Don gibson- 18 greatest hits

(1 out of 5 stars)
"1. The tracks on this CD are not the orginal hit recordings.
2. If you buy on this basis, you'll be disappointed.
3. You'll be able to tell from the very first track that these
were cuts from recording secessions they didn't originally
plan on releasing."
Ain't It Always Like That?
Eclectic Revisited | Arizona | 12/09/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)
"You finally get all the songs you want to hear from a certain recording artist and there's a passel of remakes in it? Sure, the songs have a charm of their own done again years later, but some people (like myself) remember every little nuanace of a favorite song, a small note on the guitar, the singer going a little higher on a certain note, etc. that recalled a time or times back when, when you and that special person were listening to the song when it was new. If you don't care about such little things, sure, the songs are good, yes, they are, so buy it. We ARE talking Don Gibson after all."
Some RCA Remakes, some Hickory Classics

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Don Gibson had 27 charted records while recording for Hickory or Hickory/ABC. This CD picks up 7 or 8 of his Hickory hits, with the rest being remakes of his RCA successes. The remakes are well worth being heard, but I'd really like to see a decent collection focusing the Hickory hits. Gibson's last top ten for RCA had occurred in 1966 except for a pair duets with Dottie West. The switch to Hickory in 1970 revitalized his career with "Country Green" going to #5 in 1971, "Woman (Sensuous Woman)" reaching #1 in 1972 and several more top 15 tunes."
