AllMusic Review by

This is one of Legacy's standard hodgepodges of performances by a big-name legendary performer. As this goes, however, that's hardly a bad thing. These 11 cuts represent Charley Pride as a diverse and very gifted performer. Pride's now classic read of "Kiss an Angel Good Morning" is here -- in a live version -- and so are his versions of songs by everyone from Hank Williams ("Kaw-Liga") to Doug Kershaw ("Louisiana Man") to Dallas Frazier ("There Goes My Everything"). The music is wonderful and for once the sound measures up, too. This is a great and very inexpensive way to hear the work of one of America's utterly unsung country music performers.
