Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This robust collection is as good a place as any to start for those interested in revisiting Kenny Rogers's long, glorious run on the country and pop charts through the 1970s and early 1980s. It includes early countrified milestone hits like "Lucille" and "The Gambler," as well as later pop-flavored outings like "Lady" and "You Decorated My Life." It's rounded out with a sampling of the smooth pop duets he recorded with leading ladies like Sheena Easton ("We've Got Tonight"), Kim Carnes ("Don't Fall in Love with a Dreamer"), and the late Dottie West ("'Till I Can Make It on My Own"). All told, this is among the strongest of the many single-CD compilations that have been culled from Rogers's long, prolific, and varied career. --Bob Allen

5.0 out of 5 stars The best single CD of Kenny's music October 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This collection is compiled from Kenny's most successful period - the years from 1976 to 1983 when he recorded for United Artists. As such, it does not include Islands in the stream or any of the other music he recorded for RCA after he left United Artists. To get that, you must buy a separate collection of his RCA music, or go for the boxed set that includes everything that matters, and which I've already reviewed, or buy a Dolly Parton compilation (plenty of those include the song).
The recordings of Ruby don't take your love to town, Reuben James and Something's burning are not the originals that Kenny recorded with the First Edition - these are re-recordings that Kenny made in 1977, originally for the compilation LP titled Ten years of gold. However, there re-re-recordings are as good as the originals but slightly more polished. To get the originals of those three songs, you need a Kenny Rogers and the First edition compilation or the boxed set already mentioned. The remaining seventeen songs are the original recordings of the hits that Kenny had on the country and pop charts in the late seventies and early eighties, several of which became international hits.
Two of these songs - Lucille (my favorite Kenny Rogers song) and Coward of the county, became UK number one pop hits - they were also top five pop hits in America. Kenny also took the original version of Ruby don't take your love to town to number two in the UK in 1969 - it was also a top ten American hit. Something's burning and Lady were also major UK hits. None of the other songs here made much impact in the UK charts, but Kenny had many more hits in the American pop charts, including The gambler, She believes in me, You decorated by life and I don't need you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Kenny Rogers Collection You'll Need August 6, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful collection of Kenny's long string of hits and not a bad apple in the bunch. Whether with The First Edition or on his own, the man had the golden touch and crossed over onto the pop and country charts when these songs were new. If you get the chance to see him perform in concert GO!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality sucks August 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Great songs, Kenny Rogers is great. But the sound is terrible - recorded straight from a 20 year old portable cassette player onto CD is what it sounds like. Save your dough and avoid.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good CD December 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am not a huge Kenny Rogers fan, but he did some quality songs such as "Coward Of The County", "Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town", "Love Will Turn You Around", "We Got Tonight" (Although Bob Seger's version is better), and of course "The Gambler". You get all the Rogers you will need except "Islands In The Stream". It is a worthwhile CD to have in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! August 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best album of all Kenny Rogers's albums. Through The Years is the best song that is ever written. When I listen to this album, I can feel the melody and comprehend the lyrics. This album definitely becomes one of my music collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE KING OF POP COUNTRY!!!! July 24, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
An excellent overview of the career of Kenny Rogers. Every song is a classic but my 2 favorites are the Gambler and Lady. More country stations should be playing his music instead of the latest cowboy hunk of the month. Kenny rules!!

I bought this for my brother who lives in a group home. He loves this CD; in fact, the reason I bought this was that he wore out the previous one he had. He's happy now.
