Great White
Absolute Hits
June 2011
Released: 2011, EMI/Capitol
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

It’s 2011 and we get a new compilation from Great White. As much as I love Great White I had to ask myself why. Does it contain any new music? Anything off their last few releases? Is it a more comprehensive collection? Is it a major sonic upgrade? Unfortunately the answer to these questions is: NO.

When I need a quick fix of Great White I tend to grab my 2001 Capitol GREATEST HITS disc. It has all my favorite GW songs on it including “Wasted Rock Ranger” which is omitted from this new ABSOLUTE HITS disc. Both of these discs are nearly identical track-wise and sound the same to my ears. This makes me believe it was a contractual obligation release that the band had no say in which is unfortunate. This does not take away from the music in the least. As you’d expect all the big hits are here such as “Lady Red Light”, “Call It Rock and Roll”, “House of Broken Love” and their cover of the old Mott The Hoople classic; “Once Bitten Twice Shy”. An excellent starting point to get onboard with Great White. For the rest of us…….not so much as we own the albums or at least the previous compilation disc.
