Why is this going for up to $100 on here? I picked mine up new at B & N for under $25. It sounds great; but even after cleaning there is a little surface noise more obvious on some quieter tracks. "Wicked Game" "Blue Spanish Sky" and "Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing" sound so damn good though, I cant complain too much. It's like butter! Ha!

Relies too much on the later stuff. Only 3 tracks from the first two albums. While it sounds OK you can tell it was mastered during the loudness wars.

Not hearing the same issues with sound quality. Maybe I just got a good copy? Cleaned it with Groove Washer before playing which I do for all new vinyl. It is dead quiet and a really good pressing. Vinyl is heavy and flat. Loving the bass in this pressing as well. I'm thrilled with this copy.
Not sure why the prices are so high. Bought my copy new for $24 and still see copies available from retail stores. Why are people paying so much to get it?

After a thorough clean in the Spin Clean, there were still an abundance of Pops and Clicks as noted in previous review. Still sounds good overall, some section of the vinyl were very quiet, and I would recommend.

Good edition on vinyl, with great sound, but with notorious pops and clicks on some songs. I recommend cleaning the discs before listening.

While there’s certainly something thematic about songs that have been delivered as part of individual albums, when it comes to Chris Isaak, the man stands in two worlds. There is no denying the haunting brilliance of his his intoxicatingly dark introspective songs, songs that are so cinematic that it’s impossible not weave in your own little stories to accompany them as they play out … songs such as “Wicked Game” and “Please.” Of course that music stands in stark opposition to his upbeat, put a smile on your face and dance you around the block numbers such as “San Francisco Days” and “Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing.” Regardless, eighteen of his most well known songs from across his collection have been gathered together giving you a really solid collection.

With that in mind, I’ve always wondered who puts these compilations together, where I’ve always felt that I could have done a far better job, as songs like “5:15,” “Super Magic 2000” and “Beautiful Homes,” along with six others that I would certainly suggest are far more important and far better than those that have found their way to this collection, are conspicuously absent.

Yet there’s one thing that does make this collection super fine, and that’s the inclusion of a DVD for eighteen of Chris’ music videos. Yet even there, several of the songs featured on the DVD are missing on the CD side of the package, while two videos for “Wicked Game” have been included, leaving me to rub the back of my head wondering why they didn’t call me to help set up this great package in order to make it even better.

What you get is a double gatefold digipak with a pocket in the center that houses the booklet. Yes, it’s all fun, with the inclusion of the DVD being the best part of the collection. I of course have combed through all of his albums, where as usual, have selected those that ride best in my back pocket, a collection of eighteen songs that never fail to please.
