AllMusic Review by

Don Williams didn't rock the boat, he just sang the song with straightforward sincerity, and his signature songs like "I Believe in You," "Tulsa Time," "It Must Be Love," and "Lay Down Beside Me" have an endearing timelessness because of it -- along with J.J. Cale, he practically built the template that Eric Clapton would follow in the middle years of his own solo career. This generous single-disc set collects Williams' most essential sides, spotlighting his warm voice, gentle nature, and easygoing, emotionally sincere way with a ballad, and includes all of the songs above plus 21 others built of the same durable fabric.
