Guide Review - Kenny Rogers - 21 Number Ones

A beloved, universally-known icon of American entertainment, Kenny Rogers is a living legend with an extensive history of success, including 26 Gold records and a Diamond-certified Greatest Hits album that has sold more than 12 million copies. On January 24, 2006, Capitol updates this hits collection with a new title, Kenny Rogers: 21 Number Ones, a CD filled with chart-topping hits from the Gambler.

The only song on this greatest hits package that wasn't a #1 hit is the duet he does with Kim Carnes called "Don't Fall In Love With A Dreamer." So, there are actually 22 tracks on this CD. And every song on this greatest hits package is the original recording. There are *no* re-recorded songs in this collection. The only song omitted from this collection that appeared on the first greatest hits album is the song "The Long Arm Of The Law." Some of the standouts in this collection are "Daytime Friends," "Morning Desire," and "Buy Me A Rose," a song he recorded with Alison Krauss & Billy Dean.

Kenny Rogers also has several duets on this greatest hits collection. There are three songs with Dottie West. They are: "Every Time Two Fools Collide," "All I Ever Need Is You," and "What Are We Doing In Love." Other duets are, with Dolly Parton, "Islands In The Stream," with Ronnie Milsap, "Make No Mistake, She's Mine" and with Sheena Easton, "We've Got Tonight." It's an outstanding collection of 22 of Kenny Rogers biggest hits on one CD. This is one collection you'll really enjoy!
