"This was the first Charlie McCoy record I'd bought. I didn't know that a harmonica could sound as beautiful as it does in the hands of Charlie McCoy. This record contains many of his best and most famous songs, for example Shenandoah and Orange Blossom Special. The last one takes your breath away (especially if you tries to play it). Charlie McCoy has been playing the harmonica for over 30 years and is heard as a backgroundplayer on many records by Elvis, Paul Simon, Kris Kristofferson mm. In my opinion, this record shows that Charlie McCoy is the best countryharpplayer there is. (But he can surely play the blues to -listen to the record "Harpin' The Blues") He has made almost 20 solo records and if you haven't heard him play I could really recommend this record - it's fabulous."
Charlie McCoy - Nashville's Bset Kept Secret

"Charlie McCoy has for decades been One of Nashville's best kept secrets. He has been appearing on hit after hit since the early 1960's by nearly every Country superstar imaginable. When you hear a harmonica chances are that it's either Charlie McCoy or somebody who wishes that they were Charlie McCoy.McCoy began making his own recordings in the late 1960's. First with the band Area Code 615, then as a solo artist. His "Greatest Hits" CD gives us a taste of his immense talent. Charlie spend most of this album showing his sweet side, showcasing the lilting, lyrical tone that has made so many of nashville's greatest sound good. The highlight of this album is his trademark "Orange Blossom Special". Normally a showcase for fiddlers, Charlie handles "Orange Blossom Special" like it was written for the harmonica. In fact, many rising Bluegrass harmonica players use the song to show how well they compare to Charlie.This is an excellent CD to start your collection of Charlie McCoy recordings."

"I will be very happy to give five stars plus for anything Charlie McCoy will play on the harmonica! I have listened to at least ten other harmonica players and non have come close to Charlie McCoy, in my opinion."
