I picked up this gem in my local Walmart for $10.00, not bad at all! Viewing it from the standpoint of introducing Joan Jett and The Blackhearts to the younger generation I think it does an excellent job of representing Joan quite well. They will see the movie and if they like it they will want to know more about The Runaways and Joan Jett and will most likely come across this Greatest Hits on itunes or at F.Y.E. and check it out. The songs on here are HARD HARD ROCKIN' just the way I like it! A little bit from each album, kind of like a tease so hopefully they will buy the complete albums and become even bigger fans. I applaud Joan Jett or whoever produced this Greatest Hits compilation, alot of thought went into it I can tell.

Now, a little info about some of the songs. Tracks #2, #3 and #4 on the 1st CD (You Drive Me Wild, School Days and Love Is Pain) are all newly sung versions and I have to say THEY F*****G KICK ASS. It shows that Joan can still rock hard in case any idiots out there don't know it. Song #7 on the 1st CD (I Want You) is listed as previously unreleased. It was on the 1995 CD called "1979" which was only available from the Joan Jett Fan Club back then so I don't see how it is "previously unreleased". Anyway, that CD can be found here Joan Jett 1979

I wasn't that familiar with JJ & the Blackhearts or The Runaways music other a few songs I heard on the radio over the years ... I actually purchased this disc because I plan on seeing the Runaways film. Glad I did.
There's some GREAT STUFF here...JJ's the real deal - she's got rock in her soul.. The message she projects here also is LOUD & CLEAR: Gals CAN rock just as well as the Boys ..... What you get in this collection is straight-up-no-frills-no-pretensions RAW rock....Guaranteed to please .... THANKS FOR THE GREAT STUFF JOAN!!

I love this collection! All of the tracks were chosen by Joan for their special meaning to her. For example, "You Drive Me Wild" was the first song she ever wrote, "Backlash" was her first collaboration with Paul Westerberg, "You Don't Know What You've Got" marks the beginning of her partnership with Kenny Laguna...etc. The new recordings of older songs are epically delicious. Joan sounds better than ever.

HOWEVER, if you really want the best version of this greatest hits, DOWNLOAD IT! i-Tunes has an extra song, "I Love Playing With Fire", and this new recording is ESSENTIAL for any Joan Jett fan. For $20 at i-Tunes you can get 22 songs, an e-booklet with pics and lyrics, and 12 music videos. I'm no fan of downloading music, generally, because I like to have the disc and packaging and so on; but by all accounts, this cd doesn't have much of a booklet included.

I highly suggest going to [...] and checking out the greatest hits page, they have the backstories of all the tracks on the album.

And for all Joan Jett fans, this Runaways Mercury Albums Anthology is a great addition to your collection ;)

First off, no booklet is included at all, to see any type of liner notes (which are actually interesting) you gotta go to her website to see them. So the packaging is quite sparse with an outtake from the I LOVE ROCK-N-ROLL sessions from 1981 instead of a newer photo. (and it's in b&W).

Some songs I do not understand why they are on here: I'm Gonna Run Away, Activity GRRRL, I Want You...in place of better songs and actual hits. Also the 1:00 version of Love Is All Around is used instead of the full length version. Why? Also the Billboard top 100 Hits Little Liar, Dirty Deeds & Good Music are not included. WOuld have been nice to have the single version of Good Music on cd finally.

On the good side, the remakes of the Runaways tracks You Drive Me Wild & School Days are cool. Always loved these songs from the time I discovered Jett/Runaways. Love is Pain is also re-recorded to sound more like she does it live now.

I just want to start by saying this is a good 2-cd collection and i like the new versions of her Runaways songs.But it would have been nice to have all her nine top 40 hits included all together finally in one collection.Sadly most people know Joan for only a few songs, so to not have two of her hits Dirty Deeds #36 & Little Liar #19 included is a shame and a mistake in my opinion.Also the longer version of Love Is All Around would have been better than the 1 minute version.Dirty Deeds is not on any of her collections and only live versions of Little Liar on others.I read that Joan chose the songs and she should have left out four songs, You Don't Know What You've Got, I'm Gonna Run Away, Activity Girrl and I Want You which really isn't that good a song to have it on so many of her cd's anyway.She should have put like i said, Deeds, Liar, plus Change The World,I Love You Love Me Love,Good Music,This Means War,Eye To Eye,The Only Good Thing,Love Hurts and maybe Long Live The Night from the Days Of Thunder soundtrack from 1990.Hopefully someday she will release a box set with all her music from soundtracks and hard to find songs.This latest collection is still great to crank up and enjoy the best female rocker of our time.3 out of 4 stars***
