Other problems with this collection is that tracks aren't presented chronologically. The songs just don't flow properly, and this makes for a set of songs that aren't exactly cohesive. This could've been a cool 2 CD ANTHOLOGY, featuring full length versions (and a few 12" versions!) of classic songs, including tracks from the post-Mary Davis edition of the group (they did have about 3-4 hits on the radio during the mid 1980's).
The liner notes by A.Scott GAlloway are above average & should be informative for new S.O.S. fans, BUT the artwork could be better, which is how I view the entire CD. Since the record companies refuse to do the right thing, I created my own 2 CD set including full length versions of the hits, a few remixes, and even Mary Davis' only solo hit ('Don't Wear It Out'), was added as a bonus track! Fans of The S.O.S.Band are urged to make their own CD compilations. Enough of these half-baked CDs by the record companies!
Good attempt, but fans should only get this 'The Greatest Hits' for the rare songs from 1982 that I mentioned, and like me, you can create a BETTER tribute to Atlanta's own 'S.O.S. Band'!
1. Just be good to me
2. Take your time
3. Tell me if you still care

It's simply criminal to rip us off like that. Simply criminal. I pad $15/US for the collection. My ratings: Four stars!!
