"Update 11/11/13 – The DVD has been dropped from this deluxe edition – it is now only a single CD with the three bonus tracks.
The Killers celebrate ten years of music, with their first hits collection, appropriately titled Direct Hits. The 15-track selection includes the singles from the Las Vegas band’s four studio albums, Hot Fuss (2004), Sam’s Town (2006), Day & Age (2008) and Battle Born (2012), as well as including two new tracks Shot At The Night and Just Another Girl. A deluxe CD+DVD edition is also available which comes with three bonus tracks on the audio disc, one of which is the original demo of Mr Brightside. The DVD features a never-before-seen Killers documentary. In addition, Island Records are creating a Super Deluxe Edition which will be sold exclusively via their online store. This repeats the content of the standard CD+DVD deluxe edition, and adds a unique collection of 5 x 10? vinyl records featuring all the singles on the album. Direct Hits will be released on 11 November 2013.

This stunning 2 CD set features the 1975 Nucleus album Alleycat and the 1976 compilation Direct Hits. Alleycat sees the British fusion ensemble getting downright funky and rocking, keeping pace quite well with other popular groups of the time such as Miles Davis, Return to Forever, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, and the Tony Williams Lifetime. Ian Carr (trumpet/flugelhorn/synthesizer) and his band included on this album Bob Bertles on sax & flute, Ken Shaw on guitar, Geoff Castle on keyboards & Moog, Roger Sutton on bass, and Roger Sellers on drums-together they make a formidable line-up that delivers on all levels.
Rarely has a greatest-hits collection been as effective as Elton John's first compilation of Greatest Hits.
