FAKE JOB FROM THE ORIGINAL ARTIST
(1 out of 5 stars)
"I got tricked into thinking this was the newest, remastered, and most comprehensive Goldsboro anthology there is. Instead I got newly recorded fake versions of the original. Saddest is Goldsboro being an active participant in the project, and he didn't bother to make it more respectable (it even comes without a booklet!) What I don't get the most is they've used real strings and drums, and Goldsboro's vocal was fine, but it was utterly spoiled by cheesy synth embellishments. Get the Honey compilation, or better still, the Honey/Summer two-for-one remastered CD from the UK...don't get this substitute."
NOT the original recordings.
(2 out of 5 stars)
"FYI--these are not the original hit recordings, but newly recorded by BG. Liner notes state: "All tracks were digitally mastered and RECORDED at the Soundshop Studios, Nashville, Tennessee, February 1999." Look for another collection if you are looking for his original hit versions."
Refreshing versions of hit songs
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a collection of 21 hits performed (and most of them written) by Bobby Goldsboro. They aren't the original hit versions, but most changes are subtle and a refreshing change to the originals commonly found on CDs. Compared to early recordings, Bobby's voice sounds more refined on this CD. A favorite remake of this reviewer is "Broomstick Cowboy". The remake sounds cleaner than the original with a better piano arrangement. On the other hand, the original arrangement of "Little Green Apples" is preferred. Fans will find something they like on this CD. For this fan, the "Collections" CD sits right next to the "Classic" CD (Honey: The Best Of Bobby Goldsboro). The "Collections" CD gets listened to more often."
