Title - 'Now That's What I Call Classic Rock Hits' (EMI)
Artist - Various
Featuring a plethora of classic rock tracks that ALL classic rock fans will already know and love (and most probably own) over the years, this great one-stop-shop collection kicks off in fine style with Irish band Thin Lizzy and their massive hit 'The Boys Are Back In Town.' Then comes the late '70s early hit 'Feels Like The First Time' from Foreigner, before 'Hold The Line' (Toto), 'Baby Hold On' (Eddie Money), and the sing-along of 'Anyway You Want It' from Journey.
An edited version of 'Come Sail Away' from progressive rock group Styx is next, with the always-notable long bluesy piano break incorporated within Jethro Tull's 'Locomotive Breath' following. 'Crazy On You' from Heart, 'Feel Like Makin' Love' from Bad Company, the great-to-always-hear 'Lola' from Ray Davies and The Kinks (which details a romantic encounter between a young man and a transvestite!), and an edited version of '25 Or 6 To 4' from rock/jazz fusion band Chicago both thereafter.
The wonderfully smooth 'Take The Money And Run' from the Steve Miller Band is followed by an edited version of 'Blinded By The Light' from Manfred Mann's Earth Band. A cover of Bruce Springsteen's own song, even today you'd hardly recognize Springsteen's version. 'Paradise By The Dashboard Light,' Meat Loaf's epic 3-part baseball/dating scenario song (written by Jim Steinman and featuring Ellen Foley) is next, with a live version of 'I Want You To Want Me' from Cheap Trick, a live version of 'Do You Feel Like We Do' from Peter Frampton (which appears on the album Frampton Comes Alive), and the monster 'Free Bird' from the American southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd rounding off the collective classic rock hits album in grand style.
