    There's been quite a bit of discussion recently about the Singles 1969-1973 and 1974-1978 so I thought it'd be fun to complete the set...



    The Singles 1978-1983

    1. Touch Me When We're Dancing
    2. Make Believe It's Your First Time
    3. Beechwood 4-5789
    4. I Believe You
    5. (Want You) Back In My Life Again
    6. Your Baby Doesn't Love You Anymore
    7. Those Good Old Dreams
    8. The Christmas Song
    9. Now


    The Singles 1984-2001

    1. Tryin' To Get That Feeling Again
    2. Little Altar Boy
    3. The Rainbow Connection
    4. If I Had You
    5. Honolulu City Light
    6. Something In Your Eyes
    7. You're The One
    8. Karen's Theme



    ...

    So obviously these two don't stand as strong as the previous two but what do you think of these as being singles albums?
    Would these work as albums? Are there any tracks you'd remove or add (keep in mind "Singles 1974-1978" also used a couple of B-Sides)

    What a great idea for a thread!

    On the first set I’d maybe add Sailing On The Tide which was a B-side and would round it out to an even ten tracks.

    Great idea add these two singles album ideas along with the two original volumes You got A Complete and Very definitive collection. So far I wouldn't really change what was suggested some of my favorites appear on both lists above.

  5. This was a good idea for a thread, but boy what sad collections!! Even I (a fan since 1970) hardly remember (most of) these having been singles!

    If you are referring to “In Love Alone”, it was the B-side to “Calling Your Name Again” in Australia.

    Rare Richard Single
