Best of Shooting Star, Vol. 2 features material from the Kansas City band's latter Geffen years, including cuts from Silent Scream, It's Not Over, and Leap of Faith. Fans will find it a worthy companion to the Star's first greatest-hits comp, which due to record company shenanigans, was only able to include earlier material. With their back catalog safely secured, Shooting Star have issued this retrospective as a remedy. Highlights include the Bad Company-ish "Are You on My Side," as well as the ballad "Couldn't Get Enough." Vol. 2 also includes live versions of earlier Shooting Star highlights "Hang on for Your Life," "Do You Feel Alright," and "Touch Me Tonight." It's issued through the band's own Cow Town imprint.
