Another Dated Collection - but did well for its time

"This is a very dated collection of greatest hits. It was released back in 1983. At the time, it probably was a very good greatest hits collection. It contains 9 songs that do capture the best of what Air Supply offered during this period. Since then, there is a more complete collection called "Ultimate Air Supply" that will give you every song offered on this CD - and more (including post 1983 material). I bought `Greatest Hits' as a way to start my Air Supply collection about 20 years ago.The Liner Notes are thin. There isn't much insight you are going to get into the band from this particular CD. But the liner notes, do tell you who participated on what instruments and vocals on the songs, however they fail to tell you what album the songs are from. The songs really aren't sequenced in order of release (which I like to see on a Greatest Hits CD).For the most part, the portfolio of songs you expect would be on this CD. The only song that is missing from this period is "Two Less Lonely People in the World". Perhaps this is due to the fact that this was released at the beginning of the CD period and this was really more of an LP release, so there was limited space to include songs on LP. The song does include a new song called "Making Love Out of Nothing at All". This is a high point of the collection. Usually "new" songs on a Greatest Hits collection are average, but this one might be one the best songs that Air Supply ever released. Some interesting notes on this song is that Jim Steinman, the man behind Meat Loaf's `Bat Out of Hell' collection produced this song. The song almost has a Steinman theme to it with all of the keyboards. The song also has a Bruce Springsteen influence as E Street Band members Roy Brittan does Piano and Synthesizer and Max Weinberg does drums. Finally Rick Derringer does guitar work Who would have thought a Jim Steinman, Bruce Springsteen, and Rick Derringer influence on an Air Supply song???This song really marks the peak of Air Supply's creative and commercial success. After this, they never achieved the type of success that they had in the early 80s. Chances are, if you do get this CD - you probably are going to get it either used or at some sort of bargain sale. And if you can get a good price on it, go for it. Otherwise I'd recommend the 'Ultimate' collection is the way to go as the way to start up your Air Supply collection. Air Supply is a great group and the content is still there on the CD. My advice there are better places to start with Air Supply."
Exemplary display of love ballad prowess at it's finest!

"You have to respect the genius of a group that can, without having to resort to using thunderous guitars (Megadeth, Pantera)or earth shattering bass (almost all modern R&B groups)still somehow grab your very soul and take it for an emotional ride not letting go until the very last harmonic crescendo. "Air Supply: Greatest hits" sets out with a very defined mission. To allow the listener to experience the deepest levels of romantic expression in the most addictive way possible. And man does it ever deliver. From one tune to the next it is never difficult to open your heart and let it cry out in joy, remembrance, longing and even youthful arrogance. To let it join in the soaring melodies of pure unadulterated, and unashamed realities of the feelings that can grow from love. (Almost ninety percent of Air Supply's songs include "love" in the title). Never before has a group been able to succeed so completely in that very common of goals. Listen to it and find out how much feeling is waiting just around the next spin of the disk."
