AllMusic Review by

The 3.0 series collects the biggest hits and songs from major pop artists along with select album tracks and live performances on two discs with a third, shorter bonus disc of additional tracks added in, which means, in the case here, one gets a pretty fair survey of Charlie Daniels' recording career. All his epic narrative and trademark proto-spoken rap songs are here, including “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” “Still in Saigon,” “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” and “American Farmer,” along with key album tracks, making this a great portrait of an artist who managed to combine the best of country and Southern rock into a seamless package -- all while playing some pretty impressive fiddle.
