"Purchasers of Guy Mitchell CDs have to be cautious as many of those currently available do not contain the original versions of his songs. These, however, are all the original glorious 1950s recordings which fans will well remember. The only complaint I have about this release is the artwork chosen to represent the face of Guy Mitchell on the inlay card. It is very unflattering and, in my opinion, does not look much like him at all. After all the years this CD has been in release it is high time Sony revamped this picture!"

"One in Columbia Legacy's "16 Most Requested Songs" series, this is a better quality compilation of mostly hits from Mitchell's career. Just how the 16 most requested tunes is determined however, seems a bit suspect in that Mitchell's number one hit "Heartaches By The Number" is not included here. With this notable omission, this is not the collection it could have been. Notwithstanding, many of his better-known sides are here making this piece a desirable one for Mitchell fans. Sound quality is very good with all tracks in mono as these are pre-'58 recordings. One other anomaly here is that while all tracks are mono, the production credits state that this has been remixed and remastered. If multitracks existed, one wonders why were they remixed down to mono. The liner notes booklet contains a five-page musical history of Mitchell but there are 12 pages here with several blank or hardly used. A few pictures or more detailed track info would have been appropriate. Again, some strange decisions in production mar what could have been a superb collection. Bear Family has a Guy Mitchell compilation CD containing 25 tracks with virtually all his biggest hits in excellent sound quality and, while pricier, is a preferable alternative to this piece."
