AllMusic Review by

Metro's The Country Collection is a 25-song hodgepodge mixing previously released Willie Nelson material originally on Liberty in the early '60s. Nelson's pre-outlaw incarnation is explored on "Happiness Lives Next Door," "Night Life," "Half a Man," and "Both Ends of the Candle." While these honky tonk tracks will appeal to fans of that genre, most casual listeners will want to stick with his later Columbia recordings.
