First released in 1981 on Queen's original U.S. label, Elektra, GREATEST HITS' track listing differed from the European release, which contained double the amount of tracks. When Hollywood Records purchased the entire Queen back catalogue in the early '90s, GREATEST HITS was finally issued on CD after being out of print for many years, and included the extra tracks only previously available on the European version. The only defect of the Hollywood Records version is that it omits two of Queen's most famous songs, "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Under Pressure," since both had been recently included as part of the CLASSIC QUEEN compilation.
Highlights? There are nothing but highlights here. Name any hit by the band and chances are it can be found here. Mixing favorites from the early years ("Killer Queen," "You're My Best Friend," "Seven Seas Of Rhye"), the latter years ("Radio GaGa," "I Want To Break Free") and everything in between ("Fat Bottomed Girls," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions"), GREATEST HITS is flawless from beginning to end. Simply one of the strongest and most popular greatest hits collections of any rock band, ever.
