A two disc set that is basically another "best of" package. I prefer the package that includes the original greatest hits 1,2, and 3. Of course, that was a four disc set, so this one is probably a bit cheaper. Like the aforementioned release, this one has some curious additions, and some curious omissions, but the whole package is quite nice and is par for the course for these kinds of releases. I think he should have skipped his "classical" period on this record, however. But that could be just me.
