Product Overview

Kenny Rogers is a country/pop crossover star of epic proportions whose solo breakthroughs in the late 70s just hinted at the greatness and longevity to come. He faithfully blends all American music-pop, country, soul and gospel-garnering fans in every decade with his easy-going style and warm personality.

Now, in celebration of his first fifty years in the music business, Time Life is proud to release The First 50 Years, a 3-CD box set of Kenny's greatest hits, plus three new songs only found in this release, including a new duet with Dolly Parton.

The box set will feature three themed discs: Duets, Story Songs and Love Songs. Every disc features original versions of his well-known hits, some of Kenny's personal favorites, plus one new recording per disc!

Album Notes and Credits
Liner Note Author: Colin Escott.
Time/Life's The First 50 Years is a triple-disc box set where each disc is built around a specific theme: "Duets," "Story Songs", and "Love Songs." These themes are a new, easy way to recycle the same hits that appear on every Kenny Rogers collection like clockwork, but it's an effective move, resulting in an enjoyable collection of the original hit recordings where the enticement is a brand new recording added to each themed disc. Perhaps it's not much of a bait to the hardcore fans, but they're not really the audience for this: The First 50 Years is for anybody who wants all of Kenny's hits but never has bothered to pick them up. Now they have another chance. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
