AllMusic Review by

Charlie Daniels has had a long career by mixing country and Southern rock into a pop/country crossover blend, and thanks to his flashy fiddle playing and sense of showmanship, sides like 1979's "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" have become perennial favorites on jukeboxes and country and rock radio stations everywhere. This two-disc set includes "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," of course, as well as other Daniels hits like "The South's Gonna Do It Again," "Still in Saigon," and "American Farmer," among others, as well as key album tracks, to make for an in-depth look at his legacy, and it's sure to please casual fans looking for the big sides and a little bit more.
