2009 UK compilation from the late great American singer/songwriter. Harry Nilsson's career began on a high in the '60s, when critics (and even The Beatles) took notice of his amazing vocal and composing talents. Having written hits for Three Dog Night, The Monkees and others, Nilsson finally had a few hits of his own, ironically enough, with other peoples' songs ('Everybody's Talkin'' was written by Fred Neil and 'Without You' was penned by Badfinger's Pete Ham and Tommy Evans). This compilation gathers 18 of Nilsson's best including the aforementioned hits plus 'One', 'Without Her', 'Remember (Christmas)', 'Joy' and more.

She's blonde…she's beautiful…she's Deborah Harry! Best known as the vocalist and focal point for the NY New Wave/Punk band Blondie, Deborah continued to record memorable albums under her own name after her band imploded in the early '80s. This collection features the cream of the solo years and includes great tracks like 'I Want That Man', 'The Jam Was Moving', 'Rush Rush', 'French Kissin' In The USA' and her collaborative contribution with Iggy Pop to 1990's Red, Hot & Blue AIDS charity album, 'Well… Did You Evah!'. 18 tracks including a few bonus remixes of 'I Want That Man'.
Featuring 12 tracks, which chart the development of the band from the early grindcore recordings through to the more melodical death metal approach of the later albums, including classics such as 'Heartwork', 'Corporal Jigsore Quandary' and 'No Love Lost'. Liverpool's legendary Death Metal pioneers Carcass are often credited with shaping the entire death metal genre. Pushing boundaries with their shocking imagery whilst evolving and innovating with each new album.
The Best of Nat King Cole is part of EMI-Capitol Special Markets' Ten Best Series, where they selected ten hits from a popular artist on their roster. For the budget-minded, it's a nice collection of Nat King Cole's best-known hits, like "Unforgettable," "Ramblin' Rose," "Mona Lisa," "Walkin' My Baby Back Home" and "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons." It certainly won't please either jazz purists or Cole collectors, but the budget-conscious looking for an affordable (albeit skimpy) sampler of well-known Cole should turn here.
