Format: Audio CD
This two-disc set contains the original versions of 39 country hits that Ronnie Milsap recorded for RCA between 1974 and 1989. During that 15-year period, no one else hit the top of the charts as often as Milsap - or even came close. It's a testament to the diversity of his vocal and song-selecting talents.

Those diverse classics include pure pop ("Pure Love," "Smokey Mountain Rain"), polished honkytonkers ("Daydreams About Night Things," "I'm A Stand By My Woman Man,"), stone country weepers ("Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends," "Nobody Likes Sad Songs"), bluesy tributes ("What A Difference You've Made In My Life"), and adult contemporary fare ("It Was Almost Like A Song"). Toward the end of his hit-making tenure, Milsap dwelled on nostalgia with a successful remake of the `50s favorites "Happy, Happy Birthday Baby," as well as the vintage sounding "Lost In The Fifties Tonight." Milsap also proved to be an excellent collaborator, pairing up with Kenny Rogers on the Grammy winning chart-topper "Make No Mistake She's Mine."

In addition to the original hits, we get a live version of "Let My Love Be Your Pillow" (the studio version is available on 2004's Ultimate Ronnie Milsap). The vast majority of these recordings are also included on Milsap's 40 # 1 Hits from 2000. That one is a slightly stronger set that is currently out of print, but worth seeking out.

Format: Audio CD
Ronnie Milsap had 59 hits that reached the Top 40 of the Country charts between 1973 and 1993. Six of his hits also crossed over and hit the Top 40 of the Pop charts. This 2 CD set has forty of those hits, and is the most complete collection currently available. Unfortunately, the mastering of this set is not as good as the mastering of the single CD "Ultimate Ronnie Milsap". The "Ultimate" CD has better-defined bass and brighter highs--the "Essential" set is dull by comparison. If you need all forty songs, then "Essential" is truly that, but "Ultimate" is the better choice for the casual fan. For the true fanatic, get both.

Format: Audio CD
This set of Ronnie's recordings is similar to the Virgin 40 #1's released a few years ago and I'd say the mastering of this set rivals the Virgin release. The difference here is this set is sequenced by style rather that chronology which keeps the music fresh. Ronnie's work with his post RCA association with Libery, Virgin, and Image are mentioned in the liner notes but sadly not one track from those projects is included on this set which would have made the whole thing a tad stronger and certainly more comprehensive; what is here however is a fine collection of his 70's and 80's radio staples and it's well worth the money.

I bought this cd along with other country stars for my mother in law. She loved it so much she played it over and over. Now the end of it is corrupted, but she wont let me send it back for a return.

She can't bear to be without it for the time it would take for a replacement!

She is a diehard country fan, so I was surprised she wanted it, but she will probably play it until it is completely ruined.

This is a very good compilation of most of the music I remembered. The clarity of his voice is timeless. Good old country music.

I didn't realize I had nothing in my library from him. Forgotten how many hits he has had! Good stuff.

Good track. I have that CD. However, it's track four, not three. Can you check the playlist beforehand beginning an unnecessary argument, please? Thanks. Don't worry though; we're human. We make mistakes. We shouldn't expect ourselves to be perfect; only God is perfect.
