Trick-The Greatest Hits
Scroll Down For the Review & Info
Released: 1991 Epic
|Rick Nielsen was a highly underrated and
unappreciated guitarist. A lot of his best work was on the Live
at Budokan album but his abilities are also evident on this
CD. This is an excellent Compilation CD. It covers a great deal
of Cheap Trick's career and then some. It' starts out with a
previously unreleased cover of the Beatles "Magical Mystery
Tour". It's hard to do a Beatles song justice but they
definitely did on this one and it was an excellent production as
well. We also have "Dream Police",
"Surrender" and "If You Want My Love".
"The Flame" was a song they originally had
reservations about doing because they felt that it wasn't the
type of song that was representative of their style. But their
change in heart led to another hit song that ended up on this
CD. They also have the live version of "I Want You to Want
Me" from the Live at Budokan (1979) album.
Also from the Live at Budokan album is their great cover
of "Aint that a Shame". To sum it up, It's a good mix:
Covers originals, live tracks, studio tracks and one previously
unreleased track. I don't think you can go wrong with this one.
A close second to this album would be Live at Budokan,
just for the energy of the live performance alone.
