Product Description

"America's best band is...Canadian." - Rolling Stone * 14 essential tracks * 2 previously unreleased tracks Blue Rodeo are one of Canada's greatest bands, having sold almost four million albums worldwide. Greatest Hits collects 14 essential tracks on one exceptional CD, pulled from their catalog of nine albums. Featured are the poignant ballad "Try," the guitar-powered "Side of the Road" (from the group's psychedelic masterpiece Nowhere to Here), and their recent hit "Bulletproof." Two previously unreleased recordings - their unique take on the Bee Gee's classic "To Love Somebody" (complete with fiddles and pedal steel) and a live version of "After The Rain" - make this, their first ever compilation, even more special.

Amazon.com

The early vanguards of a Toronto music scene that would eventually produce Tragically Hip, Jane Siberry, Cowboy Junkies, and other standouts, Blue Rodeo's stateside profile never quite matched its Canadian acclaim--and we're definitely the poorer country for it. Frontmen Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor may anchor their songs deep in tasteful range of American roots rock , but there's nary a trace of slavish devotion to any of it. Indeed they inject a countrified, Gram Parsons sensibility into a simmering cover of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody," and shimmering Big Star/Twilley power pop hooks to "Rose Colored Glasses." Be it the folk-evocations of "Hasn't Hit Me Yet" and neo-country "Bad Timing" or the spare, sensuous ballad "Dark Angel" (featuring Sarah McLachlan on piano and backing vocals) and dreamy drone of "Side of the Road," Blue Rodeo takes some familiar bottles and fills them with heady new musical wine. --Jerry McCulley

This is a nice collection of their greatest hits up in Canada because I don't think they have ever had one here. America's loss! Nice sound with great harmonies that is very reminiscent of many great `60's bands like The Byrds, CSN and The Hollies. They even do an amazing cover of The Bee Gees "To Love Somebody" with strings and horns which has never been previously released. Their songs go from pop to country to rock to folk and even to some great psychedelia (check out "Diamond Mine"). They sound like five different bands that are each very talented. Sarah McLachlan's voice and piano appear on one song..."Dark Angel".

Well, what can I say... I can't say that I've ever heard Blue Rodeo on American radio, but then again I just got into indie radio a short time ago. In any case, I've been a Blue Rodeo fan since "Tremolo" and built my collection around that one and I was taken aback that there were no songs from "Tremolo". Two of Blue Rodeo's best works are not represented here: "Tremolo" and "The Days In Between".
Personal critiques aside, I suppose this is a good springboard for newcomers to the band as they will pretty well get a solid helping of some of the best songs that Keelor and Cuddy had to offer from 1987-2002. I will say though, that the album does drag as the last five songs are slower in pace, but still enjoyable (I exclude "Bulletproof". I never liked this one. I think "Comet" should have been the first single from "Palace of Gold").
You be the judge! Enjoy!

Greatest Hits 1 serves as a singles collection and a best-of compilation. Contrary to some of the confused reviewers, this was never intended to be a substitute for their essential classic albums "Casino," "Outskirts," "Diamond Mine" and "Five Days In July."

Although several essential songs from the band's repertoire are missing, those cuts can be found on the albums I mentioned. This CD is filled to the brim with single versions of some of their biggest hits in addition to 2 all-new recordings only available on this CD.

I've been a long time fan of Blue Rodeo...What can I say that's not already been said about one of Canada's favorite exports! If you have'nt listened to their alt-country/folk rock music before, this is agood place to start as it features a good selection of their greatest hits (Vol.1)
Highly recommended!!!!

Listening to this album brought me back to my highschool days in Ontario and days with my friends who listened to Blue Rodeo. The choice of songs is great, although a few more ballads would have made the whole album all the better and more complete. This is a great album from a very unique band!
