One of those odd collections that flags its contents with a vague "greatest and latest" subtitle, but it's only when you get it home that you really discover what you have. Which, in this case, isn't too bad...at least if you don't mind not having the original versions of the best-known songs. All 18 tracks here are relatively recent (1995) recordings, whether they are the brand new numbers that point to the renaissance that Quatro was undergoing, or new takes on old hits -- most of the album draws from Quatro's back catalog, and her latest band does have a great time trying to recapture the manic energy of the original recordings, which may or may not do it for the casual listener. More fun, though, are the title track and her excellent revision of Springsteen's "Born to Run," both of which would deserve pride of place on any future all-consuming Quatro box set.
