Editors’ Notes

Released on vinyl in October 1983, Greatest Hits—Rock ’N Soul, Part 1 featured the 12 songs that Hall & Oates' current record label thought the world should have when it came to the extremely popular Philly duo. They added two additional songs to the cassette and CD issues: “Family Man” and “You’ve Got That Lovin’ Feeling.” Two new songs—“Say It Isn’t So” and “Adult Education”—went onto to become hits of their own. Only the band’s sixth and final Top 40 No. 1 hit, “Out of Touch,” had yet to be released; this set showed the company’s sharp instincts for giving casual fans a perfect, succinct collection to play over and over without interruption from those pesky album tracks. Here, early hits like “Sara Smile” and “She’s Gone” fit the program perfectly. While there are certainly more inclusive and in-depth summaries of the duo’s career, this brief 14-song collection may be the most guilty-pleasure way to enjoy the group. Surely, those who grew up with the album have memorized the sequence—and that’s saying quite a bit.

Customer Reviews

Do your homework!

Whoever wrote the iTune editor's notes for this album should be fired. The cassette and cd versions of this album did not contain the songs Family Man and You've Lost That Loving Feeling when it first came out. Those two songs were added in the 2000's when this album was re-issued. And Out Of Touch was not their last top 40 hit. They had eight more top 40 hits after this song. Two of those making the top five on the hot 100. Wow!

great album

these white guys can sing soul

unhappy customer
