Have never been a big fan of most generic "greatest hits" records but there are definitely some compilations that stand out.
- Tom Petty, As mentioned above several times but I would specify the "American Treasure" discs. Outstanding collection, excellent fidelity and clearly put together with a lot of thought and love.
- Beatles Red (62-66) or Beatles 1.
- Dire Straits, Sultans of Swing, The Very Best Of Dire Straits - great collection, excellent (HDCD) fidelity.
Los Lobos El Cancionero: Mas y Mas
Ry Cooder. The UFO Has Landed
Merle Haggard: Down Every Road
Willie Nelson: One Hell Of A Ride
Eagles Greatest Hits is the best one because it's truly their greatest hits and you don't need another Eagles album to get the best...
Jackson 5 Greatest Hits for nostalgic reasons. Like Eagles... all you need from that group!
In addition to Decade, I'd add Dylan's Greatest Hit's Vol. 2, the Stones More Hot Rocks if for nothing else We Love You and the non US released r&b cuts. The 6 lp MCA box The Complete Buddy Holly, and finally the Eagles greatest hits makes for good target practice.
Beatles Red - and the Blue one too.
Eagles Greatest Hits
Jimi Hendrix Smash Hits
Ted Nugent Double Live Gonzo
Pat Travers Go For What You Know(Live)
Bad Company 10 from 6
BYRDS VOL.1 mono
Ramonesmania is absolutely classic and my first introduction to what would quickly become my favorite band.
Also, some bands are better for their singles vs. the whole albums. In that category I place:
Stone Temple Pilots “Thank You”
Duran Duran “Greatest”
The Jesus and Mary Chain “21 Singles”
The Kinks Kronikles is a good compilation. Not really a greatest hits per se though.
Has to be the Beatles. What do you think Alan?
I agree with many of those already posted and would emphatically add Spirit and Dylan
