Greatest Hits

I have about 60 greatest hits collections and anthologies. Here are my top fifteen favorites, alphabetically:

The American Anthology of Folk Music – Various
Anokha: Soundz of the Asian Underground – Various
The Birth of Soul: The Complete Atlantic R&B Recordings – Ray Charles
Greatest Hits (1975) – Al Green
Greatest Hits (2005) – Ricky Nelson
Greatest Hits (1970) – Sly and the Family Stone
The Great 28 – Chuck Berry
King of the Delta Blues Singers – Robert Johnson
The Kink Kronikles – The Kinks
Legend – Bob Marley
Portrait of a Legend – Sam Cooke
Substance 1987 (LP version) – New Order
The Sun Sessions (CD version) – Elvis Presley
20 Golden Greats – Buddy Holly
Walking to New Orleans – Fats Domino

I figure I spend so much time on albums that some time on Greatest Hits would be worthwhile. How else can you represent artists like Robert Johnson, Buddy Holly and Sam Cooke? So there it is.

Buy yours today!
