It is virtually impossible to encompass all of O'Sullivan's best songs within 21 tracks - three discs wouldn't be enough to include the enormous output of his quality songs - but this collection is an excellent introduction to his amazingly original songs written in the 70 & 80s, including some of the most memorable hit songs, like Nothing Rhymed, Alone Again (Naturally), Clair, What's In A Kiss. It includes also the great love songs like 'Tomorrow Today', 'Happiness Is Me And You' and the heart-achingly wistful song 'At The Very Mention Of Your Name' from the wonderfully crafted album 'In the Key of G.', and the latest hit song 'Taking a Chance on Love' which was used as a theme song for Japanese TV adverb. If you come to love these songs, you will surly buy his all albums and will be on an amazing journey of discoveries.

Tracks:

1. Taking a Chance on Love
2. Alone Again (Naturally)
3. Nothing Rhymed
4. Clair
5. Get Down
6. Ooh-Wakka-Doo-Wakka-Day
7. Out of the Question
8. What's in a Kiss [Original Version]
9. Tomorrow Today
10. At the Very Mention of Your Name
11. Doesn't It Make You Sick (Mortar and Brick)
12. Ooh Baby
13. Underneath the Blanket Go
14. Matrimony
15. No Matter How I Try
16. A Woman's Place
17. If I Can't Have You All to Myself
18. I Wish I Could Cry (Single Version)

I must admit until a few days ago I knew Gilbert O'Sullivan only for his biggest hit, Alone again. I heard the song when it came out and liked it, but at the time I was a rock fan and let's say it wasn't in the order of things for a rock fan to like him...however, nearly forty years have passed and I'm still a rock fan, but also many other things and I have no problems appreciating good music of any kind if I happen to like it. I recently bought the latest Neil Diamond's albun of covers and I quite liked his cover of Alone again, which re-ignited a long-dormant interest. I decided on the spot that a man capable of writing and interpreting such a delicious song (whose lyrics I discovered where rather deep, who'd have known back then?) must have surely witten others and on a whim I ordered this best which seemed to me comprehensive enough to represent him (after some investigation). Let me say I was rather pleasantly surprised, Alone is and will be always my favourite, but not one of the other 20 songs is weak, O'Sullivan has two weapons in his canon, more or less, the happy tune and the ballad, but the happy tunes are never hollow and the ballads restrained enough, plus the arrangements are well crafted, with some rock overtones that are quite welcome, the voice is good enough to carry the tunes and the lyrics are surely listenable and sometimes pleasantly funny. To sum it up: not my favourite kind of music, but one of my favourites in this kind of music.

This is a great selection of tunes from a first-class musician. It was wonderful to hear Gilbert's music. My only problem is that my copy has a slight sound distortion and I was going to return it, but have decided to put up with it.

Remastered ...... not what I wanted, as I prefer the original recordings, that made me buy the vinyl copy all those years ago. It should have been labelled as "Remastered"! Very disappointed.
