Richard Marx's Greatest Hits performs a valuable service for his fans, collecting all of his hit singles – "Don't Mean Nothing," "Should've Known Better," "Endless Summer Nights," "Hold on to the Nights," "Satisfied," "Right Here Waiting," "Angela," "Children of the Night," "Keep Coming Back," "Hazard," "Take This Heart," "Now and Forever" – on one disc. For both the casual and the longtime fan, this is a blessing, since Marx's albums were usually uneven, featuring a few strong cuts surrounded by filler. Greatest Hits cuts away the chaff, leaving behind on the best cuts, resulting in an ideal career summary of this popular MOR pop/rocker.
Cliff Richard scored his first Dutch hit in 1959, when "Living Doll," his sixth U.K. hit (and first number one) conquered the Netherlands as effortlessly as it swept across the rest of Europe. And, no less than in any other country on the continent, it set the stage for a career that would still be going strong half a century later. This collection of Richard's biggest Dutch hit singles is, of course, no different than any other gathering of his biggest successes.
Vivaldi’s sonatas for violin and continuo follow his volume of trio sonatas, which, like these, paid homage to the acknowledged master of the form, Arcangelo Corelli, but staked out new, personal territory.
