Your Favorites Gr Hits 2CD set. That Night In Toronto DVD Bonus DVD of all band's videos (23 in all), as well as 11 new video vignettes exclusive to this package.
Canada is a big nation with a lot of great music, but the Tragically Hip have absolutely no equal in the Great White North. While the band remains at best a cult hit in other parts of the world, they have reigned in the Canadian rock scene in a way that no other group has done since the '70s heyday of the Band, the Guess Who, and BTO. In the nearly two decades that the Hip has been writing and recording, they have never released a greatest hits album, so fans will revel in this long-awaited four-disc set. It kicks off with two CDs of music aptly named Yer Favourites. The 37 digitally remastered songs were chosen entirely by fans, with the exception of a pair of new tracks, a wry rocker dubbed "No Threat" and the understated "The New Maybe." The collection embodies the band's appeal; whether you're a fan of alternative music, mainstream rock, or bluesy country, the Hip make music that just feels really good to listen to. The package also includes two DVDs: the first, entitled "That Night in Toronto" is a concert that captures all the charm, eccentricity, and enthusiasm fans expect in a great Hip show. Highlights include a unique moment in which cameras capture thousands of fans singing along passionately to lyrics detailing Canadian war history ("Nautical Disaster"), as well as amped-up versions of older tracks, from "Blow at High Dough" to "Little Bones." The second DVD includes all of their previous videos, some low-key short films that were used as backdrops to live shows, and a charming, 50-minute documentary of daily band life entitled "Macroscopic." There's is nothing even remotely showbiz in Hipeponymous, just an honest, down-to-earth representation of a group that has come to personify the best of eccentric, intelligent rock & roll. --Denise Sheppard
