By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
I rarely buy multi-artist country compilations, but I was attracted to this particular compilation because although I I have a substantial collection of country music including a majority of what's here, there are plenty of tracks that I don't have elsewhere, as well as a few brilliant obscurities that I have but wouldn`t necessarily expend to find on a compilation like this. Those looking for a multi-artist hits collection with few obscurities should consider 101 Country Hits before committing themselves this set.

Although this budget 6-CD compilation was released by EMI and most of the tracks are from its own labels, there are a few tracks here from Sony/BMG too, so making this a very strong collection, at least from a British perspective. Many of the songs will be familiar to British country fans (and a fair number to British pop fans too) although some are represented by cover versions rather than the original artists.

With most of the tracks coming from the EMI vaults, Glen Campbell and Kenny Rogers are particularly well represented, but several artists are represented by three or more tracks including Juice Newton, Slim Whitman, Suzy Bogguss, Dr Hook, Billie Jo Spears, George Jones, Crystal Gayle, Lacy J Dalton, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Bobbie Gentry, Chris Ledoux, Tanya Tucker, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Deana Carter. Oddly, there are no Anne Murray or Merle Haggard tracks here, though the EMI vaults contain many of their big hits.

Country music arguably peaked in Britain during the seventies, when country singles regularly made the top ten in the pop charts.

The one thing that I do love about this compilation is that you get 122 pleasurable and classic country tracks that are formatted on a six cd set. The following are some of the songs that you can expect to see on this great country compilation:

Strawberry Wine-Deana Carter
You and I-Eddie Rabbit
Hey Good Lookin-The Nitty Gritty Band
The Most Beautiful Girl In the World-Charlie Rich
Annie's Song-John Denver
Let Your Love Flow-Del Reeves and Billie Jo Spears
Rhinestone Cowboy-Glenn Campbell
Angel of the Morning-Juice Newton

This compilation is worth purchasing if you enjoy listening to country music and/or you like to collect different music compilations from a variety of musical genres.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it, thank you ! 21 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
I love this, a great collection of old (that I've forgotten) and new songs. For this price it is a bargain compared to buying the songs I like, individually or loads of separate CDs. OK I do not like all the songs but there are more than enough to make this a worthwhile purchase.

This Collection of 122 Original Country Hits is the most outstanding value for money out there at the moment. If you enjoy singers like Jim Reeves, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette Dolly Parton Glen Campbell etc,. you will enjoy this superb collection on 6CDs. Go for it.

I bought this for my dad who is a c & w fan and owns lots of similar cds.
He is really pleased with it as it has all the songs he loves by original artists.
My dad is very fussy so if he is happy it MUST be good.
