Diana Ross, the lead singer for Motown's The Supremes during the 1960s, left the group in 1970 to embark on what would turn out to be a highly successful solo career. She was named the 'Female Entertainer of the Century' in 1976 by Billboard magazine. In 1993, the Guinness Book of World Records declared her to be the most successful female music artist in history due to her U.S. and U.K. success with more hits than any other female artist in the charts. All The Great Hits is a compilation album by Diana Ross originally released in 1981. The album features her duet Endless Love with Lionel Richie which was from a movie with Brooke Shields. This recording has been mastered by the K2 HD format of 24-bit 100kHz, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats.
Since Marc Bolan's own label issued its first greatest-hits package back in 1973, there has been no shortage of collections rounding up the peerless sequence of 18 singles (some with multiple B-sides) released between January 1972 and Bolan's death in September 1977. Indeed, this set was itself just a few months old when its contents were redistributed across two box sets' worth of CD singles, each one replicating the original U.K. 45. As a simple one-stop chronological gathering of the Bolan jukebox at its born-to-boogie best, however, this two-disc package is hard to beat. In common with the two single-disc collections that it supersedes, the discs are divided neatly between A-sides (disc one) and B-sides…

Fit to Be Tied is a compilation CD released by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. The collection was released in the United States in 1997. Rather than secure the rights to the original versions of "I Hate Myself for Loving You" and "Little Liar" from CBS, Jett's label included a demo version and live recording of those songs, respectively…
T. Rex were an English rock band, formed in 1967 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Marc Bolan. The band formed as Tyrannosaurus Rex, releasing four underground acoustic albums under the name. Tony Visconti (their producer for several albums) claimed in a documentary on the band that he had taken to using the abbreviated term "T. Rex" as a shorthand, something that initially irritated Bolan, who gradually came around to the idea and officially shortened the band's name to "T. Rex" at roughly the same time they started having big hits. In the early to mid 1970s, the band reached huge success. During this period the band also released six UK top-30 albums. In 1977, Bolan was killed in a car accident, and the band disbanded. "Great Hits" is a compilation album, initially released in 1972 on EMI label.
STREET LIFE is a collection that, with barely a misstep, arranges the career of Bryan Ferry into a brilliant, nearly chronological 20-track retrospective, with material from both Roxy Music and his concurrent solo career. The first ten tracks, from pre-1979, show Ferry and the band in their loose, glam rock mode, freely toying with other musical styles as the mood takes them. It includes classics like "Virginia Plain," "Pyjamarama," and "Do the Strand," along with a funny, and slightly surreal, take on Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" and Ferry's smooth interpretation of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" (from his ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE solo album).
The Yardbirds are an English rock band that had a string of hits in the mid-1960s, including "For Your Love", "Over Under Sideways Down" and "Heart Full of Soul". The group is notable for having started the careers of three of rock's most famous guitarists: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, all of whom were in the top five of Rolling Stone's 100 Top Guitarists list (Clapton at No. 2, Page at No. 3 and Beck at No. 5).
