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

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.

I wish I could say I really loved this CD. But it's actually not what I expected. Probably this is due to the fact that I was misled by the listing appearing on the page. What I was sent was the album KENNY ROGERS - 20 GREAT HITS. It includes indeed 20 tracks, but I wouldn't call them 'Great Hits.' The tracks that appear on this CD are the following:1.Ruby, don't take your love to town; 2.Poem for my little lady; 3.For the good times; 4.Good lady of Toronto; 5.Where does Rosie go; 6.Me and Bobby McGee; 7.What am I gonna do; 8.All Go's lovely children; 9.Lay it down; 10.Tulsa turnaround; 11.Sunshine; 12.Goodtime liberator; 13.Reuben James; 14.Always leaving, always gone; 15.Elvira; 16.Shine on Ruby Mountain; 17.Loser; 18.Homemade Lie; 19.Ticket to Nowhere; 20.Ruby, don't take your love to town

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!

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.

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.
