With most greatest hits albums, there are one or two songs that seem unjustly omitted. With this one, you're left to wonder, "Is this all they could come up with?" Maybe the title should have been "The Biggest Radio Hits of Rod Stewart". Speaking only for myself, "Infatuation", which was a big hit, is missed. This could have easily become a 2-disc set and still have been honesty called "The Very Best of..."
As for the album it is, it's a wonderful listen. Every song is good, and there are absolutely no surprises (not that that is necessarily good, but expected for a single CD that doesn't try to be anything more than a best-of). A couple of them have become boring thanks to radio overkill.
Disc Two - "A Night In" - focuses on Rod the balladeer with his haunting versions of other peoples' songs: "Sailing" (Gavin Sutherland), "Have I Told You Lately" (Van Morrison), "I Don't Want To Talk About It" (Danny Whitten - Crazy Horse); plus his own compositions such as "The Killing of Georgie Pts 1 & 2" and "You're In my Heart (The Final Acclaim)". Best of all is the hard-to-get Python Lee Jackson classic "In a Broken Dream".
Well worth the money.
