CD Reviews

"Although I own this CD, every time I listen to it, I am dissatisfied. Firstly, the sound is muddy for it was created in the early days of CD trans- fer; so the company that owns A&M's masters should consider a remaster and repackage of this material. They may have this on the drawing board (I sincerely hope so!). As for the music itself, most of his major hits are represented on this package, except the notable omissions of "You're So Unique" (1973), "(Theme From) Slaughter" (1972), a personal favorite "Wide Stride" (1978), album cut "There's a Train A Comin'..." (1973) culled from "Everybody Likes Some Kind Of Music" LP, and his last big hit, 1979's mega-hit duet with Syreeta Wright on the Motown label "With You I'm Born Again", taken from the movie which I've forgotten but starred the man who played "Kotter" on television... All in all, with the 20-24 bit remastering and re- packaging of this material, it could become a best seller all over again. Billy's music deserves the respect it earned."

"This album is a very good compilation of Billy's hit singles. Although many of the songs are arranged differently from their popular versions (e.g., Get Back and You Are So Beautiful), it is still musically interesting and fun. If you enjoy 70's keyboards and upbeat songs, then this album is for you."
