Editorial Reviews

Kenny Rogers is a country/pop crossover star of epic proportions whose solo breakthroughs in the late 70s just hinted at the greatness and longevity to come. He faithfully blends all American music-pop, country, soul and gospel-garnering fans in every decade with his easy-going style and warm personality.
Now, in celebration of his first fifty years in the music business, Time Life is proud to release The First 50 Years, a 3-CD box set of Kenny's greatest hits, plus three new songs only found in this release, including a new duet with Dolly Parton.
The box set will feature three themed discs: DUETS, STORY SONGS and LOVE SONGS. Every disc features original versions of his well-known hits, some of Kenny's personal favorites, plus one new recording per disc!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Kenny , always have and always will. bought this box set for the 3 previously unreleased songs and I am glad I did, like all his music , it rocks. Kenny is the King and always will be. Despite his plastic surgery , as his song from 2006 says "I can't unlove you " Kenny.If you are just beginning to appreciate Kenny then this is for you, plenty of variety and plenty of quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kenny's First 50 Years November 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Kenny Rogers fan for a long time,and like probably most of you reading this have a lot of his cds & lps, including the previous box set "Through The Years". Time Life has done a pretty decent job in selecting the material for this box and I think that most people will be pleased with this. The original versions of the songs have never sounded better and I do like the way they've broken them down into 3 discs. The duets disc features some great tracks that were not necessarily singles but gives you a great feel for Kenny's music overall. I wasn't aware of the Tim McGraw track Or the Travis Tritt songs really before this box set. The new track with Dolly, "Tell Me That You Love Me", was the main reason for me buying this and I'm very glad I did. This is an excellent choice for someone who's just now starting to appreciate Kenny's music and will show he's got another 50 years ahead for sure, if we're all lucky! Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this project, sit back and enjoy the hits and great cd/lp tracks from a true master at the top of his game!

5.0 out of 5 stars kenny still going strong after 50 years of music making January 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kenny Rogers has maintained one of the longest and most successful careers in the music business by showing off a diverse and eclectic range of music styles from jazz, country-pop, folk, and everything in between. This box set is divided into three discs by mood, including duets with a wide range of singers from Don Henley of the Eagles to Dolly and Dottie, two of his favorite and most awarded singing partners. The three discs also contain one new recording each, including a surprisingly strong number with Dolly Parton that could be a hit single if modern country radio was not so age biased. Disc two features story songs including Rogers penchant for choosing some of the best and most original material the best songwriters in Nashville could offer. Disc three offers the love songs Rogers is so noted for like Lady, She Believes In Me and the underrated and jazzy Morning Desire, one of Rogers 21 number one singles on the country charts. The remastered sound on 50 Years is crisp and clean and his gravelly, but evocative voice has never sounded better. Another true highlight of the set is Rogers cover of Lionel Richie's Goodbye, sung with passion and grit as only Kenny can do in his unique but soothing vibrato. A nice booklet accompanys the package with an insightful essay by colin Escott.

Hands down this is the best collection of Kenny's music you are going to find. All of the tracks are grouped into three categories.
Duets, Love Songs and Story Songs. This is very effective and groups the songs into three wonderful discs. I found this to be a wonderful overview of Kenny's Career. If you want more than the standard 15 songs greatest hit collection this set it for you. It is still a greatest hits collection but digs much deeper over three disc of music. It all comes in a nice fold out digipak with 24 page booklet and liner notes by Colin Escott. Time Life did a great job on this collection. The First 50 Years is wonderful now we are ready for the next 50.

This CD set was a gift, so I haven't heard it myself. I did get very positive feedback from the recipient, however, who thinks it's great. I did note that this set contains the largest number of most popular songs, which is the reason I chose it.

While his latest eye-lift may not have worked out all that well, his voice is still the rich baritone flavor of his youth. I highly recommend this CD set.
