Greatest Hits Collection replaces the 1980 compilation Andy Gibb's Greatest Hits. The disc features all of the previous collection's songs -- the hits "After Dark," "Desire," "An Everlasting Love," "I Just Want to Be Your Everything," "(Love Is) Thicker Than Water," "(Our Love) Don't Throw It All Away" and "Shadow Dancing," plus "Me (Without You)" and "Time Is Time," which were only on Greatest Hits -- and it also adds "Man on Fire" and "Flowing Rivers." The result is an excellent summation of Gibb's brief career, and for most fans, it will be the only Gibb album they'll need. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
