Super Hits, Vol. 5 is a ten-track, budget-line hodgepodge featuring hits from Dobie Gray ("Drift Away"), Skeeter Davis ("The End of the World"), the Box Tops ("Cry Like a Baby"), Percy Sledge ("When a Man Loves a Woman") and Sandy Posey ("Born a Woman"), among others. There's country, R&B, soul, pop and rock, all gathered together for no particular reason. That alone would make the disc of marginal interest, but since the sound is muddy, the packaging is poor, and several cuts sound like they may be re-recordings, this disc is one to pass on.
