Arrow Glenn's Greatest Hits...

Hi, I'm new the forum and got this question...
It has just happened that a friend of mine (also a singer as my self)asked me to make him a greates hits cd of Glenn. That's when I realize that it's absolutly impossible to choose 74 or 80 minutes of Glenn's music without leaving excellent stuff out of it. Even more difficult because my friend told me not to leave out Glenn's guest participations. So, the question will be: what would be your choices for this cd if it is a simple cd and it covers Glenn's music from "Blues" till HTP2...By the way, I didn't like much the picks of the Different stages cd...

Give that first man a gift certificate for his friend,
and point him to the GH section of a nearby CD store.

Give that second man a cigar, for the correct answer

It all depends on what kind of stuff your friend wants to hear. If he's a balls to the wall rocker then maybe you could whittle it down to 18 or so of Glenn's most rocking songs as a taster, but if he's into the funk, and the soul, etc etc then you have no chance at all!

Perhaps aim for 3 HTP tracks, 3 solo rockers, 3 covers, 3 ballads, 3 funky ones. It doesn't really matter what you pick to fill those catagories, as they are nearly all winners. And you still should have room to throw in a couple of your own personal favourites!

Best of luck with that one!

Well, I sure know there's no way to do it and that's the problem, I have to do it...James'answer it's pretty good though. And as you say he's more in to the hard stuff so maybe that makes it a little easier. Anyway I won't be able to do it succesfully. And it all started because I force my friend to join me at Glenn's guest appearance with Rata Blanca here in Buenos Aires...as Rata's singer says after the show "how can I pick the mic now?"

It really can't be done, but since the idea is to promote Glenn, I'd stick to the solo material myself. Figuring 18 - 19 tracks on an 80 minute disc, and since your friend likes the "rockier" stuff, I'd select the following:

The Boy Can Sing The Blues
Pickin' Up The Pieces
The Liar
Big Time
Livin'For The Minute
Talkin' To Messiah
I'm Not Your slave
Cover Me
Addiction
The Way It Is
Second Son
Midnight Meditated
Gone
Can't Stop The Flood
Inside
In My Blood
Lost In The Zone
Gasoline
Wherever You Go

Good Luck!

-Marc

I really liked Marc's answer and it's pretty close to what I have on my mind, maybe I'll put You kill me instead of Talkin'to messiah, but thanks a lot. Ben's list it's somehow a little odd, great songs of course.
And Bill, you're right, but my cd recorder it's in its finall steps, and that one ain't cheap pal(it's not cheap here, in my poor country )

The Hughes/Thrall 'Coast To Coast' is my favourite version. for the way Glenn drives his voice on one particular part. Glenn usually sings it in an airy falsetto way on stage and their is nothing wrong with that by the way..but
