In many respects, this relatively condensed package contains everything you need by the duo that's been called "the Everly Brothers of the British Invasion," including all the American hits--from the four that Paul McCartney wrote for them (you see, Peter Asher's actress sister, Jane, was Macca's steady gal for years) to the Buddy Holly cover, their take on Del Shannon's timeless "I Go to Pieces," and their foray into music-hall schtick via "Lady Godiva" and "Knight in Rusty Armor." Rhino's "best of" has 10 additional tracks--including the duo's self-penned nonhits--but that may be for completists only. --Bill Holdship

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Knight Templar on 17 Feb. 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a good CD showcasing the best recordings of Peter Asher and the late Gordon Waller. Their best hit singles are on here, including I Go To Pieces written by Del Shannon, that was a deserved big hit in the US (and possible elsewhere) but not released, to my knowledge, as a single in the UK. It is worth buying this CD. It only has 10 tracks, but they are all good. Other more expensive CD's may have more tracks but much of the extra material is questionable. Unless you are an extreme fan, just buy this CD and I believe you will be happy with your choice.

life's too short 27 Jun. 2000
By "gordon@ruraltel.net" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hey, life is too short to put up with 'duophonic' in the year 2000. I bought a similar Bobby Goldsboro package to get the cool song "Little Things" and, sure enough, it's 'duophonic' (i.e., electronically "enhancing" a mono recording to make it "sound like" stereo. To whose ears? It sounds horrible). There might have been an excuse for such idiotic practices in the 60s when we had cheap stereos and no one really knew better, but those tapes should have been destroyed long ago.
Spend the money and get a decent Peter and Gordon package. Unfortunately, Rhino deleted theirs, so your best choice is the See For Miles EP package.

Delightful Mid-Sixties Pop 30 Jan. 2000
By Steve Vrana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Peter Asher and Gordon Waller hit the jackpot with their first single, "A World Without Love." The song was written by Peter's sister's then-boyfriend Paul McCartney and the song was a No. 1 in both the U.K. and the U.S.
Over the next three years, they would place a total of ten songs on the charts, including Del Shannon's "I Go to Pieces" and three other McCartney songs ("Nobody I Know," "I Don't Want To See You Again" and "Woman"--on the last song McCartney uses the pseudonym Bernard Webb).
By late-1966 the duo was releasing novelty songs as singles and "Lady Godiva" reaches No. 6 and becomes their fourth million-seller.
All of the songs are memorable, and if your not content to have only a couple of these songs which could be found on numerous compilations, this is the album to get. My only complaint is how skimpy the album is and how little thought was given the sequencing. This is a track-by-track chronology of all ten Top 40 songs Peter and Gordon recorded. And at [the price] it's hard to complain, but I would have paid double the price to include some key album tracks. [See For Miles' E.P. Collection excludes a couple of the hits, and Collectables' two-fer series is too much Peter & Gordon and it gets expensive.] RECOMMENDED

It is all right, but could be better 21 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This disc has P&G's 10 big hits from 1964 to 1967. It does, sadly, have several tracks rechanneled that are readily available in true stereo. The collectables discs or the imports EP collection and Original Hits are much better albums and feature much more for those who want to hear a more complete and varied selection of P&G. A good album for those seeking just a greatest hits package.

correction 30 Mar. 2002
By james - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I made a mistake & i want to correct it. I was wrong, these are not original stereo recordings. I recently purchased a stereo system with surround sound & this cd sounds o.k.,but you can tell the difference & it is not true stereo. If you just love the peter & gordon music like i do,then i would recommend this cd.But if you want true stereo recordings,then i would recommend the higher priced cds. The original hits cd contains mono & stereo recordings. My favorite songs are" lady Godiva " & " knight in rusty armour " & " Woman ". Overall you get a good cd for the price.Peter & Gordon are terrific musicians. ( well they were ). Enjoy the music....

A really bare boned look at the best of Peter & Gordon 28 Feb. 2005
By Lawrance Bernabo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Peter & Gordon's "Greatest Hits" is not the best Peter & Gordon collection out there. That would be the 2001 release of "The Ultimate Peter & Gordon." Peter Asher and Gordon Waller were the rock duo who had the distinction of being the first group in the British Invasion other than the Beatles to have a #1 hit, "A World Without Love." Of course, the explanation for this success was that Asher's younger sister Jane was Paul McCartney's girlfriend during the first part of the Sixties. This connection paid off with three other hits for Peter & Gordon, namely: "Nobody I Know" (#12), "I Don't Want to See You Again" (#16) and "Woman" (#14).

Of course, even without their recoding discarded Beatles songs Peter & Gordon would be remembered for their novelty hit "Lady Godiva" (#6). But with their softer, more acoustic sound, you can see Peter & Gordon as being more in tune with the folk-rock movement than with the British Invasion. In fact, Asher would go on to be a producer who helped define the mellow sound of California rock, which would seem to help prove the point. Notice that their folksier songs, like "Knight in Rusty Armour" stands up a lot better than ones where the production values lean towards orchestrations, such as "To Know You Is to Love You."

At the very least, Peter & Gordon represent the lighter side of the British Invasion, and you can have fun figuring out who their dark side counterpart would be. The only serious knock against them is that Asher and Waller were average song-writers at best (but notice that the album ends with a pair of songs the duo wrote individually). The knock on Peter & Gordon's "Greatest Hits" is simply that while it has their five best songs, it only provides five more beyond that and that does not include "Baby I'm Yours" and their version of Phil Ochs' "The Flower Lady."
