2007 two CD set from the Popabilly crooner. Shakin' Steven's can truly claim the '80s, in chart terms, were his. Indeed he spent more time on the UK chart than any other artist during that decade, racking up no less than 27 top 30 hits of which four hit the top spot and a further seven breached the Top 5. He's sold in excess of a staggering seven million singles to date. A loyal, predominantly female fan base ensured 'Shaky's' success and it's one that puts him in with the Beatles and Elton John who can claim the same chart domination for the '60s and the '70s respectively. This selection contains all those hits as indicated and more. 37 tracks.
An excellent round-up of the 15 hit singles that, between late 1980 and fall 1984, saw Spandau Ballet transcend every prediction ever levelled at their music, and establish themselves among the most versatile British bands of their era. From the utterly convincing white boy Funk of the early "To Cut A Long Story Short", "The Freeze", "Musclebound" and "Chant No 1", through the bodyswerve to ballad-ville that ushered in the age of "True" and "Gold", and onto the near-anthemic guitar pop of "Only When You Leave" and "Highly Strung", The Singles Collection suffers only from its failure to tell the tale in strict chronological fashion.
For 21 years, Scottish Pop band Deacon Blue have kept their fans happy and the charts busy with hit singles, hot selling albums and sold-out tours. The band's hitmaking formula falls somewhere in between the slickness of Sade and the quirkiness of Prefab Sprout, yet they are constantly evolving, musically. This compilation celebrates their anniversary with 16 of their biggest hits ('Dignity', 'Real Gone Kid', 'Your Swaying Arms', etc) plus three brand new tracks: 'Bigger Than Dynamite', 'Haunted' and 'One About Loneliness'.
Creedence Clearwater Revival's golden era of hit singles (fall of 1968 through spring of 1972) rivals that of any band in rock 'n' roll history. The Southern-flavored quartet from El Cerrito, Calif., turned out 17 hits in a 44-month stretch, nine of them in the Top 10, five of them in the Top 5. Fantasy Records is proud to present The Singles Collection, a two-CD, one-DVD box with a slip case, containing all of the band's U.S. singles – 30 songs in all.
