This affordable import offers 22 of Ray Stevens' late '60s and early to mid-'70s recordings, including his biggest hits "The Streak" and "Misty," as well as several other charting singles. The collection offers a good balance between Stevens' comedy - which combines the silliest aspects of Roger Miller's and Jerry Reed's novelty records - and his straight material. The novelties are something that most listeners will either love or hate depending on their affinity for dumb humor, with Stevens' remake of "Along Came Jones" being one of his better comedy efforts. Misty hits all the high points and has more tracks than most domestic collections without being more expensive, which makes it a superior anthology.
