The very personification of soft rock during the late '70s and '80s, Dan Fogelberg had a knack for melodic hooks and straight-to-the-heart lyrics that instantly captured a generation hungry for honest sentiment. This collection brings together most of his best FM classics, including "Part of the Plan" (with its luminous harmonies, courtesy of Graham Nash and Joe Walsh); the lushly orchestrated "Nether Lands"; the poignant "Heart Hotels," "Same Old Lang Syne," and "Lonely in Love" (which boasts a sax and guitar riff that sticks in your head like glue); the Eagles-style "Run for the Roses"; and, of course, "Longer," a Valentine's and anniversary favorite if ever there was one. Fogelberg's abilities as both a composer and performer shine through in this collection, from mellow ballads and mid-tempo love songs to such up-tempo material as "Missing You" and "She Don't Look Back." Fogelberg's clever blend of country, rock, jazz, and Latin elements make his songs even more memorable, and his yearning vocals render him the perfect interpreter of his own sturdily built material.
