"This CD reissue of a 1970 RCA LP, mastered by remastering genius Steve Hoffman from DCC Compact Classics, did a great job mastering this album of 12 of his best including "Tennessee Stud," the only song he recorded in the the 1950's and is a wonderful ballad about a race horse written by Jimmie Driftwood while the rest of this compilation was recorded from 1967-1970, "Turn The World Around," "Misty Blue," "All The Time," "Somebody Like Me," "Tip of My Fingers," and many more classics making this sound top notch and well done. While the first volume of "The Best of Eddy Arnold" contains several re-recordings while still worth buying, this has no re-recordings whatsoever making this a true must have for all fans of his music no matter how big a fan you are from casual fans to collectors. The snare drum at the beginning of "Turn The World Around" on this CD sounds as clear as a bell unlike the original LP of this song entitled "Turn The World Around" making this CD having the best sounding copy of the song hands down. All tracks are stereo, no remixing done and all in all, I'll say this again, this is a must have for your collection for 12 classic tracks."
Some beautiful moments, but far too brief!

"With 12 songs clocking in around 3 minutes a piece, this collection is far too brief--however, with much of his later-60's RCA output not available on disc, it's certainly nice to own. Eddy's honey-tinged, melancholy voice works well on numbers like "Lonely Again" and "It's Over", but the stunner is "You Gave Me A Mountain" (from the equally good album "The Glory Of Love"). A very worthy package, but c'mon RCA! do a decent retrospective on this one-of-a-kind man."
