A near complete single-disc anthology. Were only a few tunes added (and I'm sure they could have found the space), no other future hit collection would/could have been better or come near. `Doing It All For My Baby`, `It's Alright` and `Hope You Love Me Like You Say You Do` are these songs. However, as everyone knows, one probably has a better chance at winning a lottery than obtaining an official Best Of collection by a group with every personal favorite(s) included. Any event, in my opinion the best disc out there containing Mr. Lewis's greatest hits thus far.

Ahh, how refreshing to hear some classic style American Rock music. I loved this album. It is packed full of great tracks, so much so I don't really have a favourite, although Power of love and Hip to be Square do stand out. After putting up with the never ending pop rubbish conveyer-belt it was like a breath of fresh air to hear something original like this. I am not by the way a middle aged guy who liked this music when he was a teenager, I am 19 and a student. I just wish there were a few more Huey's around today so we could balance things up a bit with the Pop world.

Huey Lewis and the News go back to another era, another planet. This CD sounds like a collection of radio hits, damn good ones from decades ago. The horn section, the selective use of the harp and excellent doowop vocals is feel good music at its best. Huey's voice pleases me throughout. The music is tight, with endless slick delivery of lyrics laced with irony.

This isn't music for the purist. Its simple, happy hip swinging music that will remembered like radio jingles. Including well known numbers such as Bad is bad, If this is it, The heart of Rock 'n Roll, Back in Time, Hip to be Square, Stuck with You, Workin' for a Livin' and Power of Love. This is a working band, that primarily looks for and values a venue with a good sound. Nowadays, audience size doesn't matter for them. The sound is what matters here on the Cd too. Played loud, you get to here a lot of exciting stuff going on, which is pleasing as they know their craft.

This is foot 'tappingly' happy music that will lift the most menacing melancholic mood. Whether this band is new to you or not, the CD is likeable, memorable and uplifting. Which is rather unusual these days.

Once again a band who have been associated with one song and not given the recognition they deserve for the rest of their work. 'Power Of Love' is a classic 80's track but songs like 'If This Is It', 'Do You Believe In Love' & 'Perfect World' are also superb songs. If you like your 80's music then this album is a must buy and even if your just a fan of the film 'Back To The Future' check this baby out! You will not be disappointed.

This is definetely one of Huey's best albums. Containing many of the best hits like 'The Power Of Love' and 'Back In Time' from Back To The Future and some others you will want to play over again and again. If you like Huey Lewis or any rock & roll this is the album for you at a terrific price. Definate value for money!

Huey Lewis and the News is an American pop rock band based in San Francisco, California. They had a run of hit singles during the 1980s and early 1990s, eventually scoring a total of 19 top ten singles across the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Contemporary and Mainstream Rock charts.

Their greatest success was in the 1980s with the number-one album, Sports, coupled with a series of highly successful MTV videos. Their worldwide fame expanded when the song "The Power of Love" was featured as a key track in the film Back to the Future (in which Lewis had a cameo appearance), became a number-one hit, and was nominated for an Academy Award.

The News combined a rock (and sometimes, a "blues-rock") backing with soul and doo-wop-influenced harmony vocals and Lewis' voice.[citation needed]
