Troyal Garth Brooks, the American country-rock singer who's shifted more records than Elvis (120 million plus at the last count) and won more awards than he probably knows what to do with, officially went into retirement a couple of years ago. Though he stopped recording and touring in order to take on the role of 'full time father', he hasn't been able to step completely out of the musical spotlight, popping into the studio now and again to record new songs, playing the odd live show, and sealing a high profile deal with Wal-Mart back in 2005 to release a compilation called The Limited Series.
That six-CD box set contained a wealth of Brook's previous material, eleven previously un-issued recordings and a live DVD - and was slammed by many critics for effectively forcing fans to re-purchase material they already owned. Their complaints didn’t stop the collection selling more than 20 million copies, however. His Wal-Mart exclusivity deal now expired, Brooks is at it again with Ultimate Hits, which gathers together many of his most famous hit songs between his rise and his ‘retirement'.
Comprising 34 songs in total (four of which are new), the two-disc set also comes with a DVD full of music videos for most of the songs. More than half of these tracks can be found on Brooks' '94 anthology, The Hits, including early smashes like "If Tomorrow Never Comes", "Ain’t Going Down (Til The Sun Comes Up)", "Friends In Low Places", "Good Ride Cowboy" and "Friends In Low Places", "The Thunder Rolls", "Standing Outside The Fire" and "We Shall Be Free".
The remainder bring us up to the last half of the '90s, with 'newer' hits like 95's Aerosmith cover "The Fever", "Two Pina Coladas" (from Sevens), "When You Come Back To Me Again" and "Wrapped Up" (from Scarecrow) and several more. None of the four new songs – which include current single "More Than Memory," – stand out as particularly exceptional, though the shuffle of "Midnight Sun", is fairly infectious and "Leave A Light On" stands up to his usual 'power ballad' standards.
Despite the relative ubiquity of the material here, Ultimate Hits makes for a fairly comprehensive overview of Brooks' key tunes. It will also serve as a decent introduction to the man and his music for those few far-flung listeners on Planet Earth who have yet to discover him. --Paul Sullivan

34 songs across two CDs and a DVD with 33 videos for £12.99? Good value in anyone's money I feel! And just look at some of these classics - "Standing Outside The Fire", "American Honky Tonk Bar Association", "Friends In Low Places", "If Tomorrow Never Comes" (the original! Not Ronan's paper-thin copy!), "Beer Run" with George Jones, "Good Ride Cowboy" (GB's tribute to the great Chris LeDoux), "Callin' Baton Rouge", "Thunder Rolls" .... truly something for everyone!!
Garth Brooks has been releasing country music since 1989. He is one of the best selling country artists in America. This collection has been No.1 over there already.
I have been a fan of Garth Brooks since 1989 and have his complete collection of everything he has ever released, some I have purchased from Amazon USA as they have not been released over here in the UK.
I had the pleasure of seeing him in concert in Sheffield in October 1994 and he was fantastic.
If you want to start collecting his albums then this is a must buy and at £12.99 this is a bargain for what you get (2CD's containing over 30 tracks as well as the DVD).
Each one of his albums are now available over here digitally remastered so go on check them out you won't be disappointed.
I have ordered three copies (two of them are for christmas presents).
Do check out Amazon UK and Amazon USA to start your collection, you will not be disappointed.
Garth Brooks remains one of the best artists ever, all types of music included.
has had a string of wonderful hits that are all on this double CD
+ the "gift" of a DVD where all these hits can be seen. Besides,
the price of this "triple disc" offer is incredible. So much for
"In Another's Eyes"
"We Shall Be Free"
The one thing that I am suprised about is the fact that the song "You Move Me" was left off this compilation. The other songs included are great and make obtaining this greatest hits collection worth it. However, the reason why I feel like "You Move Me" would have been beneficial to include in this compilation is because it is a loving, beautiful, and uplifting song about how his lover touches him. The theme of "You Move Me" would have went wonderfully with the other love songs that are included on this Garth Brook's greatest hits collection. This collection is best to get if you enjoy country music and/or you are an occasional country music listener who enjoys collecting greatest hit compilations of talented musicians.
As a side-note, Garth is selling a "pink edition" of this DVD on the "Susan G. Komen" website in the U.S. $10 from every "pink edition" sold is going to that particular charity which is outstanding when most CD or single releases give a minute percentage of the profits. Garth has proven his class with this action once again. So if you are going to buy this then why not order this plus a copy of the "pink edition" from the U.S. Support a good cause!
