Of course I had to start digging.
You know how Walmart has those giant cardboard bins of "stuff" in the aisles? Well, this CD bin was huge and I was folded over the top, just pawing through. I kept coming across tons of Glam, all of it called Ten Great Songs. There was Slaughter, KISS, RATT, Queensryche... I also came across some other random greatest hits (Great White, Journey) and then just straight albums from the likes of Van Halen and Aerosmith.
I had most everything I came across, so I did not take home any of the Ten Great Songs compilations. I mean, true fans already have the hit songs. For example, the Queensryche disc features "Empire" and "Jet City Woman."
I suppose a $5 CD is a good introduction to Glam for a lot of fans. I mean, if someone is completely clueless to RATT, then $5 isn't much of an investment into their hits. Still, it's all a cash grab for Capitol Records, but it is what it is - labels are in business to make money. Oh, there was even a Ten Great Songs from Poison - which means they officially have ANOTHER greatest hits compilation floating around. I suppose my favorite part of the Ten Great Songs series is that the title explicitly states what you get: just awesome music. For someone in a position to replace music, the songs are a steal. And for teenagers, the price is especially great for library building. I wish there was such a collection for $5 when I was a kid. I spent a ton on music and a price break sure would have helped.
Do you own any of the Ten Great Songs series?
