All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Hip-O's 2005 double-disc set Classic Country Gold casts a wide net. It begins with Hank Williams' 1951 hit "Hey, Good Lookin'" and ends with Patty Loveless' 1989 hit "Timber, I'm Falling in Love."

    2 CDs worth of great music

    These 2 CDs are like a time-travel through 4 decades of country music from the Universal, Capitol and RCA vaults, providing a history lesson of the artists who made country music what it is today such as Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Eddy Arnold and Kitty Wells. Although some major names who recorded for these labels aren't included (Jim Reeves, Buck Owens, George Strait, Alabama), there is plenty of great music to satisfy any country music fan
