Editorial Reviews

These San Francisco-based pop-rockers consistently scaled heights of the charts throughout the '80s. Fusing '60s R&B, U.K. bar band vigor and good time rock 'n roll, their spirited sound netted a pair of #1 albums and a slew of signature hits. Many of their biggest are featured on this 16-track collection,Iincluding the Billboardr Top 10 singles I Want A New Drug, If This Is It, and The Heart Of Rock & Roll, plus the #1 smashes Stuck With You and The Power Of Love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, but a little incomplete May 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I really loved Huey Lewis and the News when they were at their hit-making peak in the mid and late 1980s (and I continue to love them). This collection includes most of their terrific bar-band hits. SPORTS is well-represented with tracks such as "Heart of Rock and Roll" and "I Want a New Drug." I'm also pleased that two of their earlier hits are here: "Workin' for a Livin" (which could be their theme!) and "Do You Believe In Love" (which sounds better than ever). However, two of my favorite songs from the band are not here: "Hip to Be Square" (which went to #3) and "Jacob's Ladder" (their 3rd #1 song). Without those songs, the collection seems a bit incomplete. The band includes several songs recorded for this CD, and they sound fine. However, these aren't the hits we really love from Huey! Overall, a good collection that should satisfy most fans and hopefully make the band some new ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars These guys ROCK! August 21, 2005
By Gully
Format:Audio CD
I have two complaints about this collection: No "Hip To Be Square" and no "Back in Time". I'm especially upset about the omission of H2BS because that is my favorite Huey tune and my original LP was destroyed in a basement flood.

Now for the good news: All the tracks on the collection are superb. The remastering is crystal clear and pitch perfect.

My favorite of the songs here, and one of my all time favorite songs period is "Heart of Rock and Roll". Sadly, I don't live in one of the cities mentioned, but I can imagine the thrill for those who do when they hear the name of their town. (I used to work in Oklahoma City, so that is when I cheer).

"I Want a New Drug" was something of a scandal when it came out, but when people took the time to actually LISTEN to the lyrics, they understood it was in NO WAY pro-drug song. Quite the contrary!

I recommend this collection to anyone who likes feel-good music, but a little LOUD because this is a kicking set of songs!

3.0 out of 5 stars THIS NEWS DOESN'T DELIVER WHAT IT BEST COULD May 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
A respectable but not fantastic `Greatest Hits` CD, including quite a few band effective works. Perhaps a four-star rating but I don't believe this group/label effort counts as one level below perfection. As brought to attention by other reviewers, significant epic tunes have been left out in this chart summary. The likes of Walking On A Thin Line, Hope You Love Me Like You Say You Do, Jacob's Ladder and Hip To Be Square all easily have been replaced by say maybe the last four tracks. The addition or inclusion of Back In Time, Perfect World, and I Know What I Like would also have been to most every fan's credit - giving the boot perhaps to songs #5, 7 and 10. Were this arrangement such applied, this Best Of disc would then furthermore have been complete. In comparison, taking notice of the `Beatles 1` CD and its porportions, I'd think maybe even all the above hits(+) could somehow have found space to be included. However, because Mr. Lewis and his group players continue to so-call `humble themselves` with their other compilations on the market, fans remain left basically with slim musical pickin`s. As far as I am concerned, any band history crackdown represents similar to that of files constituting a computer registery. If any or several important songs (files, folders, etc.) are missing, the rest don't seem to run nearly as best they should or drop out completely. Until the appropriate anthology is released (and who indeed knows when), support followers I guess have no choice but to make do with what today is available...

3.0 out of 5 stars This is the Best? December 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Okay, so Huey Lewis & The News wasnt the biggest band of the 80s, but with the success of "Back to the Future," they were pretty popular and had some decent hits. This is supposed to be a collection of, "The Best" of Huey Lewis & the News, but h0ow can it be "the best when it is missing some of their BIGGEST hits?
Noticeably absent:
"Hip to be Square"
"Back in Time"
How can it be a greatest hits collction when it's missing two of their biggest? Huey Lewis wasn't big enough to warrant a second volume of their greatest hits, so everything should be available on one disc.
It's likely they couldn't secure the rights to "Out of Time" but I find that odd considering Power of Love was also from the "Back to the Future" soundtrack and they got that. Regardless of whether they could get the rights to the song, the fact that it is missing makes this CD lacking, and not truely deserving of the title "Best of."

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool 80's music! April 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Huey Lewis & The News are a cool band from a cool decade. Their unique sound fuses together a broad spectrum of musical talents. In addition to guitar, bass, and drums, they also play Sax, Keyboards, and Huey plays a harmonica on occasion. This is a great collection from their heyday, 12 greatest hits and 4 new tracks from '96. I liked the new tracks fairly well, but the greatest hits are my fav tracks. Anyone who remembers the 80's will know these great songs. The classic 'The Power Of Love' from the "Back To The Future" soundtrack is my fav. Also 'I Want A New Drug', 'The Heart Of Rock-n-Roll', 'Heart And Soul', 'Stuck With You'(my 2nd fav), 'Doing It All For My Baby', 'Bad Is Bad', and 'Do You Believe In Love' are here. 'Trouble In Paradise'(live), and an accapella track 'But It's Alright'. All songs are digitally remastered so they sound even better than ever. Cool songs from a cool decade are what you'll get with this collection. If you don't have it, get it. ROCK ON!

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing some great songs
This is a very good collection of hits from HLN, but there are some songs not on here that would have made it so much better. All in all a good representation, however.
