Editorial Reviews

Doing their best to put the nightclub tragedy behind them, Great White have been on the road and in the studio. This disc looks back to the '80s/'90s cuts that put their bluesy, rambunctious hard rock on the map: the hits Rock Me; Save Your Love; Once Bitten Twice Shy; The Angel Song; House of Broken Love; Call It Rock 'n' Roll 15 tracks!

Format: Audio CD
Capitol Records shows with this release that they are capable of compiling an excellent single CD compilation of Great White. To be sure, this is only the 3rd CD anthology from Capitol and by far the best. There are many other releases on other labels that do not include these original studio versions, but rather re-recorded or live versions and should not really be considered in the grand scheme of things if you really like the Capitol output.

The sound quality is really good, but the packaging is rather weak. There is a single paper insert with no biography or liner notes to speak of inside a standard jewel case. The sequencing is not chronological, but you can burn a disc or create a playlist on your iPod and sequence the songs any way you like.

The biggest news here is the inclusion of "Lady Red Light" from 1987's "Once Bitten" album that did not make the earlier 2 CD's released from Capitol. 2001's Greatest Hits had 3 live songs (including "House Of Broken Love" and "Desert Moon") and a Blues Mix of "Face The Day" that are replaced here with the original studio versions. I like this improvement as well as Capitol including all 13 singles from 1984-1992. The 2 remaining songs are "All Over Now" from Once Bitten and "She Only" from 1989's Twice Shy album.

Some fans may wish for a Led Zeppelin cover or two, but you really can't go wrong with what is here. Capitol did a great job of maxing out this disc as well, with the running time coming in at 79:06. All in all, Absolute Hits is a rock solid 5 star collection with no major MIA's - and these days that is very hard to come by.

All Hits up to 1992 all orignal versions (face the day is album version not the ep version) this is the best compilation of great white by far other compilations have rerecorded and live versions also they miss lots of hits. This is all their classics!

Before buying this CD, I'd only heard 2 or 3 radio hits, so I wasn't that familiar with this band. Upon first hearing, I was amazed by how consistently good the songs are. With only 1 or 2 exceptions, every song is a winner, and there are plenty of them (15) to enjoy. Straight-ahead hard rock at its best - highly recommended!

Great White is a pretty good rock band altogether, and a pretty good example of 80's rock and roll, ranking right up there w/Poison, Motley Crue (forgive me if I don't get all fancy-shmancy with the punction there),Dokken, etc. They had some very memorable hits, such as'Rock Me' and 'Once Bitten twice Shy', but there are 13 other songs on this album that you might not have heard as often that are also pretty good. Not excellent, but still, very good songs which you can crank loud when rolling down the highway or having a big, loud party. Try it out!

I was never a fan of Great White. Music is too predictable except for "Rock Me". This song is the reason I bought the CD.
