Over the years the who have released album after album of their geatest hits. First there was Meaty, beaty, big, and bouncy. Then there was the rarities collection, Odds and sods. We were welcomed to this album in 1982. IN 1985 there was the who's greatest hits, in 1988 there was Who's better, Who's best. And so on. The fact is that the who will always continue to release greatest hits albums. My suggestion would be to get original albums, it really is a waste of time trying to collect the who's greatest songs, by the time you did it you would own every album released. This is NOT the best 80's compilation, this album severely lacks material, it doesn't even have Won't get fooled again on it, among many other songs. However this is a good collection if you are new to the who. If you want a compilation album get the most recent greatest hits release. But if you really don't want to waste time, buy the who's original albums rather than fooling with the greatest hits series.
