This is NOT REALLY the best of Bob Wills...
musiclover | Nashville, TN United States | 07/16/2004

"If you are new to Bob Wills, you should know that this album title is a lie. These recordings were made in Nashville toward the end of Bob's life, and they do not capture the authentic sound of Bob Wills and HIS TEXAS PLAYBOYS.The good stuff was recorded from 1935 to 1947 WITH HIS TEXAS PLAYBOYS. If you want the best of Bob Wills, buy something (anything) on Columbia or CBS. I also recommend Tiffany Transcriptions Volumes 2 and 3, but know that even those great albums are not his original classic Texas Playboys. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of his recordings on MGM or MCA."
His earlier stuff with the Playboys is much better

"The tracks on this album are later recordings of Bob Wills from 1965 until his death. They are, by and large, not recorded with the Playboys (though one or two show up on a few tracks). Instead of the 30's/40's West Texas sound I love, these recordings have something of a Vegas/Sinatra 60's feel to them, especially in the backing. I'd recommend The Essential Bob Wills or The Anthology instead."

"Best of Bob Wills is a must-have if you are a fan of Western Swing. The surprisingly smooth and laid-back sound is very relaxing, and the beat is very steady and danceable. Bob was way before his time."
