His second "best of" package - this one covers sixteen more years of material, another disc, and has a whopping 37 songs. There's a few new songs here that really aren't anything special, and he wasn't putting out as many hits as he once did (which is why many of these titles won't be familiar to a casual listener), but overall it does exactly what it's supposed to do and his successes are all well documented here.
