I originally bought this album for Uptown Uptempo Woman, but found that both CD's were crammed with fantastic songs. Ride Like The Wind being one of my favorites! Yes, there are a few tracks I can think of that should be on this album, but you can't fit anymore on!! Maybe a part 2 is in order?!

Just by looking at the album cover, you can tell there's some confusion as to the theme of this album. There's an abandoned piano in the foreground, but of the six photos on the wall, four depict performers playing guitars, not pianos. So it's not surprising that there should be a few unthematic oddities in the music selection. We get the standards: Hornsby's 'The Way It is', Cohn's 'Walking in Memphis', Simon & Garfunkel's 'Bridge over Troubled Water' etc. But then CD#2 is kicked off by 'Private Investigations', a surprise choice to the many who would not classify Dire Straits as a keyboard band. Just two artists get two tracks included: Elton John (fine) and Rod Stewart (??).
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.

This is a review by someone who has actually used his hard earned cash to buy something as opposed to the increasing number of reviewers who are getting huge numbers of free samples. Could we get lucky and get some free samples ourselves? No, because they either work for Amazon or have a link to some dodgy way of writing a 5-star review. Beware Amazon, we will not put up with it. PRODUCT REVIEW - Amazingly I read the play list before purchasing it, hence its fine! good value.

I heard this playing in my hairdresser and thought it had a terrific combination of songs....plenty of Michael Macdonald, Christopher Cross, a John Hiatt etc to bring back memories of 20-30 years ago. Really enjoyable for people of a certain age! Also the price I paid was an absolute snip.

These are very good CD's but include some songs that are not strongly piano backed or led e.g. Private Investigations; some which are strong e.g. The Way It Is, Walking In Memphis; Bridge Over Troubled Water etc. and some which were missed e.g. McArthur Park, After the Dance [great offbeat chords] etc. But you can't please everyone and at 36 tracks [2 CD's] there is enough here to enjoy and therefore represents good value.

This is SO much more than THE PIANO - it is fantastic music to play in the car or at home (bought 2 copies to have in both places) have also bought several for presents for people of all ages.If I could have compiled a CD of my favourite tracks, I couldn't have chosen better. A MUST buy - you won't be disappointed I promise!

There are 36 tracks and only one I don't like is Rupert Holmes' Escape (The Pina Coldada Song), which still leaves the rest to enjoy over and over again.
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.
