Tyrone Davis seems to have more than his share of hits compilations, both domestic through Brunswick and imported courtesy of Diablo, but the rejuvenated 20 Greatest Hits earns the recommendation because of its digital remastering job. Davis' gritty yearning and the stylish, brassy productions of Brunswick's Willie Henderson and Carl Davis sound better than ever on his biggest and best hits, "Can I Change My Mind" (quickly followed by the nearly identical "Is It Something You've Got") and "Turn the Back Hands of Time." Though 20 Greatest Hits doesn't feature as expansive a track listing as Diablo's Turning Back the Hands of Time, the crisp sound and detailed liner notes make it an easy first pick for fans of Davis' expressive uptown sound. ~ John Bush
