"The Commodores' songs don't get played much today on UK radio. Even easy-listening stations play 'Easy' and 'Three Times a Lady' only rarely. But why? As this remastered collection makes clear, the Commodores wrote many fantastic songs.In the UK, the Commodores were one of those bands you knew nothing about. Their outstanding song catalogue was all you needed to know. And then Lionel Richie left to go solo. So we now knew one fact about the Commodores -- they were the band that Richie used to be in. Sadly, once Richie had left, the band lost much of their momentum.Apart from the exclusion of 'Heroes', this CD contains all my Commodores' favourites:- 'Easy', the track which will always remind me of my first minibus vacation across the USA in 1977. - 'Still', which to my ears is essentially 'Three Times a Lady' re-worked and improved.- 'Lady', on which the Commodores take on the disco influences of Earth, Wind & Fire and Kool and the Gang.- 'Flying High', 'Just to be Close to You' and my all-time favourite, 'Zoom', which simply soars.The sticker on my copy of this CD says "20 Original Recordings featuring LIONEL RICHIE". This is not strictly true, as Richie had left by the time four of the 20 tracks were recorded. But who cares? There are so many glorious songs here that I just can't be persuaded to take this disc out of the my car CD player."
A well-compiled collection of the Commodores biggest hits...

"This is the very best single-disc Commodores collection on the market today. It has every one of their Top 40 hits except "Slippery When Wet" in high-quality remastered sound. With 20 tracks and over 75 minutes of music, it simply can't be beat. The Commodores produced an amazing body of work in their heyday in the late '70s and early '80s. Listening to this CD just drives home how great they really were. If you're looking for a good summary of their best stuff, this is definitely the CD to get. If you want a little something more, you might want to seek out either the 1995 or 2001 2-disc "Anthology" sets as an alternative."
