Format: Audio CD
I first heard Eddie Money in the seventies when I was a college radio disc jockey. With a voice like Johnny Ray and a great gunslinger guitar player in Jimmy Lyon, they were like a Stax Volt/Motown/RocknRoll Glimmer Twins. I interviewed him for the University of Georgia daily newspaper and gave him a copy of the glowing review I had written of his debut LP. I later had the pleasure of opening six dates of his "No Control" tour with my own band. His new gunslinger at the time, Steve Farris, went on to be a member of eighties chart toppers Mr. Mister, and played on one of my own records. Nice guys. Now, if you put this CD in perspective, it seems to underplay the considerable role that Lyon played in that it eliminates some key tracks that he played on, most notably "Trinidad", "Gimme Some Water" and "Jealousys". Ed wasn't happy about Jimmy's departure, and the magic never quite surfaced again for the band. Nonetheless, Money was able to deliver a lot of great radio songs in the years that followed, and most of those songs are here on this CD. The hit hits from "No Control" and the terrific single, "Take Me Home Tonight", prove that this man deserves to be noted as a great vocalist and, ultimately, a survivor.

I have a problem with reviewers who probably have all of their favorite artist(s)' albums and go on record complaining that this song or that song wasn't on the "greatest hits" or "best-of" collection. I was a fan of Eddie Money's from the beginning, and was a little surprised to find that one reviewer thought his debut album was lame. I for one thought it was a super start to his career, with a couple of huge hit singles (the shorter single version of "Two Tickets" is even hotter than the album version...good luck finding it outside of eBay or one of those places you find in Goldmine that specialize in 45RPM singles only, if you find a copy of that one, it's worth your effort to track it down...if you're wondering, it isn't an edited version but a total remake with more guitars and more harmonies).

The additional tracks: Peace in Our Time, Stop Steppin' On My heart, Looking Thru the Eyes of a Child and the live version of Where's the Party are all typically radio-friendly Eddie Money tracks (that is definitely NOT a complaint) that show him in his element of being a rock-solid performer. His live shows, of which I've seen several, will put any doubt aside. If you have all the original albums these songs came from, the bonus material makes this one worth your money. I'm still a fan and it's all good.

I love Eddie Money's voice.Its so different from everyone else.This greatest hits CD is a must for anyone who's enjoyed his music over the years.The early hits,Baby hold on,Two Tickets to Paradise,Shakin," and "Think I'm in Love" are all here,and the songs that put Money on top again in the late 80's,"Take me home,Peace in our time," and my all time favorite,"I wanna go back." This is the first song I play when I'm on vacation,lying on the beach."I wanna go back and do it all over,but I can't go back I know.."The live version of "Where's the party?" is great,with the audience singing along.There's about three other newer songs,and there fantastic also.Like the other reviewer said,"This Greatest Hits CD is worth the Money."

This album is definately Eddie Money at his best. It is a wonderful CD with all of Eddie's greatest hits on it. I just saw him in concert last night and these are the songs that he played and he still plays them well.

I bought this when it was originaly release in 1989 on cd and played it to death, literally. I have purchased other Eddie Money "Hits" packages and this is my favorite. It covers all the bases and rocks the listener through each song. A must have for any Eddie Money fan looking for the hits.

Now this guy knows how to get an audience tuned in. A wildly hot and rockin' compilation that makes you wonder why his career ever had to informally wither away. Sure he's getting older, but this megastar will always know how to belt out the right tunes. This greatest hit package isn't something with a few favorites included. At least half a dozen Billboard inclusives are here on disc, making you wish your local rock DJ only had better common sense. TWO TICKETS TO PARADISE, I WANNA GO BACK, BABY HOLD ON, WALK ON WATER, TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT (BE MY BABY), PEACE IN OUR TIME and THINK I'M IN LOVE gets listeners feeling like music does have special meaning. These hits plus many others prompt you either to hug your loving gal to bits, gather with a group of buddies and a stack of cold beer, or have a fun time relaxing all on your own. Seem all too simple or fantasized to be legit? Eddie will sing it to ya... he'll let you know how to keep in control shakin' all night long, having a blast where the best parties get together and take action.

EDDIE MONEY-GREATEST HITS/SOUND OF MONEY: Would be New York City cop turned raspy soul-rocker EDDIE MONEY is barely given his due on this surprisingly incomplete summary of career makers. Sure, many of the basic classics from his late seventies/early eighties chart hey-day are here...well crafted high water marks BABY HOLD ON and TWO TICKETS TO PARADISE, sultry RONNIE SPECTOR duet TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT and back seat window steamer SHAKIN'...however, too much space is given over to so-so non hits like WHERE'S THE PARTY and STOP STEPPIN' ON MY HEART. Funky pop contenders off his sturdy second album LIFE FOR THE TAKING should have made the final cut, namely the sax-driven RNB groover MAYBE I'M A FOOL (a Top 30 single) plus explosive efforts ROCK & ROLL THE PLACE and GIMME SOME WATER. The same could be said for his debut platter's superb SMOKEY ROBINSON cover YOU REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME or the reflective TRINIDAD from his third disc. MONEY and his followers certainly deserve better than this quickie cash-in; save your pennies for the more definitive collection BEST OF.

RATING: THREE BILLS
