Which album should I get?
I generally avoid a greatest hits as my first purchase.
I prefer getting a bands definitive album. Of course some bands have NO definitive album or a Greatest Hits so good that that is what is needed. Like this?
hits compilations tend to be good for bands/singers who were famous at times before the album became more important than the single. then if you love everything on it, you can investigate further... sam cooke is another good example...or buddy holly. or little richard.
theres an album they did called 'save for a rainy day'...that only got a limited release at the time on their own label, and it really hard to get(unless you buy the cd)- supposed to be a sunshine pop gem- I'd check that out first.
Aside from that, I've always rather liked the look of Jan and Dean meet Batman...great sleeve
I'll look for this AND a hits compilation.
