This incredible boxed set comprises 15 CD's from the legendary P&P Records and its associated labels. Featuring 185 songs from 22 different record labels, it has a total playing time of over 18½ hours. It is the first time ever that the complete P&P output has been assembled in one collection and it is a testament to the talents of Peter Brown, Patrick Adams and Patricia Gilyard that this music is in as much demand today as it was when these titles were originally released as 12" singles.
Although it's missing a few important (not to mention big) hits, Greatest Hits, Vols. 1 & 2 is an excellent retrospective of the first half of Billy Joel's career. Beginning with "Piano Man," the first disc runs through a number of early songs before arriving at the hit-making days of the late '70s; some of these songs, including "Captain Jack" and "New York State of Mind," weren't strictly hits, but were popular numbers within his stage show and became radio hits. Once the songs from The Stranger arrive halfway through the first disc, there's no stopping the hits (although "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant," an album track from The Stranger, manages its way onto the collection).

Originally a hard-driving rocker in the vein of fellow Michigan garage rockers the Rationals and Mitch Ryder, Bob Seger developed into one of the most popular heartland rockers over the course of the '70s. Combining the driving charge of Ryder's Detroit Wheels with Stonesy garage rock and devotion to hard-edged soul and R&B, he crafted a distinctively American sound. While he never attained the critical respect of his contemporary Bruce Springsteen, Seger did develop a dedicated following through constant touring with his Silver Bullet Band. Following several years of missed chances and lost opportunities, Seger finally achieved a national audience in 1976 with the back-to-back release of Live Bullet and Night Moves. After the platinum success of those albums, Seger retained his popularity for the next two decades, releasing seven Top Ten, platinum-selling albums in a row.

Al Green's Greatest Hits is a 1975 greatest hits hits release by soul singer Al Green. In 2003, the album was ranked number 52 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The release has consistently ranked as one of the best executed 'greatest hits' albums in history. The original 1975 10 track LP edition included "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" which was never released as a single. That track was replaced by "Love and Happiness" when, in 1977, that track was released as a single in the US, a full 5 years after it was originally released on the 1972 LP "I'm Still In Love With You")
