It is a must buy for Kenny Loggins fans!

The children's classic House On Pooh Corner from the days of Loggins and Messina is here and it sounds really good.

I don't think you can find a better collection of all of Kenny Loggins Best Songs.

This set is a MUST over the only previously available best of package, titled "Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" as it digs way deeper into his catalogue for many essential hits previously ignored and it is beautifully remastered to boot. I also appreciate how several key songs are played in their full original versions, instead of "single" versions that are tainting many greatest hits collections. Think of hearing "Convinction of the Heart" without it's full beggining.
Although I have been a fan for so many years, I had forgotten what a hitmaker Kenny Loggins was and hopefully the well is not dry. The man possesses such a beautiful voice and his lyrics are heartfelt, which is rare today. I know that many music critics dismiss many "soft rock" (not my categorization) artists, but this collection proves to me that the songs are great and not just because they remind me of great times, but because they really combine great songwriting, a soothing voice, and a melodic powerhouse that will not be ignored.
I don't give this release a full 5 stars ("only" 4+) because it omitted "Love Will Flow", which is an essential song, and the 2nd CD could have used some finetuning as some of his recent songs are not as strong as other material. My suggestion is to buy this great collection and make your own private 1 CD copy as I did. It was hard to try fit all MY essentials in only one CD, but I reluctantly left out "Danger Zone" to make my songs fit as I'll get my "Top Gun" era Kenny pleasure from the remastered soundtrack, which also includes "Dancing With The Boys". In a nutshell, I'd rather buy a collection such is this and trim it rather than buy a product that excludes important songs.

That's what those unfamiliar with Mr. Loggins will say over and over again when listening to this album. My wife said it four times on the first disc alone.
His Loggins & Messina cuts, coupled with his early solo work, have a classic 70's sound, and I mean that in a good way. It's a defining sound. You'll be surprised at the number of standards he's now responsible for.
His late 70's/early 80's songs also perfectly capture THAT era, with a smooth, catchy pop-rock sound hallmarked by "This Is It" and "Heart to Heart". I mean, he even does a duet with Journey's Steve Perry!
His 80's soundtrack work has those synth drums, keyboard fills and bouncy guitars that SCREAMS "oh-so-80's", and the movies "Footloose", "Top Gun", and "Caddyshack" (among others) had Mr.Loggins prominently featured during their key moments.
His more recent work is less distinctive, but no less enjoyable.
This is a smartly compiled set, with clearly improved sonics from the previous CD releases.

OK, I guess if this collection had included "Love Will Follow" from VOX HUMANA, then I could say it truly is perfect. (Side note: I highly recommend seeking out his hard-to-find LOVE SONGS collection since it does include that track and is a great CD overall.)
That being said, this is the most complete Kenny Loggins collection out there. It's a thorough career retrospective starting with his Loggins & Messina days and going all the way up to his last pop album. It's in chronological order with just a few variations that don't take away from the flow. And ALL of his well-known songs are here, even ones that were radio favorites and may not have been released as singles. I know, I know: Ultimately somebody will say, "But I can't believe they didn't put ______ on there!" Well, heck, we all have personal preferences when it comes to greatest-hits and best-of collections, but I think whoever compiled this one did an OUTSTANDING job. And they even included both the original version of "Pooh Corner" along with the updated version featuring Amy Grant. Very wise choice!
The sound quality on all the tunes is great. I haven't had the chance to check out the liner notes yet (I miss the days when I actually took the time to READ them!), but I seriously doubt that they would affect my rating.
If you're looking for THE definitive Kenny Loggins collection, here it is! Grab it while you can.

I was looking at the song line up and I was impressed. Kenny Loggins has been blessed with a distinctive voice and sound. He does not sound like other singers as well as Steve Perry,Luther Vandross,Micheal McDonald and The Late Marvin Gaye,Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. You know who they are without guessing.I bought the "Yesterday,Today and Tomorrow" cd like a lot of people.Don't get me wrong it is a great way to start. Most late comers usually buy the greatest hits collections of artists. Hey it's ok we all can't be fans from the on set. After purchasing that cd I found myself on a frantic search to find his back catalog of music inclusive of the "Loggins and Messina" period. The record company should have put this out from the onset.(Hello)
So start at these songs:Your mama don't dance,Danny's Song**,A Love Song,Whenever I call you friend,This is it*,I'm alright**,Heart to Heart**,Footloose*,Danger Zone,The Real Thing* and For the First Time***. and Return to Pooh Corner. What was missing is "Love" off the Return to Pooh Corner.Kenny is brillant he took a classic John Lennon song and made it his own.Johnson and Johnson used it for a baby ad. This 2 cd set is worth the money.YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED
