Format: Audio CD
They call this album the ultimate. Indeed, it is the best single collection of Gary Glitters music ever put out. Spanning two discs, it traces 25 years of music (1972 to 1997), during which time Gary Glitter was among the biggest stars, having a world wide profile of hit singles and sell out tours.

His biggest hits included "Rock N Roll", "Leader Of The Gang", "Do You Wanna Touch Me", "I Love You Love Me Love", "Always Yours" and so on... these songs helped to define an era of Rock. As the 1970s drew to a close, Glitter had also recorded Country, Disco and Ballads and while his songs charted, he was no longer able to reach number 1, "Oh Yes, You're Beautiful" had given him an additional Number 2 success and the classic disco/rock number "Little Boogie Woogie" had also charted (Shakin' Stevens would later cover this, bringing it back into the top 40 in the 1980s), but Glitter was facing bankruptcy (he had made - and spent- over 5 million pounds by 1979).

He went on to a career as a stage actor in the rock horror show, but was soon making new hit's, with "Then She Kissed Me", in 1981, followed by "Dance Me Up" in 1985, and Christmas of that year saw "Another Rock And Roll Christmas" go top 10, and it remains one of the top 30 Christmas song hits of all-time in the United Kingdom.

Later success included the single "Through The Years", it's parent album, his own restaurant in London, Many TV and Radio appearances, including hosting an episode of Top Of The Pops, other artists covering his material (such as Joan Jett, Oasis and Generation X), More success as a stage actor, and the song "Rock Hard Men" (included here).
