This is simply the GREATEST CD I have listened to in a long time! Every song is a winner!

This is the best collection available from B&N. Only two of Gene's best are missing: "Farewell Party" and "Should I Come Home" are not included. However, "Ultimate Collection" is the best of the best! Gene's top four hits including his #1 and #2 recordings are included. Two other hit collections, "18 Greatest Hits" (missing his #1 & #2) and Mike Curb's "Best of Gene Watson" (has Gene's top seven hits not included) fail to match the ultimate track selections. Therefore, this CD is his ultimate collection available from B&N. Bob Jones, Arizona 6-28-11.
