I love listening to Sammy Hagar. This CD is great since it has some of Sammy Hagar’s best songs all in one for me to hear. I don’t have to have all his CD’s out to hear the songs I want to hear. It is worth the purchase.
If she had made her mark only through the garish video to ”Love Is a Battlefield,” Pat Benatar would still stand as a ’80s icon. Ah, but there were so many more ’80s pop rock, just-this-side-of-new-wave hits to her name, including radio staples such as ”You Better Run,” ”Hit Me with Your Best Shot,” and ”Heartbreaker,” all of which are included in this short, sharp retrospective. Benatar and her husband and bandleader, Neil Geraldo, specialized in romantic anthems that are as hooky as they are bombastic. Eschewing the playfulness of contemporary female rivals such as Debbie Harry and the Go-Go’s (and staking out the middle ground between them and Heart), Benatar ultimately surpassed the new wavers by staying in character: this was a tough chick who didn’t take any guff. Period! As she lost interest in that role, her popularity flagged, but that’s another album. These are just the hits. –W.C. Sweeney

This is a compilation of songs of the early sammy solo years, the real “red rocker” years. Included in this collection is his song “I’ve done everything for you”, which rick springfield re-did on his album in 1981 and made a hit of…It’s still sammy’s song. I was not as familiar with his work from this time era since I grew to know him during his 80’s run and with Van Halen, but this is a great album to have to complete his time post Montrose to pre-warner brothers days (albums like 3 lock box, Standing hampton, VOA Etc). Check it out, affordable, great for the sammy collection. Get this with Unboxed and the red collection, a 3 disc collection that almost completes sammy…pick up montrose’s greatest hits, you have it covered.
Got this for the wife and she just loves it. Great sound worth every penny!!
This CD has all Sammy Hagars greatest songs in his career, as a slolo singer/musican. Thanks
Made in USA in 1999, Serial# 72435-21097-2-2, Playing Time 38:37This CD is a compilation of material of his early solo years, up to the “Street Machine” album, plus track 3 from a single first issued on album on “Rematch”, plus track 8 from the 1992 14-track compilation “The Best Of”.This disc is like a re-issue of that 1992 album, but is missing 4 tracks, while track 1, “Red”, is actually from his early self-titled album (and not “live” as stated on the CD, and not remixed as it appears under the other compilation).Nothing from “Danger Zone”, his last album for Capitol records, and nothing from his 1st solo effort, “Nine On A Ten Scale”.Overall, a fair compilation of his early solo work; track 8, a re-make of the oldie “Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay”, which I dislike, seems completely out of place after the smokin’ song “Trans Am”.I honestly don’t recommend this to anyone because it’s a little short: go for the alternative 14-track version of “The Best Of” instead, and/or the “Unboxed” CD, which covers the Geffen years
