Album Review

Not all of Willie Nelson's hits are on 16 Biggest Hits — after all, it only features recordings he made for Columbia and skips over any hit duet he's had — but it never was intended to be a definitive compilation. Instead, it's a worthy summation of his biggest hits of the late '70s and '80s, from 1975's "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" to 1989's "Nothing I Can Do About It Now."

Of course, Nelson's catalog is so rich it's impossible to pare it down to 16 songs, but this is certainly a terrific sampler on its own terms.
