I have a hard time thinking of a better greatest hits collection than Madonna's Immaculate Collection.

Thought about it, but...for me, her best work came in the 90s, after that comp. I'd probably take her later "Celebration" comp over it.

I love her 90s work too but Immaculate is just banger after banger and the fact that it's only a 7 year span of recording is insane.

The collection that probably had the biggest impact on me was probably Sly & the Family Stone's Anthology (not to be confused with their shorter Greatest Hits). toI used put that on every time we had people over in college and it never failed to make it a better time. Look at this thing:

1. Dance to the Music
2. M'Lady
3. Life
4. Fun
5. Sing a Simple Song
6. Everyday People
7. Stand!
8. I Want To Take You Higher
9. Don't Call Me N****, Whitey
10. You Can Make It If You Try
11. Hot Fun in the Summertime
12. Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)
13. Everybody is a Star
14. Family Affair
15. Runnin' Away
16. (You Caught Me) Smilin'
17. Thank You For Talkin' To Me Africa
18. Babies Makin' Babies
19. If You Want Me To Stay
20. Que Sera, Sera

And all that fit on one compact disc.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' greatest hits compilation was my real introduction to their work . I'd been familiar with and liked some of their big hits prior to that, but listening to that compilation was what made me finally go, "I gotta check out these guys further!"

The best greatest hits that come to my mind are Paul Kelly's Songs from the South, Crowded House's Recurring Dream and Pavement's Quarantine the Past.

Yes, and it's compact and moves fluidly, which makes it something you can actually listen to in one sitting. Unlike some of these 2 or 3 disc compilations that are hours long.

It’s a good collection but it’s mostly remixes. Give me the originals every day.

The Best of 1980-1990 is my favorite hits collection, but I would put Immaculate and the 1993 Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers right next to it.

Random Music Talk CXXIX: Gump attends a concert

So I’m attending my first concert post-pandemic and half an hour into Sleater-Kinney they asked us to shelter in place underneath the stands because a thunderstorm is coming. Lovely. COVID and social anxiety clearly weren’t enough.

So this is what happened:

Quote:
According to the NWS, nearly 4 inches of rain fell Saturday night in Central Park. With 1.94 inches between 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., it was the rainiest hour in 150+ years of recorded history. There have been several reports of multiple vehicles stranded in floods in parts of the city, northern New Jersey and on Long Island.

I have bought tickets to at least a dozen shows over the next six months, it's bound to happen to me as well at some point.

I have a few shows I want to see, but I missed out on presales and the secondary market is absolutely insane. Case in point: Dry Cleaning at the Empty Bottle, which is a small venue well-known for hosting up-and-coming indie bands. Original ticket price: $11. Cheapest re-sale price: $110.

What % of the US is vaccinated right now? Is that how you're measuring things? What's life like? The fact you can go to concerts makes me so jealous. My city of Melbourne just passed 200 days of strict, stage four lockdown

I’m really hoping my debut show happens. Turned a one-person album into a 5-piece live act, and we got a spot in a local music festival that’s being headlined by Built To Spill and Mt. Eerie. Also have tickets to a show that’s already been rescheduled that’s a reunion show from a band I considered my favorite around the turn of the millennium and they haven’t played these songs live in 18 years.

The short answer where I am (Chicago) is people are behaving as though Covid never happened. It was utter madness to allow Lollapalooza IMO - and not surprisingly a few weeks later we have rising cases and have entered a mask mandate again. Our public health agencies messed up royally in ever rescinding the mask recommendation in the first place. It was terribly premature.

I'm going to Friday night of Pitchfork in a couple weeks to see Phoebe Bridgers. Very excited. The Delta Variant is serious and a big music festival is probably not the wisest thing in the world. But I'm fully vaccinated and it's an outdoor event which makes me feel better. I just really want to see PB. There are some other good bands on the bill, too.

Big Thief who I've seen before. Animal Collective who I've seen. But there's also Fiery Furnaces, Black Midi, etc. who I have not see. Fiery Furnaces has some bangers.

Then the day after I'll be driving to see Wilco at another outdoor music festival. Gonna be a great 48 hours of music for me. Rock and roll.
