It's Still Essential
By a song 4u
True, this cd contains songs not really considered essential but it does contain Barry classics none the less. Ian Hunter's "Ships" from "One Voice," "Let's Hang On" from the then out-of-print "If I Should Love Again," "Ready To Take A Chance Again" from the film soundtrack "Foul Play," "Read 'em And Weep" from Barry's original Greatest Hits II lp, "Somewhere Down The Road" again from "If I Should Love Again," the title track to "One Voice" which I failed to mention was also out-of-print by the time of this hits configuration, "The Old Songs" from "If I Should Love Again," "I Made It Through The Rain" From 1980's "Barry," again out-of-print and remains so to this day, "Dirt Cheap" was previously unreleased and hails from "Swing Street" sessions, and "Memory" from the Broadway play "Cats" culled From Barry's "Here Comes The Night" also still out-of-print. So, not only did this three disc set serve to make available Barry's essential hits, it kept key album tracks from out-of-print albums from disappearing into oblivion.
