Works well as a Quarterflash best-of. Glad they included songs that were not on any of the albums, like Night Shift (from the movie) and Don't Be Lonely, the B-side from Harden My Heart (also used in a movie). The best songs are definitely the ones that feature Rindy Ross's sexy vocals and sax work.
Here's the down side: at 50 minutes, they could have included a few more songs. Valerie and Williams Avenue are two great ones from the first album that I would have liked to have on here. Another one or two from the last (and most underrated) album would have been welcome, too.
Liner notes are okay, but a bit brief. Mention a little of the history of the band and well-known songs. Interesting note on where the name Quarterflash came from.

Rindy Ross and Quarterflash could have been among the last of the great classic rock bands, but the lush, synthesized sounds of the '80s took their toll on this fabulous band, and the group stopped recording after only three albums. Still, within the space of those three records, Quarterflash managed to churn out three big hits, including one of the most memorable singles of the entire decade, "Harden My Heart."

This collection, while good, could have been better. (But isn't that true of most greatest-hits packages?) The major problem with this collection is the inclusion of "Eye To Eye" and "Critical Times." Both are fine songs, for would-be power ballads, but Rindy Ross doesn't sing them. The guy on vocals has a fairly bland voice compared to Rindy Ross' Pat-Benatar-like pipes, and his songs interupt the flow of the CD. If there had been two Rindy Ross songs included in place of those tracks, this would have been a five-star CD. The fact is, when someone thinks of Quarterflash, the image that comes to mind is Rindy Ross wailing on her sax in between delivering her fabulous vocals -- as far as the public was concerened, Rindy Ross *was* Quarterflash.

One stunning inclusion is "Don't Be Lonely," which was Quarterflash's contribution to the "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" soundtrack. I have always loved this song, and seeing it on this CD sealed the deal of whether or not I would buy the CD. A wonderful track! Other standout tracks include the terrific "Give Me The Right Kind Of Love" (why wasn't this a single?).

Fans of '80s music will enjoy this CD!

OK, so she's a saxophone playing school teacher who made it big in the early 80's. Aside from that, this is an awesome CD! No 80's collection is complete without it. And for the record, or is it CD, this disc has the full version of 'Find Another Fool'. I've heard of some 80's compilations that fade it out toward the end. That's not the case here. All the songs are the original hits as they appeared on their original albums back in the early 80's. No rerecords or editing here. All of the well known hits are here. If you are a fan of the early 80's music as I am. You had better grab this one before it's out of print. These tracks still sound as great as they did when they were new. It makes me long for the days when the music, the hair, and the hits were really big.

Very cool collection, but how could they possibly leave "Williams Avenue" (one of their best songs in my humble opinion) off of this disc? Quarterflash certainly found a little niche with their distinctive infusion of jazz, funk, rock and sultry vocals. A very tight and versatile band. Too bad they did not have a few more offerings for us to sample. In any event, this disc is well worth the investment.

I don't know why one review said "snore snore", but some of us who grew up with this group, and music such as this, still enjoy listening to it. I can't stand the head banging stuff my teen son listens to, and I continue buying 80s music which I like and grew up to. This is an excellent cd, highly recommend.

Quarterflash was one of the best groups of the 1980's! Led by Marv & Rindy Ross, they were originally called Seafood Mama. I actually remember seeing them on TV shows like "American Bandstand" and "Solid Gold"! Rindy is a great singer and saxophone player! For those who like to watch VH-1, they have been called a one-hit-wonder. "Harden My Heart" (which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart) was not Quarterflash's only hit! "Find Another Fool" peaked at #16, and "Take Me To Heart" peaked at #14! They also had four other singles that did not reach the Top 40, so they are not one-hit-wonders!
