4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Album July 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a stranger to REK's music, but I will admit that I'm a relative newcomer. I'd say that I enjoy about half of this album, but the rest I can do without. Of course I love the standards, although the live version of 'The Road Goes on Forever' left a little to be desired.

On the other hand, 'For Love', which I'd never heard before, is an amazing song. Absolutely fantastic.

Newcomers should beware, however--on some of his songs he sounds like Dale Gribble from 'King of the Hill' when he sings. Takes some getting used to.

4.0 out of 5 stars REK's BEST October 13, 2010
By mike
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After finding out about Robert Earl Keen's music, he's definitely one of my top Texas musicians/songwriters. I don't know what it is about Texas song writers they just know where it's at.
This a very good collection of REK's work to date. (only one song I felt was missing from the "Best" and that is the "Front Porch Song")
So may the "Road Go On Forever and the Party Never End".

5.0 out of 5 stars For a true REK enthusiast January 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you love Robert Earl Keen, you'll love this Best Of collection. (I would not recommend it for anyone who is a newcomer to REK. Some of the tracks are live, and the first three are VERY old, and not as sophisticated in sound as his newer stuff.) I bought this for my boyfriend, who loves anything REK, and he hasn't stopped playing it for two weeks straight (literally!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good work from Robert Earl Keen... December 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I am a big fan, so my review will of course be biased, but I really enjoyed this CD. I especially enjoyed some of the live performances of my favorites. (I personally enjoy the live, more upbeat version of "Merry Christmas From The Family" better than the original.)

Anyway...if you like Robert Earl Keen's work (or would like to get to know it) you can't go wrong with this CD, in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best May 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
A good collection of some of REK's best songs. A fairly broad look at the different types of songs he's done, a solid intro to his music. A few live songs are here, and the choices for those are fitting:

7 Merry Christmas from the Family
8 The Road (Intro)
9 The Road Goes on Forever

16 Feeling Good Again
17 Gringo Honeymoon
18 I'm Comin' Home

All the other songs appear to be the original versions or so close that I can't really tell the difference.

And for the record, I believe REK is not "done". Three of these songs are from his last album in 2005. Of course, if it would goad Robert into putting out a new original album I'm all for saying he's over with :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The King of the Texas Music Scene!!! June 13, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
To me it does not get any better than Robert Earl Keen, when talking about Texas touring artist. His sound is unique and his lyrics are funny, catchy and clever. This Cd you just cannot go wrong with it has all his hits and then some. I am telling you if you want to hear Texas country sound you have found it.
