iTunes Editors’ Notes

Dan Fogelberg is at once an idiom of his time, but also timeless in a sense because he was one of the few singer/songwriters able to create nostalgia that sounded like it was your own. From the rolling, Jackson Browne–esque “Part of the Plan” and the heavily orchestrated “Heart Hotels” to the lost-love yearning of “Same Old Lang Syne” and his biggest hit, the gentle “Longer,” Fogelberg defined familiarity. He laid his heart across soothing arrangements that cross-pollinated genres (there’s light jazz, soul, folk, rock, country, and blues here). It's all collected on this set of his best from 1974 to 2001.

The passing of Dan Fogelberg and my childhood

When I heard Dan had died, I was shocked. He was part of my childhood and therefore thought he should be around as long as I remember him. I listened for over an hour to the different songs he sang and parts of my childhood surfaced from memories long forgotten. Rides to school, sock-hops, my first crush and subsequent heartbreak...(sigh). Dan was a part of the soundtrack of my childhood. As an adult musician, I always sought out meaning along with a creative phrase and tune. Surely my foundation came from Dan's influence. When I sit down with my Martin and strum a tune, it's his energy I wish I could channel. Give the gift of a true musician / storyteller this Christmas to the next generation and keep Dan's spirit and music alive. For anyone who has loved and lost, Same Old Lang Syne is a must. For anyone trying to express the depth of emotion love can cause, Longer is a must. For anyone trying to save a love, Make Love Stay. For anyone who has lived through meloncholy and found hope, his music is for you. Dan, thank you for your gifts you gave in this lifetime. The next one will be even better. Peace

Good Bye Dan

December 16th...Dan Fogelberg died this morning after a valiant fight against prostate cancer. Everytime I hear one of his songs, it brings me back to my youth and I can picture where I was, who I was with, what I was doing. Thank you, Dan, for many years of beautiful and thoughtful music and lyrics...your memory will live on forever.

We've lost the Leader of the Band

Rest in peace, my friend. Your music is still here to soothe us.

If James Taylor epitomized the definition and the original, late-'60s incarnation of the term singer/songwriter, Dan Fogelberg exemplified the late-'70s equivalent of that term at its most highly developed and successful, with a string of platinum-selling albums and singles into the early '80s and a long career afterward, interrupted only by a health crisis that led to his untimely death in 2007. He came out of a musical family, born Daniel Grayling Fogelberg on August 13, 1951, in Peoria, IL, where...
