I've got Steve Miller Band. What's yours?
Bob Marley & The Wailers- Legend
Linda Ronstadt- Greatest Hits
Al Green - Greatest Hits
I’ve listened to James Taylor’s greatest hits album more times than I could ever count.
When I really started listening to Stevie Wonder it was through a "Definitive Collection" CD, then I branched out and listened to his albums. Greatest hits albums are never enough for me, usually. I always love the deep cuts. And with Stevie it's all gold.
Steve Miller Band is a definite for me! Had that as long as I can remember. Also a +1 for James Taylor. I’d probably add another three to the list: Abba, America, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. I owned all three and never had another album by any of those artists.
The Eagles are a no-brainer. I love their entire catalog, but in general, you can’t go wrong with the greatest hits.
RUSH CHRONICLES hahaha but for real. Yes. Rush Chronicles.
Queen's Greatest Hits is a great one. Everything mentioned so far is in my collection. I've worn out the Eagles and James Taylor have been worn out.
The CCR one has to be one of the best. I must have listened to that Steve Miller greatest hits 5000 times, but it’s weird how Ive never really cared to go see him live.
As you have all of my LP's, I am sure you have quite a few of 'greatest hit albums.' ;)
I guess for me the question is whether you miss anything important about a band of you only listen to the GH and not the albums. In that light, for me it would be: Billy Joel, The Doors, CCR.
