For the first time, all of the biggest hits while on MCA Records from New Edition, one of the most popular and successful R&B Pop groups of the '80s and beyond, have been collected on one album. The aptly-titled Hits (MCA/UMe), released March 2, 2004, spans the years 1984 to 1996 and features 17 tracks, each digitally remastered from the original singles masters. Hits includes all 16 of New Edition's R&B Top 10s, among them all four of their #1 smashes ("Cool It Now," "Mr. Telephone Man," "Can You Stand The Rain" and "Hit Me Off"), plus one Top 20.

Ten tracks have never before been heard on any New Edition compilation. Two of those--"Once In A Lifetime Groove" and "Helplessly In Love"--were recorded for films (Running Scared and Dragnet, respectively) and have never before appeared on any New Edition album. The package also includes a booklet filled with rare photos from throughout the group's career. In addition, the booklet reveals how to access on the CD a hidden welcome message to fans from group spokesman Michael Bivins.

Hits hits off with the second album (and first on MCA) from Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe, Ricky Bell, and Bivins. The self-titled 1984 disc spawned "Cool It Now" (#4 pop and gold) and "Mr. Telephone Man" (#12 pop) and the Top 10 R&B/Top 40 pop "Lost In Love." The follow-up, 1985's All For Love, boasted "Count Me Out" (#2 R&B), "A Little Bit Of Love (Is All It Takes)" (#3 R&B/Top 40 pop) and "With You All The Way" (Top 10 R&B). Then Brown left for his solo career in 1986, replaced by Johnny Gill. That year's transition album, Under The Blue Moon, featured covers, including the #3 R&B/Top 40 pop "Earth Angel," which was also heard in The Karate Kid Part II.

The two previously mentioned soundtrack contributions followed before the addition of Gill and the production of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis spurred an even more mature sound on 1988's Heart Break. Spun off from that album were "If It Isn't Love" (#2 R&B/Top 10 pop), "You're Not My Kind Of Girl" (#3 R&B), "Can You Stand The Rain," "Crucial" (#4 R&B) and "N.E. Heart Break" (Top 20 R&B). The group then broke up.

All six members returned for their much-lauded reunion album, Home Again, in 1996. While its "Hit Me Off" went gold and topped the R&B chart (and reached #3 pop), "I'm Still In Love With You" went Top 10 pop and R&B, and "You Don't Have To Worry" scored yet another R&B Top 10. But New Edition has not been heard from since.

Along the way there were other major hits for the group's members, either solo or as part of the trio Bell Biv DeVoe, but their phenomenal run of success began when they were together as New Edition.
