Greatest Hits contains all the group's best songs in this 18-track collection. Included are the essential hits "Mr. Sandman," "(It's No) Sin," "Tell Me Why," "Three Coins in a Fountain," and "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing." The Four Aces are due for some revisiting. Pop culture has returned to their musical fountain over the years, from Back to the Future ("Mr. Sandman") to Moulin Rouge ("Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" opens the track "Elephant Love Medley"). Some of the other standout tracks include the Hoagy Charmichael song "Heart and Soul" and "Should I?." A group worth discovering, and a top-notch collection. ~ JT Griffith
