AllMusic Review by

This is a single-disc 18-track compilation of Jim Reeves material from the 1940s and '50s. Considering it opens with "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You" and the sound is fair, it's off to a good start. The rest contains hits and misses but some wonderful choices like the title track, of course, but also Reeves' rave-up of Woody Guthrie's "Oklahoma Hills," Ernest Tubb's "Wind-Up Doll," Johnny Horton's "Til The End of the World," Wesley Rose's "Roly Poly," and Jack Greene's "I Love You More." Far from definitive, this is still a nicely priced compilation showcasing Reeves' uncanny diversity and range.
