Product Description

Willie Nelson ~ 16 Biggest Hits

Amazon.com

A greatest-hits package from an artist who thrived on concept albums is a frightening proposition. Even the liner notes refer to him as the "all-time #1 country album artist." To top it off, much of Nelson's best work--Yesterday's Wine, Shotgun Willie, and Phases And Stages, for example--was commercially unsuccessful (not to mention on a different label). While Red-Headed Stranger and Stardust did make commercial inroads, they're best digested as single entities. With all that said, these Columbia chart toppers, which span from 1975 to 1989, still make for enchanting listening. By illustrating Nelson in his various moods---pop standards, honky tonk, cowboy, folk, gospel---it provides a worthwhile introduction, and will help newcomers decide where to move next. --Marc Greilsamer

This is a great collection of Willie's best songs. However, it leaves off the classic "Poncho & Lefty" without adding anything essential in return. For my money, Columbia's "Super Hits" collection is the best Willie Nelson sampler on the market.

If I were to recommend one Willie Nelson CD to have in my car it would be this one. Not one boring song on the whole CD. Willie is a unique singer who seems to have a talent for attracting listeners from all walks of life, ethnic, racial, etc leanings. Classy guy in my book and dang fun to boot.

This album would be a good introduction to the Red Headed Stranger for anyone who wasn't familiar with his work. I would imagine this would include anyone living under a rock for the past 40+ years. The album includes many of his standards, and in particular, two of my favorites, "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain," and "Always On My Mind." I was a little disappointed that they chose a live cut for "Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground." In my opinion live tracks should be reserved for entirely live albums, but that is more of a personal taste than anything else. If you're just looking for a greatest hits album of Willie's I would recommend picking up his boxed set, but this is certainly full of some good music too.

These are some of the best songs ever written. Willie delivers these in such a way that it soothes the soul and pleases the ear.

I always have dug Willie Nelson.His Take of "Georgia on My Mind" is Great."Always on My Mind" is Great Here.His&Elvis's Version are my favorites of that song.I Also dig "On The Road Again".I Wish Willie's Version of "StarDust" was here?but Nevertheless a Strong Set.
