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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it Possible to Wear Out a CD ? May 11, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Willie Nelson's The Very Best of Willie May 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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?

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.
