Format: Audio CD
Tammy's fans know that one (or even two) CD's cannot contain all her country classics, but this compilation is brilliant. It contains all the absolutely essential solo hits, a reasonable selection of her other country hits and a good sample of her recordings with others.
The essential solo tracks are Stand by your man, D-I-V-O-R-C-E, I don't wanna play house and Till I can make it on my own. Among the other solo tracks, my favorites include Take me to your world, Your good girl's gonna go bad, You and me, Woman to woman and Womanhood. These tracks are not always included on Tammy's compilations - indeed, Womanhood didn't even get into the Tears of Fire boxed set of Tammy's music - so it's great to see them all here.
Three duets with George Jones are included. I would have chosen Two story house instead of Near you, but I have no complaints, as anybody who wants all Tammy and George's duets can find them elsewhere. Also included are superb covers of Sometimes when we touch (with Mark Gray), Every breath you take (with Sting, who originally recorded the song as lead singer of Police) and Silver threads and golden needles (with Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn). Her first duet hit, My elusive dreams (with David Houston) is also here.
The collection ends with Justified and ancient, her huge worldwide hit of the late eighties, which saw her singing with the KLF. Apparently this was number one in 18 countries. It was number two in the UK and also did well in America. This track is substantially different from Tammy's other music, but if you don't like it you can always hit stop when you reach it. With 26 other tracks, nobody can have any cause for complaint.

Not really too much to say here. All of Tammy's greatest hits are here in their rightful place. The songs themselves are wearing well, and the timeless classics sound as good today as when her hair was so big God himself used to reach down and backcomb it for her. My favourite song of Wynette's is Til I Can Make It On My Own, a plaintive ballad about a woman who is telling her ex that she may be leaning on him from time to time. It's one of her finest songs, and definitely one of her finest vocal performances. She had a hard life, and was on top of her game musically when she died so tragically. An excellent introduction to Wynette and a great country album in itself.

This is an excellent compilation of tracks by Tammy Wynette. She has recorded more than enough material to make a double album, but it is good to have just one disc with a good variety of tracks on it.
This CD offers the biggest hits of TammyWynette along with some of the most popular tracks from her albums. The whole compilation acts as a good introduction to, or representative of the work of Tammy Wynette.
All of the recordings are original studio tracks and there are no live versions or re recordings. The sound is excellent and the CD presentation is nice.
Generally speaking this is a fabulous compilation of a unique performer.

I purchased this album after I saw a documentary on Tammy Wynette. It showcases most of her hits and makes a brilliant collection for any Tammy fan. I have since bought other 'best of' Tammy Wynette compilation CDs but this is the best on a single CD album in my opinion.
