Perhaps his superb three-CD box Revolutions of Time is a bit out of your price range. Maybe his 16 Biggest Hits collection feels a bit slight. This two-CD set works as a fair compromise between the two, although it lacks any discographical information or liner notes. Still, the music here is mostly breathtaking and is varied and balanced enough to provide a clear sense of Nelson's numerous strengths: a deft songwriting flair, a respect for country's traditions, a distinctive nasal twang, and a wonderful touch and feel on his gut-string guitar. --Marc Greilsamer

There are a lot of Willie Nelson compilations out there, but this one is hard to beat. It is a rich, pithy collection of his absolute best material. Although I personally own 15 of Willie's cds, this is the one I bring with me on the road. Everyone should have this album in his/her collection.

The answer is no, because my copy of "The Very Best of Willie Nelson" would be. The more you listen the more you realize that what may be taken initially as simple music is actually layered in beauty. Don't miss this one.

Very Best of Willie Nelson
Have loved Willie for 30 years and just add to my collection whenever I can. Not a fan of CW music, but then Willie is unique unto himself.

My favorite song is, "There's nothing I can do about it now." But this CD is packed with Willie's finest.

Various of Willie's songs of this album have been reviewed in detail by the editors and customers elsewhere in amazon.com, and I'll just say that On the Road Again and Pancho are some of the reasons why Willie Nelson is one of the three greatest people in the history of Country Music, in my opinion. They call these Outlaw Country. I call them Spirit of the Law Country. Letter of the Law asks where, who, what, when, how. Spirit of the Law asks why. Which one do you think gets the answer?

It should say: The Very Best EVER of Willie - This is absolutely beyond fantastic! Can't say enough about the sound quality! Got my 85yr.old Mama a copy too - she's so afraid someone will steal it from her in the Nursing Home! They do that a lot. She replaced the Willie CD's with the New Testiment CD's in the Willie sleeve...You GO MAMA - THEY GOT THE BIBLE CDs (& for SURE NEEDED them!)LMAO!!!!! I Love You Mama - ain't a THING wrong w/ your mind sweetie....kisses....xoxo...Baby Girl1 - Oh yeah - this happens all the time! Mom is at: Berkshire Nursing Facility, 705 Clearview Dr., Vinton, Va. 24179...... Jacqueline Lafon' Rm.45 if anyone wants to send her anything to compensate. They did achieve stealing her gold Cross. She loves music....Please do what you'd like - please "pay It Forward" Thanks & God Bless each of you!...xoxo....Patty Sayers (on FB) C Ya' !
