Overview

This quality Australian collection from RCA collects 20 of country legend Willie Nelson's best-known songs, including "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys," "Poncho and Lefty," "Always on My Mind," "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," and "On the Road Again." Fans looking for a meatier overview of Nelson's long and productive career would be better off with Columbia's 41-track Essential Willie Nelson, but as far as single-disc anthologies go, this one's hard to beat.
