Greatest Hits [Primo]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett

This budget two-disc, 40-track collection brings together some of Paul's solo sides as well as sides he did with his wife and singing partner, Mary Ford, and while this set is pretty bare-bones as far as annotation, it demonstrates Paul's (and Ford's) unique contribution to pop music at an affordable price.
