like many of you i'm sure as a collector will have many if not most of
the numbers on board over and over again, maybe on compilation albums
such as 'American Anthems' and 'Power Ballads' or even on the artists albums, so why add this ?
well for me, it's a fantastic collection of favourites, one after another
all mixed on to this 3-CD compilation, a brilliant mix indeed.
we will all have our favourite's, i'll just mention one or two of mine,
'Queen' -'Don't stop me now' ...'Rainbow' -'Since you've been gone'...
'Meat Loaf' -'Bat out of Hell'...'Toto' -'Africa' ,,, 'Foreigner' -
'I want to know what love is' ...'America' -'Ventura Highway' ( back
in the early 70's released on the same '45 as 'A horse with no name' )
to continue---'Survivor' -'Eye of the Tiger'...'Faces' -'Stay with me'
...'Patti Smith' -'Because the Night' ...'The Cars' -'Drive'...'Santana'
-'She's Not there'...'Billy Idol' -'White Wedding' ...'Manfred Mann' -
'Davy's on the road again' ...'Ram Jam' -'Black Betty' ...'E.L.O' -
'Sweet talkin' Woman' ...'Mott the Hoople' -'All the young dudes' ...
'Don Mclean' -'American Pie' ...and 'Roy Orbison's' -'I Drove All Night'
just a reflection of the quality on board, there are many more artist's
and tracks worthy of a mention that i'd consider among my favourite's on
board.......easy to class the set as....Quality.
I often think it a shame when on most compilations of this nature classic's
such as 'Bat out of Hell' and 'American Pie' are so often presented in
shortened version, both being worthy of being included in full.
( maybe that's just me ? )
overall however I have to say the compilation is full of wall to wall
( if you happen to be a trucker, pull over at a Truck stop, grab a coffee
and bacon butty, and instead of having to curse budding 'Hamilton's' and
'Alonso's' carving you up on the highway's, sit back and enjoy the tracks
on this brilliant compilation........worth adding to your collection, no
