THUNDER – The Greatest Hits [remastered +3] (2019)
Celebrating three decades of music, British melodic hard rock institution THUNDER are releasing this 28 track double album properly entitled ‘The Greatest Hits’. Thirty years into their career the time feels right to look back on what’s been done, taking stock of some fantastic work, but keeping one eye on the horizon and what is yet to come.
‘The Greatest Hits’ is a comprehensive, cohesive and career-spanning collection, taking in material from every single album since the debut that propelled them onto the world stage, 1990’s ‘Backstreet Symphony’ which hit number 21 in the charts.
‘Greatest Hits’ includes material taken from releases right up till 2017’s ‘Rip It Up’, which hit No.3 in the Charts, and 2019’s ‘Please Remain Seated’. In fact, the last three Thunder albums – ‘Wonder Days’, ‘Rip It Up’ and ‘Please Remain Seated’ have all enjoyed UK Top Ten status in the Album Chart.
The tracks chosen for ‘The Greatest Hits’ shows perfectly the arc of evolution that the band has travelled over three decades, developing, challenging themselves and always moving on: without ever losing the core elements that make them special.
German rockers Thunder have announced their first-ever band-curated The Greatest Hits for September 27th. The project will feature at least one track from all 12 of their studio albums, including a couple of their favorite cover songs. There will be 28 remastered tracks on 3 CD, 2 CD, 3 LP and digital formats. The 3 CD version includes the live show that was streamed at Planet Rock’s London studios on January 18, 2019. The artwork is chock full of memorabilia pics and interviews.
This is the first-ever band-curated Greatest Hits, with the band themselves selecting at least one track from all 12 of their studio albums, including a couple of their favorite cover songs such as the previously unreleased take on Led Zeppelin’s ‘Your Time Is Gonna Come’.
‘The Greatest Hits’ indeed packs the best Thunder songs to enjoy in a fully remastered sound.
