This robust collection is as good a place as any to start for those interested in revisiting Kenny Rogers's long, glorious run on the country and pop charts through the 1970s and early 1980s. It includes early countrified milestone hits like "Lucille" and "The Gambler," as well as later pop-flavored outings like "Lady" and "You Decorated My Life." It's rounded out with a sampling of the smooth pop duets he recorded with leading ladies like Sheena Easton ("We've Got Tonight"), Kim Carnes ("Don't Fall in Love with a Dreamer"), and the late Dottie West ("'Till I Can Make It on My Own"). All told, this is among the strongest of the many single-CD compilations that have been culled from Rogers's long, prolific, and varied career. --Bob Allen

Kenny Rogers best songs, except that it does not have Islands in the Stream with Dolly Parton. I like the song "Love Will Turn You Around" the theme from the movie Six Pack, it is on this CD and I haven't been able to find it anywhere else.

"I love Kenny Rogers music and almost made the mistake of purchasing this one. Fortunately I double checked my CD list and found that I already had the "25 Greatest Hits" CD. the "20 Greatest Hits" CD is exactly the same except the last 5 songs have been cut out. The CD covers are even the same. The missing songs are:
Abraham, Martin & John/Precious Memories
Love Is What We Make It
Green Green Grass of Home

If you can't find the "25 Greatest Hits" then definetly go with with the "20"... it's great music. However - check your CD's first & make sure that you don't already have the "25". Either way, it's Kenny Rogers music and these were all from his best period. Also, if you don't already have it, the "Water & Bridges" CD (his newest) is very good."
