Album Review

This 11-track Boney M. compilation collects a few of the act's essential recordings, among them "Rivers of Babylon" (their only U.S. Top 40 hit), "Daddy Cool," and a single edit of the eternal holiday favorite, "Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord" (one of the U.K.'s all-time biggest selling singles).
