Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
While this is a fine collection of Arthur Alexander's Dot work and his early singles for Judd, the name Greatest Hits is a bit of a misnomer; Rainbow Road: The Warner Bros. Recordings is a more comprehensive look at Alexander's career as a whole. However, what Greatest Hits lacks in breadth it more than makes up for in depth, gathering classics like "Anna Go to Him," "Go Home Girl," "You Better Move On," and "Where Have You Been All My Life" -- all of which capture the bittersweet soulfulness of Alexander's best-known work -- as well as less well-known songs like 1962's "Dream Girl."
