Although it's missing a few important (not to mention big) hits, Greatest Hits, Vols. 1 & 2 is an excellent retrospective of the first half of Billy Joel's career. Beginning with "Piano Man," the first disc runs through a number of early songs before arriving at the hit-making days of the late '70s; some of these songs, including "Captain Jack" and "New York State of Mind," weren't strictly hits, but were popular numbers within his stage show and became radio hits. Once the songs from The Stranger arrive halfway through the first disc, there's no stopping the hits (although "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant," an album track from The Stranger, manages its way onto the collection).
This is a good CD to introduce someone to Chicago or to let them know who it was who sang songs like "25 or 6 to 4" or "Saturday in the Park" (perhaps 2 of their most recognisable songs). This collection features exclusively the original (and the best) lineup of Peter Cetera…
Ofra Haza was quite possibly the most beloved singer in Israel's history, and one of Israel's most recognizable faces and voices worldwide. As a daughter of immigrants from Yemen's Jewish community and as an international superstar, she incorporated many styles into her repertoire. This wonderful collection contains 53 of her most popular songs in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.
The singer Ted Poley (Danger Danger) has released the album "Greatest Hits Volume 2" and is the sequel to 2009's "Greatestits Vol. 1". GREATEST HITS Volume 2 features re-masters of some of Ted's favorite songs that didnt make it onto the now almost sold out Vol. 1 cd set- PLUS 4 new tracks not available on any of Ted's CD's until now which includes the single BREATHE (awesome video now playing on youtube) as well as a RARE track by ERIC CARR of KISS with Ted on lead vocals taken from a lost, then found demo cassette tape, vocals added later, this exclusive version is remastered!
John Denver wasn't merely hot during the mid-'70s; he was omnipresent on radio, TV, and on-stage for anyone who'd have him. Certainly, few artists enjoyed more than one greatest-hits collection – even if critics derided him as a granola-munching, tree-hugging folky who perennially smiled through life's hardships.
It goes without saying that The Best of the Byrds: Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 doesn't have as many classic singles as the group's first hits collection, since the Byrds stopped being a singles band shortly after the release of Greatest Hits.
