During his 1970s/80s prime Billy Ocean released a hatful of classic pop tunes. In fact this album has a embarrassment of riches when it comes to quality pop music. All the great party hits are here, such as "When the going gets tough" and "Get outta my dreams". They're sure to fill up the dance floor when they come on (in the good clubs anyway!). There are also more soulful songs with the likes of American #1 "There'll be sad songs..". It also provides a good overview of his career including a live performance and some of his largely overlooked early 1990s work.

On the negative side there are some good songs missing- "Stop me", "License to Chill", "Rose" and "Calypso crazy". I also think its strange for the cover of "Long and winding road" to yet again make a appearance on a collection of Billy Ocean's work.

Despite the negative points what is left is great fun to listen to. If you like your 1980s pop you can't go far wrong.

I bought this c.d as I have always loved Billy Ocean, and I wasnt disappointed with it,this is Billy at his brilliant best. So many of his hits and well-known songs crammed onto this c.d,my personal favourites are "suddenly" and "red light spells danger". For anybody whos a fan of Billy.or for anyone who just has a vague interest in his music,this is the c.d to own. So many foot-tapping songs mixed with beautifully sung ballads, I just love this c.d.

This is a must for all Billy Ocean fans! For those that don't know these songs there is a song for every mood, starting with the Classic that was in the film The Jewel Of The Nile [1985] staring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. It has most of his best work. This collection is excellent for playing in the car when on a long drive or around the house. It really gets you going and has songs to just to chill to. This is one of my personal favourites of all time.

Well, for oldies like me or for a new generation that likes cool music, Billy Ocean is one of your choices. I guess I have memories associated to his music so that I enjoy so much, but even for novices it is cool, well tuned music. His voice is attractive, and this CD encompasses most of his hits then you have a good selection. You can dance by yourself in your living room, how cool is that? A must item for Billy Ocean's fans.

An excellent purchase.

All the Billy Ocean tracks you really need (some other "best of" or "collections" don't feature ALL the essential hits, but this one does).

Great to realise how many hits and brill tunes Billy Ocean released. As he is soon to tour again, I fully expect this CD to be re-released at a more expensive price, so get in there soon!
