Despite its title, RCA/Legacy's 2005 release 16 Biggest Hits doesn't necessarily contain all of Charley Pride's biggest hit singles. Such country Top Ten hits as "Kaw-Liga" and "All His Children" are missing, so it can't be considered a complete hits overview. That said, 16 Biggest Hits has most of Pride's very biggest singles, including "(I'm So) Afraid of Losing You Again," "All I Have to Offer You (Is Me)," "Is Anybody Goin' to San Antone," "Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'," "It's Gonna Take a Little Bit Longer," "A Shoulder to Cry On," and "Hope You're Feelin' Me (Like I'm Feelin' You)." While there are other collections that offer more material and hits -- chief among them 1997's Essential Charley Pride and 2000's RCA Country Legends -- this is still a first-rate sampler of Pride's best material from the late '60s and early '70s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
