AllMusic Review by

Since this two-CD Andrews Sisters hits compilation was released by PMF in the U.K. in 1994, the same year that MCA released the two-CD Andrews Sisters hits compilation Their All-Time Greatest Hits in the U.S., a comparison is inevitable. Both sets feature the sisters' most popular recordings, but the MCA album, at 46 tracks, contains seven more than The Collection. The MCA album has excellent remastered sound that is superior to that on The Collection. The MCA album contains thorough annotations including an essay based on interviews with two of the sisters, but The Collection has no annotations at all beyond a list of the songs and their songwriters. In short, although The Collection is a good compilation, there is no reason to recommend its purchase while Their All-Time Greatest Hits remains in print.
