Other compilations have longer track lists and go farther back into their career, but no Hall and Oates greatest-hits collection surpasses Rock 'n Soul Part I. Originally released at the height of the duo's career in fall 1983, the 12-song set functions as a time machine back into an era when Daryl Hall and John Oates dominated the charts with songs that have long since become standards.
While a majority of the anthology draws from the group's trio of mammoth RCA albums spanning 1980 through 1982, it also includes the pair's only three Top 10 smashes from the 1970s: "Sara Smile," "She's Gone," and the chart-topping "Rich Girl." One-stop shopping for the absolute best of Hall and Oates doesn't come any easier.
With one listen to this definitive-sounding version of Rock ‘n Soul Part I, you'll understand why the duo's music not only ruled radio and record stores in the Reagan era but also continues to be referenced by influential artists today.
