AllMusic Review by

Clocking in at less than 30 minutes, this 10-track, budget-priced collection is a concise sampler of Conway Twitty hits. Although the absence of liner notes makes the recording info unclear, these popular singles (including the rock-&-roll ballad "It's Only Make Believe," the pleading "As Soon As I Hang Up the Phone," and the wistful "Hello Darlin'") encompass the entirety of the Mississippi-born country-pop crooner's remarkably long heyday from the late 1950s to the early '80s. While this compilation's brevity may be frustrating to some, its crisp remastered sound makes it the perfect selection for those seeking a short, solid overview of Twitty's finest moments.
