This greatest hits album gathers 20 favorite tracks by The Tourists, Annie Lenox and David A. Stewart's band before the Eurythmics. Songs showcasing their talents and those of songwriter Pete Coombes include "Ain't No Room," "Blind Among The Flowers," and "Save Me."
The Tourists: Pete Coombs (vocals, guitar); Annie Lennox (vocals); Dave Stewart (guitar); Eddie Chin (bass guitar); Jim Toomey (drums).
Topping the Tourists' previous singles collection by ten tracks, Greatest Hits is a definitive portrait of the group; focusing on the contributions of Pete Coombes rather than on the more secondary work of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, it includes tracks like "Blind Among the Flowers," "Don't Say I Told You So," "It Doesn't Have to Be This Way" and "So Good to Be Back Home." ~ Jason Ankeny
