Overview

There have been many Huey Lewis & the News hits compilations released overseas, but 2006's simply named Greatest Hits is only the second U.S. comp, following Time Flies, which appeared a decade earlier. At a generous 21 tracks, Greatest Hits is not only five songs longer than Time Flies, but it's a better-chosen collection, too. It may be missing "Bad Is Bad," but it has a stronger selection of early songs, like the wonderful "Hope You Love Me Like You Say You Do," plus a better selection of latter-day songs, including Huey's duet with Gwyneth Paltrow on Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'." That doesn't mean the disc is perfect, however; although this does have stronger representation of their earlier material, it could use just a little bit more, and the non-chronological sequencing is a bit of a headache. That said, this has all the hits and no weak songs, making it the best Huey Lewis & the News compilation yet.

You need to read a review before buying a Huey Lewis Greatest Hits album? Just buy it bro. Huey is a God in the Yacht Rock genre and we are all his "cruisin" minions. Just pop this CD in your Yacht's sound system and forget that your're "workin for a livin." The bonus DVD is something out of this "smallworld." I like to pop it into my home theater and watch the Huey classic videos like I was "back in time" Talk about a bargin, this dynamic duo could have easily cost upwards of 150 dollars in a "Perfect World". Long Live Huey
