Some of the Rick Springfield best-of's don't contain the b-side Believe In Me. This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard and is an absolute must for Springfield collectors. I rate it as his opus in terms of Brian Wilson's God Only Knows. This set gets a 5 as a result of its inclusion' but lots of other good stuff here as well.

I love this album. Great mix of classics. Jessie's girl is a classic. I can't wait to hear his new album, Songs for the End of the World.

This is a really tremendous collection of Rick's music spanning his entire career. He personally had a hand in picking each song so it is not just the 'hits' but songs that mean something. Included is a personal note by Rick explaining what each song means to him, what it is about, what was going on in his life at the time of writing it, and whay it is still important. I have been a fan since I was a crazy teenager with my first crush so listening to each song also brings back my own memories about where I was in life when I first heard each song. I still have all of Rick's records but love that I can now listen in the car or anywhere else. If you are even a mild fan, this collection is worth getting. The songs are great, the notes are wonderful to read and I can't help but smile everytime I turn it on.

I have been a loyal 30 year + Rick Springfield fan and this is THE BEST album for real Rick fans. It spans the life and career of Rick Springfield from his early "Comic Book Heroes" album to "Living in Oz" . Classics like "Speak To The Sky" and rare cuts including "Believe in Me" and "Take a Hand" are so great to hear. "Me and Johnny", "Human Touch" and "Souls" ( a song written about his wife Barbara) really transport you back in time. Memories of the movie "Hard To Hold" with "State Of The Heart" and "Love Somebody" and the very heartfelt "My Father's Chair" will really remind you of the amazing songwriter Rick is and "Eleanor Rigby" back from his early days will blow you away! One of my favorites now that I've seen Rick's "Stripped Down" live tour is "An Ordinary Girl" . A song you won't hear on any of his albums! It was especially written for the love of is life.. Barbara.. who he affectionately refers to as "Barbie". I play this album all the time in my car and with continuous songs on (2) discs I really hate to get to my destination. "Working Class Dog" , "I Get Excited" "Jessie's Girl" and "It's Always Something" always put a smile on my face. The quality of these recordings makes it that much more worth the purchase. I feel like Rick is serenading me on my way to work and rocking me all the way home with all of his hits! Buy this album.... It's the best Rick Purchase you will make in the New Year!

This is just a renamed cd of the written in rock 2 cd set . I prefer written . Plus both versions like all of the BMG/Universal remasters are not done very well . Rock candy that put out living in oz and Tao should get all of Springfield albums and do it right .

This is Rick's best collection, to date. It has all his best from his wide-span career... from his Australian days once leaving Zoot (Eleanor Rigby) to his early American Seventies success (Speak to the Sky, Take a Hand), and all his best throughout his Eighties and Nineties, through today, career. LOVE IT!
