AllMusic Review by

This 2004 Willie Nelson Collection from Sony is nowhere near as grand as Columbia/Legacy's four-disc One Hell of a Ride box set or even 2003's excellent two-disc Essential Willie Nelson anthology, but as a single-disc overview, it's not half bad. There are some obvious omissions ("Hello Walls," "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys," "Georgia on My Mind"), but it's got "On the Road Again," "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys," "Always on My Mind," and "Poncho and Lefty, which has to count for something.
