Coming two decades after the one-two punch of "Apartment #9" and "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad," 1987's ANNIVERSARY is a fine summary of the highest points of Tammy Wynette's early career. For the casual fan that just wants a quality collection of the hits, ANNIVERSARY is hard to beat. All of the hits are present and accounted for, from epoch-defining masterpieces like "Stand By Your Man" and "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" to less familiar but no less worthy gems like "Don't Wanna Play House." The 20-track collection even includes three of Wynette's duets with husband George Jones, "We're Gonna Hold On," "Golden Ring" and "Two-Story House." Completists might want to spring for the more exhaustive three-disc box set TEARS OF FIRE or the double-disc ESSENTIAL TAMMY WYNETTE, but this is the best single-disc collection available.
