Awesome human being!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw Gene Watson in person at the Spokane Interstate Fair and would enjoy seeing him again. Under-rated is an understatement. It is sad that we don't hear more of his music. Finding all of his music has been nearly impossible. Now I have finally located all of his music on-line and I will buy them all. He is my favorite artist."
Best Gene Watson "Greatest Hits" CD currently available...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been listening to Gene Watson for at least 20 years. Finally there is a CD worthy of this man's incredible singing talent. Just about every "hit" song that he has ever recorded is here. There are several other Gene Watson "greatest hits" CDs out there -- don't be fooled as this one is the one to purchase. Eighteen songs and not one of them weak. Gene has had an "up and down" career in the country music business. And that is quite sad, as he is one of the best pure country singers around today. In fact, he can sing the blues, honky tonk,and just about anything else with the very best of them. He has never received the credit that he deserves. Listen to "Paper Rosie","Love In The Hot Afternoon","The Old Man And His Horn". Gene is much more than the "king" of the hard-country vocal style, though he is that as well. I should mention that there are some other great Watson songs that, unfortunately, do not appear on this disc. Two that stand out are "14 Carat Mind" and "She's Out Doing What I'm Here Doing Without." There are others, but overall this is a superb collection. So until someone puts together some type of 2-disc set, this CD will have to do. You won't be skipping past or over any songs here. A great compilation from an artist who deserves much more recognition than he has ever received."
A Great Country Album!

"This is the best sample of Gene Watson's work available on CD. It is essentially the album "Heartaches, Love and stuff" (which I always considered his best work) with a couple other good songs thrown in and, unfortunately, a couple of good songs thrown out. Gene's voice has such a great, unique, quality. I played this CD at work a few times and worried that my co-workers would hate it. Instead, Gene Watson gained a few more devoted fans. This album is hard not to like. My only wish is that they would re-release "Heartaches, love and stuff" in it's original form. If you're a fan of Gene's or are just curious about him, this is the best place to start."
