"Good news and bad news here.First the bad. The big named songs here, Roomfull of Roses, Almost, and Candy Kisses are all remakes done for Starday and Stop records in the 1970's. Now the good. This cd is the only available collection of his Stop and Starday recordings. "Lilacs and Fire, and Sounds of Goodbye" were all chart hits for Morgan. The sound is good and Morgan was always a great vocalist.More bad news, the packaging is generic. You can usually find this cd in a bargain bin or at a gas station."

"Great songs by one of the best singers in the history of country music. Candy Kisses,of course is unforgettable. The bulk of his playtime nowadays is from Candy Kisses, but don't forget the others. Room Full of Roses is equal to Jim Reeves, better in my opinion. Precoius Memories, Beyond the Sunset, Hello Darlin', Softly and Tenderly for example have all been done by others. Maybe more recently or better known, but none equal to George.
His voice has a timbre and tone equal to Eddy Arnold, and more than once I have had to wait for a couple of lines to make sure who was singing. I think he deserves to be held in equal standing with the Tennessee Plowboy, and this Album is all the evidence I need to base my stand upon.
The PRICE is more than reasonable and the music is beyond compare. The only reason I didn't buy one right away is because I needed something for my Christmas list."
