Good CD, as far as it goes. And 11 songs, isn't very far .

"In my opinion 'The New Christy Minstrels' had a sound like no other group, and I could listen to them for hours. And if you feel the same then you'll be sadly disappointed with this CD. Not that the music isn't great, it's just that there isn't enough of it. How can it be called their 'greatest hits' when it leaves out songs such as; 'Whistlin' Dixie', 'Way Down in Arkansas', 'Company of Cowards', and my favorite; 'This Ol' Riverboat'? No, this CD should have been entitled: 'A few of The New Christy Minstrels Greatest Hits."
Songs are great - sound is not

"The New Christy Minstrels were a fantastic 1960s group. I loved their music and had this CD in album form, nearly wearing it out I played it so much. It had one drawback even in the 60s; the sound was somewhat tinny, for lack of a better word. Now it's the year 2000 and we expect a much clearer sound from our music, especially from CDs. When I bought this CD I had high hopes that the tinny sound would be gone but it isn't and it bothers me even more in this format. If that one problem could be corrected this CD would rate 5 stars from me but not until."

"This is suppose to be "The Greatest Hits" CD, yet a lot of the "great hits" by the group were omitted. It is more of a Sid Garris (NCM owner)production and only had Green Green and Today because they were chart-busters, otherwise he would have not included them!"
