Eight years before the American side got their act together on The Best Of, the U.K. contingent of Columbia/Sony released this single-CD compilation of greatest hits. Of course, it's not totally definitive: "Kathy's Song" and "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her" are live versions from The Concert in Central Park. It does not have "Fakin' It" but does have "Seven O'Clock News/Silent Night." Still turning up in some discount bins, it's worth picking up. [In 2003 a greatly expanded two-disc version was released by Columbia.] ~ Ted Mills
