AllMusic Review by

The Great Years is another Pearl Flapper collection with a few rarer sides, but mostly Crosby standards from the 1930s and early '40s. It includes several Western selections ("Deep in the Heart of Texas," "You Are My Sunshine," "Walking the Floor over You," "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" and "Along the Santa Fe Trail"), plus standards like "White Christmas," "Where the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day" and "Road to Morocco." Some of the rarities are "I Want My Mama," "Let's All Meet at My House," "Miss You" and "Mister Meadowlark" (with Johnny Mercer).
