The red rocker returns with a 17 track collection of live greatest hits that spans his entire career! From his work with the seminal band Montrose, through his days with the mighty Van Halen and his work as a platinum selling solo artist, Hallelujah is a must have for any fan of Sammy Hagar and good ole' rock and roll! The CD also includes some very special, once in a lifetime performances with ex Van Halen singer Gary Cherone who joins Sammy for "when its love" and Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony who lends his signature bass talents and backup vocals to "Right Now."
This 15-track single-disc collection was culled from Canned Heat (1967), Boogie With Canned Heat (1968), Living the Blues (1968), Hallelujah (1969), and Future Blues (1970). Arguably, Canned Heat Cookbook (1969) – a hits package in its own right – could be lumped in since it was the first full-length platter with "Going Up the Country," which was initially only issued on a 45-rpm single. During this era, the Heat was inhabited by Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson (guitar/vocals), Larry "The Mole" Taylor (bass), Henry "Sunflower" Vestine (guitar), and Bob "The Bear" Hite (vocals). Frank Cook (drums) contributed to the band's self-titled debut prior to being replaced by Aldolfo "Fito" de la Parra (drums)…
The Best of Leonard Cohen is a greatest hits album by Leonard Cohen, released in 1975. In some countries from Europe, it was released under the title Greatest Hits. In July 2009, this compilation was re-released in England under the title Greatest Hits with updated artwork and a revised track listing. Four tracks from the original 1975 Version ("Lady Midnight", "The Partisan", "Last Year's Man" & "Take This Longing") were removed and nine tracks released after 1975 ("Everybody Knows", "Waiting For The Miracle", "A Thousand Kisses Deep", "The Future", "Closing Time", "Dance Me To The End Of Love", "First We Take Manhattan", "I'm Your Man" and "Hallelujah") were added.
Their Warner Classics debut makes clear that Christina & Michelle Naughton show great imagination in their programming: Messiaen's mystical and epic Visions de l'Amen, composed during World War II, appears alongside John Adams' boisterous and percussive Hallelujah Junction, inspired by a truck stop on the border of Nevada and California. The CD is completed with J.S. Bach's serenely moving Gotttes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit, BWV 106, in an arrangement by the contemporary Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag.
