GREAT Idea, VERY WELL DONE
on June 17, 2010
Beautiful and clear remastering (2007) of the classic 1976 and 1980 compilations that in the USA were released in the late 80's on CD and have never been remastered (until now on this import!). All the original tracks are here (with one change - Someone To Lay Down Beside Me is the 3:58 single edit, not the 4:28 album version that appeared on the original GH Vol 2). All the pictures from the two original Greatest Hits LP's and CD's are here, too (the original red and blue album covers are also shown on the back cover). The new green cover with a classic photo from the mid 70's is a brilliant touch. New liner notes by Silvie Simmons.
Amazingly, some of these classics were not included on either Ronstadt's "Box Set" OR her "Very Best Of" CD (which together were the only remasters of Linda's Asylum music in the last 20 years - and both were missing many hits), so Silver Threads And Golden Needles (1973 version), Desperado, Love Has No Pride, How Do I Make You, Tumbling Dice, and Someone To Lay Down Beside Me appear here remastered for the first time. Highly Recommended!
