Format: Audio CD
1987 was a good year for Rick Astley and producers Stock-Aitken-Waterman, who hit the jackpot with the international hit, "Never Gonna Give You Up." It turned Astley into an overnight star, thanks to the catchy single and his ultra-deep barritone. Platimum records ensued, and people were even so bold as to align him with other, more seasoned, r&b vocalists. The following year, he released his second album, and while it spawned a couple hits, it didn't sell as well as its predecessor. The next year, he severed ties from Stock-Aitken-Waterman, and tried to make it on his own before he faded out of public consciousness. The Rick Astley story is not uncommon, but, at long last, we finally have a hits collection that throws together his hits and some well-known tracks. While I'm happy to see that "Together Forever," "Never Gonna Give You Up," and "Take Me to Your Heart" are here, the big surprise is the appearance of the b-side "My Arms Keep Missing You." This song is dynamite and is one of Rick's very best songs. Not surprisingly, the strongest songs on this disc are the ones produced by SAW, although "Cry for Help" is a pleasant, if unspectacular, ballad. Regardless, this album comes recommended: it's a well-put together package featuring one of pop's brightest hopes of the late 1980s.

Rick Astley made his US debut with a little song by the name of "Never Gonna Give You Up" which not only became one of the best pop songs in 1988 but also arguably one of the best pop songs of all time. Combined with the production and writing skills of Stock/Aitken/Waterman, Rick came, Rick sang, Rick conquered the top of US charts with 2 consecutive hits ("Never Gonna Give You Up" and "Together Forever") and in the process became the first new male artist of the 80s to accomplish such an achievement. This compilation includes all the US singles including all the singles released only in the UK. It's nice that they have included the mixes of the songs rather than the album version which I'm sure most of the fans have already in their collection. The bonus track is of course the first track Rick made to be released on the RCA label "When You Gonna". An experimental track at best, it's a typical 80s production with Lisa Carter on the vocals. I had hoped that some of the B-sides would be included but I'm satisfied that BMG Heritage decided to do justice to Rick by releasing this collection. Nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy in 1988, it's sad that the music industry did not reward Rick for his vocals. So much soul coming from a white man, it's easy to assume Rick as a black gospel singer. The best tracks are Never Gonna Give You Up, Whenever You Need Somebody, My Arms Keep Missing You, Together Forever, It Would Take A Strong Strong Man, She Wants To Dance With Me, Take Me To Your Heart, Hold Me In Your Arms, Cry For Help & Hopelessly.

This is the first Rick Astley compilation in the US, and it covers all his chart hits in the US and UK from 1987-1993. Good, 2002 up-to-date liner notes with chart (US and UK) information, photos and solid sound. This is a perfect CD for Astley beginners and fans who want all the hits in one place.

Back in the late '80s, Rick Astley caught a lot of (undue) flack for his music, but everybody was secretly entranced by the infectiousness of his singles. His two biggest--"Never Gonna Give You Up" and "Together Forever"--are obviously included on this Greatest Hits collection, and that will keep the casual fan satisfied. However, Astley had a few more aces up his sleeve as a listen to this album proves: The groove-driven "When You Gonna" is worth checking out, as is the oddly catchy ode to broke-heartedness "Giving Up On Love". The album sleeve also contains a mini-bio and USA/UK chart positions for his songs; neither are all that essential, but they're both fun.
Grunge music effectively killed Astley's career, and as such he's usually nothing more than a footnote in musical history. But for a few years in the late '80s, back when pop music ruled the world, Rick Astley was a star, and this hits collection will show you why.

Rick Astley is one of those peculiar English artists who
found fame in the 1980's, mainly through the talents of
others. The girls loved that 'there' dance music. With his
baritone voice and good looks, how could he fail?

Stock Waterman & Aitken were the song writers behind the
the voice. Bit like Gorgio Moroder..and so forth. The 80's
were on fire with Boy George, Human League and all that
nutty nightclub scene. Rick was there with "Together forever"
and "Never gonna give you up". His five piece band rocked
on synths. and guitar - some production there my friends.

Rick still performs some place or another. Like South America
or Bulgaria. I guess he has toned down the tempo by now...
Times have changed. The 80's has a magical quality. Most of
the music was killer compared to anything since. Rick was
there... The boy from Lancashire, England did well for himself.
Play this CD, loud and dance around the house, but only if
you are fit enough to keep going! No hospital visits please.
UNLESS...Rick will pay the bill??

17 tracks of pure upbeat disoc type music, well produced with
quite a few "ballads" Worth every penny of your money!
