I've had the vhs and then the dvd of The Greatest Hits for several years and decided that I sometimes just want to listen to the hilarious stories as I potter about the place. I'm pleased that the double cd is practically identical to the dvd release with only subtle changes i.e. in the baby monitor sketch on dvd where Billy says that "you begin to look a bit like Bonny Langford", is missing from the cd version obviously because the format is audio and not visual - the rest of the sketch is there. My favourite audio sketch on this collection is the holiday one where he advises his kids not to drink water from the tap - with disasterous and hilarious results.
The sound quality is very good and you can probably tell that because this is the third format of which I own this collection, that I recommend it to everyone. To newcomers I would advise watching the dvd first to get the full Connolly experience, then buy this for your car trips or your home stereo.

Great cd of some of Billy's Best Bits.
Clips from many performances. Put together well, they may be ones you've heard before if you're a Billy fan, but always funny and its nice to have so many of the best ones together.
