The Best of the Best - Volume 1

With two live albums and a greatest hits already in their catalogue, we really didnít need another compilation, but itís pretty standard when you change labels and, as far as ďbest ofísĒ go, they did a good job. They packaged it well and picked a good batch of songs, but more importantly, they threw on a couple of new tracks. That always makes shelling out new money for old music a little easier to swallow. And if youíre a fan then the two previously unreleased tracks are songs that you will want to add to your collection. Unreal is a song that Blackie has been kicking around for a while and finally finished, and the other is a surprisingly good cover of an Elton John song. --Scott
