This 32-minute budget sampler of Eddy Arnold songs essentially represents an entire subgenre that has come to be known as "Countrypolitan." That means the singer is suspended in a cloud of Nashville pop production that typifies those inescapably accessible trends in country music that dominated entire portions of the entertainment industry during the late 1960s and throughout the '70s and '80s. Indeed a song like "The Green, Green Grass of Home" might well constitute proof that one-time "Tennessee Plowboy" Eddy Arnold served as a role model for Jim Nabors.

It comforts, soothes, calms, and reassures while appealing to emotional sensibilities that most people carry somewhere in their hearts.
