Greatest Hits, Vo1. 1

****

Phil's first best-of is an example of how a compilation like this can actually redefine the artist whose work is being collected. In addition to the bracing radio favorites Phil has made under his own name, Greatest Hits adds five re-recordings of hits he's written for others. That allows fans to place those songs into context in Phil's body of work—not to mention the fact that it's just fun to hear him sing 'em. Throw in three all-new tracks, and you've got a textbook example of how to do a greatest-hits album right.
