The Best of Kenny Rogers [Capitol 2005]

by: Kenny Rogers

Everything on the ten-track collection The Best of Kenny Rogers is standout, clearly Rogers' biggest hits: "Lady," "The Gambler," "She Believes in Me," "We've Got Tonight," "Lucille," and so on. These were all big hits for Rogers, and it's fairly obvious why -- they're quite calculated adult country-pop that should appeal to conservative listeners of both crowds. And when his ballads were on, like "Lady," they could appeal to nearly anyone. So The Best of Kenny Rogers isn't as comprehensive or definitive as it could be, but it still gives you what you need in a single-disc best-of -- the most well-known hits and nothing more. ~ Jason Birchmeier
