Synopsis

Album Description
"America's best band is...Canadian." - Rolling Stone * 14 essential tracks * 2 previously unreleased tracks Blue Rodeo are one of Canada's greatest bands, having sold almost four million albums worldwide. Greatest Hits collects 14 essential tracks on one exceptional CD, pulled from their catalog of nine albums. Featured are the poignant ballad "Try," the guitar-powered "Side of the Road" (from the group's psychedelic masterpiece Nowhere to Here), and their recent hit "Bulletproof." Two previously unreleased recordings - their unique take on the Bee Gee's classic "To Love Somebody" (complete with fiddles and pedal steel) and a live version of "After The Rain" - make this, their first ever compilation, even more special.

CD Reviews

Greatest Hits America
Brian Kious | Saint Charles, Missouri United States | 04/29/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Well, what can I say... I can't say that I've ever heard Blue Rodeo on American radio, but then again I just got into indie radio a short time ago. In any case, I've been a Blue Rodeo fan since "Tremolo" and built my collection around that one and I was taken aback that there were no songs from "Tremolo". Two of Blue Rodeo's best works are not represented here: "Tremolo" and "The Days In Between".Personal critiques aside, I suppose this is a good springboard for newcomers to the band as they will pretty well get a solid helping of some of the best songs that Keelor and Cuddy had to offer from 1987-2002. I will say though, that the album does drag as the last five songs are slower in pace, but still enjoyable (I exclude "Bulletproof". I never liked this one. I think "Comet" should have been the first single from "Palace of Gold").You be the judge! Enjoy!"

"Listening to this album brought me back to my highschool days in Ontario and days with my friends who listened to Blue Rodeo. The choice of songs is great, although a few more ballads would have made the whole album all the better and more complete. This is a great album from a very unique band!"
Only a couple missing...
