Remakes Are Not Really "Greatest Hits" But "Plays Favorites"
Todd A. Gracyk | Petaluma, CA USA | 01/26/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD features a generous selection of songs but the phrase "greatest hits" is misleading; these are not Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys' original Capitol, Starday, Columbia, and Epic recordings. These CMH recordings date from the late 1970s and/or early 1980s. That's not to say they are bad, but it can be argued that the remakes here are inferior to Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys' recordings of the 1950s and 1960s."
A GREAT ALBUM BY THE MASTERS
MATTHEW K MAYNARD | COLUMBUS, OHIO | 02/25/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"ENCHANTING HARMONY, AWESOME MANDOLIN PLAYING, AND A STRONG 5-STRING! EVERYTHING THAT MAKES BLUEGRASS THE BEST! THIS ALBUM HAS IT ALL AND THEN SOME. ALL OF THEIR BLUEGRASS ALBUMS ARE FANTASTIC AND THIS IS ANOTHER ONE.JIM PASSED AWAY ON NEW YEARS EVE 2002 BUT HIS VOICE LIVES ON THROUGH GREAT RECORDINGS LIKE THIS ONE!"
