"This 3 CD collection has a pretty good selection of hits, even though there are many more of The Hag's hits that aren't included. The only problem I have with it is the fact that all of the older songs are not the original recordings. They are remakes. If you like that sort of thing, then that's alright. As for me, however, I only like the original recordings because those are what I fell in love with through the years. Therefore, I feel I wasted my money in buying this set. It looks like the only way to get all of Hag's hits with original recordings is to buy the "Down Every Road" box set and "Yesterday's Wine (1981-1988)"."
You're better off buying the originals

"Though this collection contains most of Hag's best songs, they are not the original recordings. I bought this collection thinking they would be the classic recordings that have been loved by country fans for years. On most of these song's, Hag's voice sounds weak. When you listen to some recordings that were made even more recently, you'll find those are better than the recordings in this collection. Maybe Merle was sick when he made these recordings or something. However, this collection does have great songs, and is certainly worth listening to."
This one is a winner!

"I bought this set only to get "Kern River." What a great purchase it turned out to be. Volumes I and III are Haggard at his old-fashioned best; The cuts on Volume II is a little overly stylized for my taste. But what the heck, the last three cuts on the "Super Hits" volume of this set are "I Had a Beautiful Time," "Someday When Things Are Good," and last but not least, "Kern River." I couldn't make up my mind which I liked best but one thing for certain, those three cuts are worth the price of the set! I was grinning so much while listening, I'm glad no one came into the room - they'd have thought I was up to something."
