Not Entirely Complete, But Outstanding Nevertheless,
This review is from: The Singles + (Audio CD)
Kudos to B.R. Music for their superior Singles + collections. They do a masterful job of collecting virtually all of the singles by various artists, and placing them in one all-encompassing collection. To add to the beauty of their sets, the songs all sound terrific as well.
The Four Tops Singles + collects nearly all of their charting singles through 1982, and presents them in chronological order over 2 discs. Of the 44 Songs that reached Billboard's Hot 100 from 1964-1983, only seven are omitted. These are: "Ain't That Love", "River Deep-Mountain High", "You Gotta Have Love In Your Heart", "Are You Man Enough", "Catfish", "Sad Hearts", and "I Just Can't Walk Away". Of these songs, only "Are You Man Enough" and "River Deep-Mountain High" cracked the Top 40, and their inclusion is missed. One further note: MacArthur Park is presented in it's single "Part 2" version, not it's full-length version.
Every other single is here. For fans looking for songs besides just the hits, you'll have to look into other collections. But for listeners who want the biggest (and not so big) hit singles, this set is hard to beat.
