The Ultimate Collection of Hooked on Classics changes the order of tracks of the three original Louis Clark conducted Hooked on Classics albums in order to fit them onto two CDs, instead of the three available elsewhere. So with this version, you get all the tracks and don't have to switch CDs so often, and it costs less!

Hooked on Classics came into being after the success of "Stars on 45" which segued clips of Beatles and other pop songs together over a disco beat. Louis Clark came up with the brilliant idea of using clips of popular classical music instead, to the same format. The Hooked on Classics single went top ten in both UK and USA, and the album was a feast of famous classical music clips grouped in themes. Not everyone liked the idea, but there's no denying that the music was brilliantly performed by the RPO and appealled to many people who liked the idea of having a huge range of classical music on one album. Not only that, you can dance to it! On certain tracks, such as Hooked on Romance, the dance pace was slowed down into a "ballad" version of the Hooked on Classics style.

Whether you go for this version of the complete Hooked on Classics or the originally sequenced version, will be a matter of personal preference. I went for this one as I dont like swapping CDs more than necessary, but the original version might be more listenable. Either way, this album is great fun.
