Released by Collectables in 2003, this particular Greatest Hits is actually the same as 2002's The Best of Shalamar, released by EMI-Capitol Special Markets. The packaging is a different form of cheap, but the content is exactly the same. Again, as a brief introduction, it's satisfactory, featuring "A Night to Remember," "Over and Over," "Right in the Socket," "The Second Time Around," "Make That Move," and "Take That to the Bank." If you're looking to dig a little deeper than this, go with just about any one of the several anthologies that includes far more material. A lot of Shalamar compilations favor short single edits over the full album versions. This, thankfully, isn't one of them.
