There is a good Steely Dan out there, also the new Neil Yound due any day, should be good.

Beside the point, Nrchy, but true. Sorry you couldn't think of one good one to mention, anyway....
I personally don't think the Steely Dan "greatests" fit the category I seek. While they are nice collections of superlative songs, I do not think that the sonics of the recordings on the "greatests" equals or surpasses the originals by any stretch. I do feel qualified on Steely Dan (at least in my own opinion) since they are one of my all-time favorites and I have heard nearly every pressing of every LP. Speaking of which, there is a Kamakiriad by Fagen at auction on the 'Gon right now! wink, wink
4yanx I was trying to think of some good 'greatest hits' CDs/LPs/8-tracks but I wasn't near my system and could not come up with anything off the top of my empty head. So I went and checked. I found a few:
1) twenty years of Jethro Tull - lots of gems hidden away
2) Elton John - To be continued... 4 CD set
3) Cat Stevens Greatest Hits
4) Michael Card 'Joy in the Journey'
