"This collection is very good and the two new songs from the Diamons are Forever cd are really good! Of course there are always some songs that didn't get on the cd but overall this collection spans all their albums. Excellent for any Legs Diamond fan. I highly recommend this one !"
FAVORITES SAYS IT ALL

"If you own no Legs Diamond at all this is the place to start! They hit every album, except for live albums and this set rocks from beginning to end. This CD took 28 years to come out and the wait was well worth it. Legs Diamond Cds come and go and the prices of the items flucuates wildly, so, this is usually affordable and a great place to build your collection from. Instead of telling you what I like, let me just mention the only song I can live without, which is Winds of Fortune. It's not bad, but it has just never struck a nerve with me. Because of a previous review I would also like to point out that Loneliness and This Time around are also on the Diamonds are Forever release, but these are not the same versions. On Favorites, all the songs are sung by Rick Sanford, vocalist extraordinaire, including the bonus tracks. Sanford was replaced after an extremely poor performance in San Antonio [he was sick and/or messed up] when the rest of the band was kicking butt. The band picked up John Levesque who played an amazing set with Montrose the same night and the result was Diamonds are Forever. So, there are 2 songs here that aren't featured on anything else, except different versions. That is a good reason to pick this up, although every song here is a contibuting factor to pick it up. Bluesy, hard rock, ballads, slow, Legs Diamond plays them all. They don't have the same old sound on every CD or song, so, grow progressively with some straight forward great rock and roll from a Hollywood, California band [We'd still like to think they're from Texas]. If you are not into Greatest hits then you may like to try Legs Diamond, Town Bad Girl, A Diamond Is A Hard Rock or Fire Power, or pick them up after you can't quit playing Favourites. Get them while they are available or spend your time dreaming about what you could have had. Highly recommended!!!"
