevens-penned international chart-topper from 1971.
