This is an "authorized" greatest hits collection in the sense that the band picked the selections themselves. It's preferable to the 1991 Greatest Hits comp for its slightly greater length (16 songs) and better choice of material; the single version of "Southern Girls" makes it on this time around, for instance.
Skynyrd's Innyrds: Their Greatest Hits comes close to being a solid single-disc overview of the Southern rockers' biggest hits, but it falls short in a number of important ways. Most notably, "Free Bird" is not in either its studio or live incarnations; it's presented as an outtake, something that will only be of interest to hardcore Lynyrd Skynyrd fans, just like the outtake of "Double Trouble."
DJ Bobo is the musical alias of Swiss Euro-dance singer and DJ Peter Rene Cipiriano Baumann. He had his first dance hit in 1992 with "Somebody Dance with Me," and since then, he's released a bunch of records and singles, most of which more successful in Switzerland and Germany. 2006's Greatest Hits was his second collection of singles. It features "The Secrets of Love," a duo with European '80s pop diva Sandra, and was certified gold in Switzerland.
The Monkees were a pop rock group. Assembled in Los Angeles in 1966 by Robert "Bob" Rafelson and Bert Schneider for the American television series The Monkees, which aired from 1966 to 1968, the musical acting quartet was composed of Americans Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork, and Englishman Davy Jones. All music was supervised by producer Don Kirshner. At the time of the group's formation, its producers saw The Monkees as a Beatles-like band. At the start, the band members provided vocals, and were given some performing and production opportunities, but they eventually fought for and earned the right to collectively supervise all musical output under the band's name. The group undertook several concert tours, allowing an opportunity to perform as a live band as well as on the TV series.
Small Faces were an English rock and roll band from East London, heavily influenced by American rhythm and blues. The group was founded in 1965 by members Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston, although by 1966 Winston was replaced by Ian McLagan as the band's keyboardist. The band is remembered as one of the most acclaimed and influential mod groups of the 1960s, With memorable hit songs such as "Itchycoo Park", "Lazy Sunday", "All or Nothing", "Tin Soldier", and their concept album Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake, they later evolved into one of the UK's most successful psychedelic acts before disbanding in 1969. After the Small Faces disbanded, three of the members were joined by Ronnie Wood as guitarist, and Rod Stewart as their lead vocalist, both from The Jeff Beck Group, and the new line-up was renamed the Faces.
2000 outing from Wayne Hussey & co., one of the biggest goth bands ever. Contains updated re-recordings of 18 of their biggest & best in the '80s & '90s, including 'Deliverance', 'Wasteland', 'Severina', 'The Crystal Ocean', 'Butterfly On A Wheel' and 'Love Me To Death'. "Resurrection" contains new tracks along with a new mix of the old 'classics', but much to my surprise, all of the tracks had been re-recorded. I listened through it and found some very enjoyable new interpretations, Like a Child Again & Butterfly on a Wheel stood out, but I would categorize most as just an interesting experiment by Wayne Hussey (the singer and songwriter).
