Overview

According to Sony, they'd have you believe that these "all time greatest hits" are somehow all Ray Price original performances. They're not, particularly the older honky tonk material. In fact, all of this material comes from Price's most popular period -- that much is true -- as a country music crooner with a golden voice and a load of strings behind him and a studio band. That doesn't mean this material is in any way second-rate, most of it is awesome stuff. It's simply that the compilers felt that even later recordings such as "Bridge Over Troubled Water," and "Little Green Apples" are of the same stripe with Price's harder early material. It's not. That said, out of these 20 cuts, 12 of them are simply the stuff that made Price a legend.

His beautiful and heartfelt rendition of Danny Boy is incomprable. His renditions of Crazy Arms, Sweet Memories, Heartaches by the Number..Bridge Over Troubled Water..all the songs are beautiful. His voice is flawless...You won't regret having Ray Price in your music collection.

I just got this CD+DVD set. I didn't realize what a great singer this guy was. All his songs are awesome! Get your hands on anything you can find on this singer, later on, you won't be able to find any of his music. I thank Barnes and Noble for carrying this amount of music on him, I wish they could carry a lot more of his albums. What a treasure!

I just received this CD. I've ordered the same one twice: one for the house and one for the car. Don't worry if when you receive your copy, the cover isn't the same as it is shown here. The CD is the same, with the same songs and extended versions. The only difference is the outer cover and picture. All the songs are amazing, but I just love his renditions of When I Loved Her, Crazy Arms, I Won't Mention It Again, I'd Rather Be Sorry, Sweet Memories...I Won't Mention It Again, will bring tears to your eyes. You can feel the sorrow and pain in his voice, it goes right through you...All his music is like that...He pulls you into his world and you feel everything...The best singer ever!

I just love this CD..it has so many of his wonderful songs. His renditions of Sweet Memories, You wouldn't Know Love, Crazy Arms, Heartaches By the Number.. all the songs are unbelievably beautiful because of Ray Price..I love the fact that all the songs, are the extended versions of the originals, I know because I had all his LP's in vinyl. I know you are going to love this CD, and all his music, just as much as I always have.

His incredibly beautiful renditions of Crazy Arms, Take me as I Am, Heartaches By the Number, Burning Memories...this is an incredibly great CD and bonus DVD.. You need to have this in your collection. The guy is 81...you need to have this and all other Ray Price music before it becomes difficult to find...

To me and to everyone I know, he is the best singer (along with Marty Robbins) that ever lived. He has an incredible voice, range, and flexibility of music rarely seen today. He could sing anything, any song, any note...His renditions of Danny Boy, For the Good Times, Heartaches By The Number, Sweet Memories..all the songs. I have enjoyed his music since I was a kid. You don't have to be a lover of country music to know that Ray Price is the best. I know you will enjoy his music as well. He is a living legend..
