Of all of the Greatest Hits' collections that Air Supply has released, this is by far the best and most complete one out. This contains 18 of Air Supply's best songs. The period covered starts in the early 80s with "Lost in Love" and goes to 1995 with "News From Nowhere".
Air Supply really went through three phases. Phase 1 was from 1976 through 1980 -this was before they had commerical success and most of these songs are hard to find and only available on imports. Phase 2 was the most successful commercial period for Air Supply going from 1980 with the "Lost in Love" album, through the "Greatest Hits" album. Phase 3 was less commercially successful, yet the creativity didn't disappear during this phase. On the "Ultimate Air Supply" collection, Phases 2 and 3 are what is included. It would have been nice to see some Phase 1 songs, but it doesn't take away from the quality of the album. One thing to note, if you are looking at other Air Supply collections of hits, this is the most complete. In fact every song from "Greatest Hits" (which really focuses on Phase 2) is on this collection.
The nice thing about this CD is it chronicles all of the songs in the album order. The liner notes are excellent and feature short commentary by Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell. Although the commentary is short, it gives you a lot of insight into the songs as well as some of the producers Air Supply worked with (Clive Davis, Jim Steinman). The liner notes do open with a chronicle of the band's history written by Michael Hill. This chronicle does talk about some of the Phase 1 work that was done by Air Supply.

I first heard of Air Supply via their contribution on the Ghostbusters soundtrack, "I Can Wait Forever." That was a nice piano ballad with a sizzling rock guitar and strings during the chorus, with highlighted by Russell Hitchcock's Dennis DeYoung or Mickey Thomas-like vocals, depending how high he decided to sing. That song isn't on The Ultimate Air Supply, which contains all their Top 40 hits.

After that, it was "Just As I Am" from their self-titled 1985 album, which reached #19. This was the time they were on the decline, although they still fared well on the Adult Contemporary charts. A similar style, but not as good as "I Can Wait Forever." I also learned they did Jennifer Rush's "The Power of Love" before her own version charted the following year. Not a bad version, even though it bombed at #68, but it hit #13 on the AC charts.

What I'd missed before was a string of Top Five singles starting with "Lost In Love." This #3 hit demonstrated the veritable team of singing duo Graham Russell, with the lower-ranged voice, which were heard on the verses, and Russell Hitchcock's higher ranged vocals, which sang the choruses, gentle guitars and strings, harmonies, and in this song, a few spacey synths. In other words, this was radio-friendly easy love songs or lost love pop a la latter day Chicago or Melissa Manchester for the Adult Contemporary charts, where it spent 6 weeks at #1.

"All Out of Love," their next venture, was better, spending 4 weeks at #2, kept away from the top by Diana Ross's "Upside Down" and Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust." The emotional strings may be overblown in the final sections, but it helps the song, and my enjoyment. Chartwise, this was the 18th biggest hit of 1980, while "Lost In Love" was the 25th the same year.

Like all successful, countless Air Supply hits collections have beeen floating around on the market for years, most of them not good with missing tracks and bad sound. It wasn't until Arista Records released "Ultimate Air Supply" that fans stopped complaining and got a hits set that would please both casual and hardcore fans.

The team of Russel Hitchcock and Graham Russell were the Carpenters of the 1980s', with a string of "easy listening" ballads that crossed over into pop radio and became huge hits. Their first 7 singles alone made Billboard's top five on the pop charts. All those hits are here, from the upbeat, celebratory numbers ("Every Woman In The World", "Even The Nights Are Better" (which, like Russell said, really does sound like Chris Cross's theme from "Arthur") to the heartbreaking breakup songs ("All Out Of Love"). As expected, their two most popular hits are included, "All Out.." and my all - time favorite, the Jim Steiman masterpiece "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All". The latter song I think is truly one of the greatest power ballads of all time. This song did indeed mark a comeback for the group. They had been out of the top 30 for about a year when this song took them to number 2 all over the place. It was also a great time for Steinman. The week the song peaked on the pop charts, the number one song was Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse Of The Heart", marking one of the few times that a writer wrote the top 2 singles on the charts. And lurking in the lower half of the top 40 was Barry Manilow's Steiman collaboration "Read 'Em And Weep", which made the top 20 in January of 1984, becoming the ballad crooner's last top 60 hit.

But enough history. Also included is a fare amount of album tracks and rarities.
