Editorial Reviews

Punk legend Pat Benatar has no shortage of hits. And here they are collected, in a remastered set from Capitol Records. Compiling classics like, 'Love Is a Battlefield,' 'We Belong,' 'Hit me with Your Best shot' and her breakout single, 'Heartbreaker,' Greatest Hits is a definitive collection of Benatar's best songs. Expertly remastered by Evren Goknar at Capitol Records, Benatar's hits sound better than ever, with greater range and depth, displaying the punk rocker's true sound. For new and old fans alike, Pat Benatar's Greatest Hits is a sure bet.

Customer Reviews

This album brought back a lot of fond memories of the summers of my high school years!
Amazon Customer
As a fan of Pat Benatar, I've always found it hard to recommend a good compilation to people who ask me "which "greatest hits" CD should I buy?".
Rob Ez
The 1999 'Synchronistic Wanderings' anthology, although an excellent collection of hits and rarities, was simply lacking with the remastering.

It's about time! Previous Benatar remasters have been fair to poor, sounding like they were pulled from any random source rather than the original master tapes. The 1999 'Synchronistic Wanderings' anthology, although an excellent collection of hits and rarities, was simply lacking with the remastering. "Love Is A Battlefield", for example, sounded rather flat for a so-called remaster. The same could be said for "We Belong" and most of the other tracks. Then there was the 2002 'Classic Masters' release. Finally I thought Capitol got it right since I had bought other 'Classic Masters' releases from other acts and was greatly impressed. Again, Capitol failed to impress with it's rather flat mastering treatment.

'Greatest Hits' has been digitally remastered by Evren Goknar @ Capitol Mastering, Hollywood. Oddly enough, Evren also remastered 1999's 'Synchronstic Wanderings' anthology. However, Evren has done a much better job on this 2005 release! The differences on some tracks are striking. The audio is rich, full, clear, and sharp -- a depth unheard of in any previous releases.

FINALLY, Capitol got it right with this release! While many Benatar fans may be reluctant to pick up yet another "hits" release from the rocker the audio quality alone should hopefully be enough to entice a few of the audiophiles.

I popped this disc into my player hoping I wouldn't be let down. From hearing the beginning heavy drum beats of "Heartbreaker" I knew I was in for a real treat! The remastering here is superb! Finally we get "Love Is A Battlefield" and "We Belong" with depth and range! "Shadows Of The Night" has never sounded so heavy! It's nice to have here in it's better single version. "Invincible" actually has a punchy intro.

To say Pat Benatar's first state-side greatest hits CD was a disappointment would be an overwhelming understatement.

Best Shots was issued on Halloween of 1989, ushered in by a week-long prime time co-hosting stint on MTV, and the release of "One Love" as a single (borrowed from her previous studio offering, 1988s Wide Awake In Dreamland), but anyone scanning the tracklisting was left scratching their head as to why half of her hits were missing.

In what seemed like an effort to showcase the more "schlock-rock"-ish selections from her back catalag (a genre then enjoying it's last bursts of chart domination), Chrysalis Records and possibly Benatar herself ignored some of her strongest singles and sucked the fun right out of that decade-spanning retrospective. Still, being the only official, single disc Benatar collection, it went on to be a platinum seller.

Cut ahead nearly 16 years. The worldwide market has been flooded with no fewer than 30 generic "EMI Special Markets" compilations, a result of Chrysalis Records having folded in the early 90s, leaving their entire back catalog vulernable to being, er, whored-out. All such releases notoriously feature hideous, cheap inserts, random track selection and poor sound quality recycled from old analog transfers. They've certainly cooled many peoples desire for "yet another" greatest hits disc (most of all, probably her fans), but Capitol Records has now finally issued the DEFINITIVE Pat Benatar compilation.

You need this CD.

Pat Benatar: Greatest Hits is her first official single disc collection since Best Shots.

Finally-a one disc Greatest Hits by Pat Benatar that not only has all her Top 40 hits, but the one I was looking for-"Le Bel Age," which while not Top 40-it peaked at #54-was the song on MTV that finally got my interest. Lighter than most of her earlier hits, it was nevertheless peppered with the guitar-driven music that made her one of the 80's most formidable women. Or should I say Invincible?

Her debut single "Heartbreaker" with its racing guitar line, makes that song almost like a punk "Paranoid." This song features her distinctive vocal styles, nice and rough, and a higher pitched disco voice. #23 for this song? No way! Higher? Way! That was followed by "We Live For Love," which like some of her other songs, sounded like what Blondie would've been like if they'd been hard rock, or Berlin when they had their hard edge in Count Three And Pray. Such ferocity, including some awesome guitar work by Neil Girardo, her producer/guitarist whom she ended up marrying, is also present in "Promises In The Dark," which only peaked at #38.

Then came her first Top Ten hit, and the one she's usually associated with. No, not an anthem for death row inmates on firing squad, but "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" had the right sound, distinctive crunchy hard guitar chords, pop hooks, Pat's gritty voice, and a catchy chorus that took it to #9 and gold sales.

Before Suzanne Vega's "Luka," Benatar did her own sobering story of child abuse in "Hell Is For Children." She is stronger and blunter: "you shouldn't have to pay with your bones and your flesh," "Be daddy's girl and don't tell me Mommy a thing." compared to Vega's lyricism. "You Better Run," a cover of the Rascals song, has fiercer guitar crunching than "Best Shot" in this angry song against a partner who's no good.
