There's no question that the marketers deliberately leave a song(s) off of certain 'best of' compilations, sometimes a hidden gem as you say, but also some of the prime rib.

So far every time I've purchased a best of CD, I've been disappointed. Most of the music that I like never made the "best of" category. I try and avoid it if possible.

I hear ya Cat, I picked up an Elton John collection the other day...lots of good songs on it but they left off one of my Fav's "Funeral for a Friend" and a couple of other classic songs for some of EJ's later 'pop' hits.

A lot of the time they also put a rarity on the compilation to get people to buy it.

I agree, Ken. I love finding the hidden gems on the albums. Plus, when I listen, I prefer sitting down for an entire album and listening to all the tracks. I don't know what that has to do with best-ofs and stuff, but I thought I'd throw that in.

Oh, I rarely listen to an entire album. I like mixing things up like crazy. But the first time I get a CD, I'll listen to the whole thing, just to get a feel for it.

I can second the sentiment on the "Best Ofs" but this was a compilation of various artists. I might want an album of....say Nat King Cole but I am not sure about groups like The Rooftop Singers.
