More so than most country artists, Willie Nelson is difficult to thoroughly investigate without delving into his individual releases, which often revolve around either musical or lyrical concepts. So give Columbia credit for assembling such a cohesive, provocative collection, one that covers every aspect of his glorious career and that amply showcases his distinctive singing, songwriting, and gut-string work. Disc 1 (entitled Pilgrimage), worth the price of admission alone, focuses on his remarkable 1970s and early-1980s work: the Red Headed Stranger cuts, the Lefty Frizzell tributes, the Stardust standards, searing live cuts, the Electric Horseman cowboy odes and Honeysuckle Rose gems, and the best of Always on My Mind. Disc 2 (Sojourns) pairs Nelson with an impressive array of partners: Haggard, Price, Miller, Pierce, Charles, Young (both Neil and Faron), Santana, Possum, Dylan, Cash, Snow, Jennings, Julio, Dolly, Kristofferson. Disc 3 (Exodus) collects the mid-1980s and early-1990s stuff, and while it contains moments of brilliance, it doesn't match up to the first two discs. All in all, a marvelous 60-song collection filled with an astonishing number of spine-chilling moments. --Marc Greilsamer

Wildly uneven but chock full of hits, near hits, collaborations and near misses.

"I found this set of cds by accident when I was looking for a particular song on the album that Willie does with Dolly Parton. I was thrilled to check out the songs and find out just how good this set was. I am a die hard country fan and this is one of my favorties!!"
