"This particular compilation does have great Glen Campbell music, but it only has 3 of the 1970s classics most people associate with Glen as most of this ranges from 1987-1990 with the 3 1970s hits on the comp being "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Southern Nights," and "Country Boy (You Got Your Feet In LA)." This compilation is still worth buying simply for his final 4 top 10 country hits which are a rockin' cover of Lefty Frizzell's "She's Gone, Gone, Gone," which is a major highlight of this compilation, the Jimmy Webb composed ballad "Still Within The Sound Of My Voice," the ballad "I Have You," and "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle," featuring Steve Wariner which does have a very powerful message throughout the song. He'd no longer have any top 10 hits during the years after the cutoff year of this CD, 1990, but he'd still put out a lot of great music. For most people who'd want his hits should look for "All The Best" on Capitol, "All Time Favorite Hits: 10 Best Series" on either Collectables or EMI Special Products, "Classics Collection" on Collectables or Capitol, the out of print "The Very Best of Glen Campbell" CD on Capitol from 1987, "The Best of The Early Years" on Curb, or the out of print 2 CD "Glen Campbell Collection" on Razor & Tie. For diehard fans, several of his best selling albums have been reissued on CD and the 2 CD set mentioned is also worthwhile for diehard fans who don't want the boxed set and don't want to buy the reissues of the original albums that are available and there is also the out of print "Essential Glen Campbell" 3 volume series that's also worthwhile for diehard fans. "20 Greatest Hits" is another misleading compilation as although it contains 5 of his biggest hits, the rest of the material on their is mainly album tracks and instrumental work, but since there is more to Glen than just the hits, "20 Greatest Hits" is worthwhile for diehard fans as well as casual fans who want more than just the hits, just like this particular CD."
