Description by OLDIES.com:

Essential Daryl Hall & John Oates is a comprehensive 2-CD collection that fully represents the stunning string of hits of these pop superstars. Crowned as the most successful pop duo of all time by the RIAA in 1984 - a title they retain today - Daryl Hall & John Oates remain highly active and visible on stage, in the studio, and on television. Their songs are part of the cultural fabric of American radio. Pop, Adult Contemporary, R&B, smooth jazz, classic dance, and 80s formats are just some of the places where you can still hear classic songs like "She's Gone," "Sara Smile," "Rich Girl," "Out Of Touch," "One On One," "Maneater," "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)" and many, many others.

More than 30 years into their career, the duo continues to score hits, including their 2002 #1 Adult Contemporary "comeback" single "Do It For Love." Essential Daryl Hall & John Oates features not only all 28 of their Top 40 hits as a duo, but also their later adult contemporary chart-toppers and classic early 70's FM airplay tracks.

RCA/Arista/Legacy's 2005 release The Essential Daryl Hall & John Oates is a repackaging of BMG Heritage's excellent 2004 compilation Ultimate Daryl Hall + John Oates. Spanning two discs and 37 tracks, the set contains all 18 songs from 2001's The Very Best of Daryl Hall & John Oates, which was a single-disc, 18-track collection that contained all of the duo's big hits from the '70s and '80s (three tracks were in alternate single mixes on that collection; they're presented in their original album mixes here), along with "She's Gone" (absent on The Very Best) and two other Atlantic tracks from the early '70s, selections from their Arista recordings of the late '80s and early '90s, as well as cuts from 1997's Marigold Sky and 2003's excellent comeback single, "Do It for Love." While there are still plenty of great album tracks, particularly from the Atlantic years, that would have been welcome additions, that's something only the hardcore fans who already have all the albums will quibble about. For the less dedicated listener, all that matters is that there are no major hits missing on The Essential Daryl Hall & John Oates (there are a couple of low-charting singles from the late '70s that have been left behind, but their absence isn't notable) and that the remastered sound is very good, making this an ideal compilation for fans looking for a thorough, career-spanning collection of hits. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
