Sony Special Products' Hits Of series follows a pretty set script. The discs are short at only ten tracks and contain a mix of big hits, middling hits, and totally forgotten songs by pretty well-known artists. It is a unique strategy that brings some interesting songs to light and makes for good listening. The big hits on Hits of 1988 come from Will to Power ("Baby I Love Your Way/Freebird (Medley)") and Terence Trent D'Arby ("Wishing Well"). The rest of the disc is made up of big artists and some of their not-so-big songs like REO Speedwagon's "Here With Me," Cyndi Lauper's "Hole in My Heart (All the Way to China)," and New Kids on the Block's "Please Don't Go Girl" as well as tunes by Henry Lee Summer and Johnny Kemp. One wishes the disc were longer to take more advantage of the curious song selections. As it is, the short running time makes the disc hard to recommend to anyone but the most devoted '80s fans. ~ Tim Sendra
