Guide Picks - Top 10 Greatest Hits Collections
When getting to know an artist's work, sometimes picking up a Greatest Hits package is the best introduction you'd need. What better way than to listen to all the best that artist has recorded? Below, you'll find what I feel are the Top 10 Greatest Hits Collections.
1) Greatest Hits - Tim McGraw
Tim McGraw released his Greatest Hits package at the end of 2000, and even without additional tracks this CD was named the top album of 2001, selling 2 million copies.
