There are some tracks I hadn't heard for decades -- e.g. Roger Daltrey's 'Giving it all away' (nice to hear once more, but in comparison to the rest, it's one of the weakest tracks on the album). Colin Blunstone's 'I don't believe in Miracles' is also rarely heard these days.
The tracks selected take us from 1969 (Rod Stewart's theme for 'The Office'!) to 1991 (Mark Cohn), but it's probably the 1970s and early 1980s classics that are at the heart of this collection: e.g. Andrew Gold's outstanding composition 'Lonely Boy' and Christopher Cross's 'Ride Like the Wind'. On the latter track, you hear Michael Omartian's superb Bosendorfer piano, as used on several Steely Dan albums, along with Michael McDonald's backing vocals. McDonald is also the lead vocalist on the selected Doobie Brothers track, 'What a Fool Believes'.
The focus is on pop songs and ballads, and excludes soul and dance music. This is white man's music. (I wonder whether the selectors realised that of the 36 tracks they chose, none is sung by either a woman or a non-white.Read more ›
Disc one's top highlights are Bruce Hornsby And The Range's driving The Way It Is, Billy Joel's heartfelt Piano Man, Rod Stewart's gentle Reason To Believe and Marc Cohn's storming Walking In Memphis.
From disc two its Elton John's masterpiece which is Tiny Dancer, Randy Edelman's bittersweet Uptown Uptempo Woman and Warren Zevon's very scary Werewolves Of London.
The rest are not far behind, a top class collection.
