An enormous collection of classic Santana, The Ultimate Collection is a good introduction to this important artist containing a relatively complete and interesting collection of his '60s and '70s tracks. Fans may not need this, but it makes a good first step into his catalog for those who might be curious.
With such an abundance of great tracks that were never issued as singles, in many ways, a single-disc Joe Jackson best-of just doesn't cut it. That's where the extensive, three-disc comp Ultimate Collection comes in handy. While artist collections are usually aimed at the casual fan (in search of strictly an artist's best known tracks), the third disc of Ultimate Collection will definitely appeal to the hardcore fan, as it's the first-ever CD release of Jackson's soundtrack to Mike's Murder. Jackson's early, new wave direction is evident on such standouts as "Sunday Papers," "I'm the Man," "One More Time," and of course, "Is She Really Going Out With Him" (one complaint though – the omission of "Look Sharp").
With over 100 million albums sold in the course of a career now in its fourth decade, Billy Joel is one of the most beloved entertainers in the world. Now, for the first time on DVD, a comprehensive selection of Billy's innovative, visually compelling music videos have been brought together for The Ultimate Collection.
This collection can truly be called 'The Ultimate Collection' since it contains all the tracks they ever released. On this collection each track can be found as either a studio recording or a live recording.Disc one contains the complete debut album with some tracks from the second and third album. This disc gives the best example of how good Solution is. At their best they make progressive, jazzy music with references to Soft Machine and Supersister. The music is mainly instrumental with few vocals. But when they sing it sounds very nice. Disc two is less interesting. It starts good with a remaining track from 'Cordon Bleu', but with the fourth album Solution made more mainstream music. Most progressive music lovers will loose interest here.
This is another fabulous album from Russell, with all the favourites and a bonus live recording from the Royal Albert Hall. Anyone who enjoys the pure class of a brilliant operatic voice, will not be disappointed, by this marvellous mix of tracks.
