Overview

How appropriate for a greatest-hits album to begin with a song that was such a huge hit that it made the band a household name. In this case, "Goodbye Says It All," Blackhawk's very first release, lands at the top spot. This Greatest Hits album plays like a career retrospective and tribute to co-founder, collaborator, and friend, Van Stephenson who not only fought but won a battle against melanoma and decided to leave the road in favor of spending time with his family. Fans will go nuts for all the oldies but goodies on this fine compilation: "I'm Not Strong Enough to Say No," "Every Once in a While," "Almost a Memory Now," and eight memorable others. Greatest Hits introduces three new songs, including the very last song on the album, "Ships of Heaven," written by Stephenson while he was facing his continually declining health. Those songs represent more than just new music; they represent the future of Blackhawk without Stephenson. And the future looks pretty bright.
