They say that timing’s everything in bluegrass music. If that’s so, Alan Jackson’s is just right. “I probably started thinking about the bluegrass album sometime in the mid-‘90s,” the iconic country singer and songwriter explains. “But O Brother, Where Art Thou? came along, a couple of other country artists were ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware! You May Already Have This CD April 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This CD appears to be identical to his 2010 CD titled 34 NUMBER ONES, which actually has 37 tracks. If you already have that CD, you do not need this one. Why does Sony do this? They have done the same thing with The Essential Brooks & Dunn, which is the same Cd as #1'S AND THEN SOME.

Yes, this is a re-release of 34 NUMBER ONES under a different name. If you do a little research about Alan Jackson, you will find out that he changed recording labels. Therefore, 34 NUMBER ONES can't be released under the same name anymore. 34 NUMBER ONES is out of circulation. It has been re-released under this new name. It's not a rip-off. Come on! Give Alan some credit for being a great singer and true to country music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Collection for the newcomer! July 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Alan Jackson will join Hank Williams in time as one of the greatest ever, and if you want to know why, you just have to listen to this CD.

I think anyone who buys an album without checking the tracklist is a fool to themselves. I think this is a fair release even, if its a straight reissue. The only time I would say an album is total greed is when there is a Greatest Hits release, with a single or couple of new tracks. Thankfully this is not one of those cases!

Looking at the tracks how can this be anything but 5 stars?!? If you didn't have another AJ CD this would be great. If like me, you have all his releases, you should check the tracklist before deciding. I have all the songs but its still a 5 star release.

Before I bought this CD, I did my homework. YES, this CD is the same as "34 Number Ones," but what would you rather have on the front of your CD, a big ol' Number 1, or a picture of Alan Jackson??? How can people downgrade this CD because they bought it and discovered it was too similar to "34 Number Ones?" They obviously failed to do their homework and their negative reviews are not a fair assessment of the music on this CD. Anyways...

I used to cringe when I heard country music. I don't know why; I just didn't care for the sound. Then I heard, "Remember When." Oh, my, goodness. That song cut straight to my heart, and I had to hear more of Alan. I'm so glad I gave him a chance. My kids make fun of me because I listen to these CDs every day now. (Yet they sing along and want to come to his concert with me.) Two CD's, how perfect! One for the kitchen and one for singin' along in the shower. The CDs are very country, but I am beginning to appreciate the different instruments and the glimpses of Alan's life that he incorporates into his songs. Some of the songs are fun, some are thoughtful, and all of them...sung with that smooth, mellow voice. The songs have a way of sinking into your heart, mind and soul, and you catch yourself singing them always. So, here's the warning: When you least expect it, you may catch yourself singing, "Where I come from, it's cornbread and chicken..." :)

His songs will touch your heart and lift your spirits. "The Essential Alan Jackson" is great overall, a really good price for a great collection.

Alan is one of the best. Not only is his singing great, but I love his guitar pickers. His music reflects many different moods and is great all-around entertainment.
