This disc is horrible. Maybe I just came in with such high expectations. But, the record sounded great, the CD wonderful. This just lies there.

First off, this is a collection of great songs. Yes there are some favorites left out, but by and large, a wonderful representation of the band. If you love The Police, this will not disappoint.

Chick Corea

My "night job" is providing sound systems for musical events. Last Saturday I provided for Chick Corea and Béla Fleck. First time working with Chick Corea. What an amazing show it was. Sometimes working with an artist can change my perception of them, and this was the case here. I am now a even bigger fan than before. Not only musically, but Chick ... more
