Great White in my mind is one of the greatest bands ever to play hard rock/heavy blues music. They are right there with the likes of Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. Thier music, while not the most groundbreaking, was pure and filled with emotion. Anyone of the tracks on this greatest hits collection is a song that fits a mood. Once Bitten, Twice Shy puts you in that feel good mood. Songs like House of Broken Love and Mista Bone are perfect for that early morning drive through south eastern California and by the time you got into las Vegas there was songs like Rock Me and Lady Red Light. Great music for all good times
I just love this band and it really upsets me that when most people hear the name Great White, they will think of the Tragedy that killed 100. I try to forget that sad day, but for the band, that is not an option. The fact of the matter is that they should have been rock icons by 2003 and not playing death traps like that place in Rhode Island. Now, I see that people are making jokes about that day. Do people have any care for anyone?
That is not the point. This is one of the greatest bands in the last 25 years and this CD is good for starters that would like to hear something that is greatly under-rated
