For many mainstream listeners, Toby Keith first appeared on their radar in 2002 with "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)," the blistering counterpoint to Alan Jackson's sorrowful "Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning" that turned Keith into a talk radio phenomenon and a genuine American star. Like many overnight success stories, Toby Keith's celebrity didn't happen overnight – it was the beginning of his second act, as the 2008 double-disc compilation 35 Biggest Hits makes plain….
This is an "authorized" greatest hits collection in the sense that the band picked the selections themselves. It's preferable to the 1991 Greatest Hits comp for its slightly greater length (16 songs) and better choice of material; the single version of "Southern Girls" makes it on this time around, for instance.
Skynyrd's Innyrds: Their Greatest Hits comes close to being a solid single-disc overview of the Southern rockers' biggest hits, but it falls short in a number of important ways. Most notably, "Free Bird" is not in either its studio or live incarnations; it's presented as an outtake, something that will only be of interest to hardcore Lynyrd Skynyrd fans, just like the outtake of "Double Trouble."
DJ Bobo is the musical alias of Swiss Euro-dance singer and DJ Peter Rene Cipiriano Baumann. He had his first dance hit in 1992 with "Somebody Dance with Me," and since then, he's released a bunch of records and singles, most of which more successful in Switzerland and Germany. 2006's Greatest Hits was his second collection of singles. It features "The Secrets of Love," a duo with European '80s pop diva Sandra, and was certified gold in Switzerland.
