A Great CD if your a Big Journey and Steve Perry Fan, its a must buy.

Annointed Voice

SpinTheTale

Even though some of the songs in this collection are too saccharine pop for my taste, (one can see who influenced Journey's direction from Classic Rock to the Pop Rock of "Raised on Radio"), Steve Perry's voice and the melodies/harmonies he imagines and sings are superior to anything out right now in the Pop/Rock Scene. His voice, in my opinion, is annointed by God. His music brings joy to the heart and sweet comfort to the soul. This is why he and Journey need to practice some steps in reconciliation and forgiveness and make some more great music! When they write/play/sing together, the Spirit moves! (Maybe he'll do a gospel album in the future...Actually, You Better Wait features worship leader, Lincoln Brewster on lead guitar). Go Away and Once in A Lifetime, Girl contain examples of the harmonies that I'm talking about. People should get these songs to show their kids what true music really sounds like and what song craftsmanship really is. Steve Perry is the Sam Cooke of my Generation.

Greatest Hits Steve Perry

buck maxim

I enjoy older music and it's great to see iTunes add to the collection. I look to iTunes to buy the songs I like, not whole albums. That is the advantage over music stores - not having to spend over ten dollars just to get one song. I just wish the music video of Oh Sherrie was available. I remember it on MTV.

About Steve Perry

Smooth, bold, and powerful but pretty—the voice of Journey frontman Steve Perry is one of arena rock's signature sounds. A struggling singer from California’s Central Valley who had all but given up on music before taking a call in 1977 from Journey manager Walter Herbert, Perry helped redirect the band’s jazz-influenced progressive rock toward the mainstream. Journey's new sound—a blend of hard-rock muscle and pop-ballad sensitivity—made them one of the 1980s’ hugest successes and a touchpoint for bands from Bon Jovi to Foo Fighters. Just revisit Perry’s first appearance with the band, “Lights,” which imagined ’60s soul on a blockbuster scale, or the era-defining “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which took the uplift of Bruce Springsteen to stratospheric heights. Speaking to an interviewer in 2008, Perry described the feeling of being at a club and seeing a new generation sing along to “Don’t Stop Believin’” on the stereo: “There’s something reverent about that to me,” he said. “And I only wish to protect it, because it means something to them like it means something to me.”
