More Info:

"Shooting Star" is one of those '80s rock bands that never got the exposure and airplay they deserved (in my opinion.) This compilation has their biggest hits from the '80s and includes a few tracks from the '90s and beyond. "Last Chance" (the nearly seven minute hit from their eponymous debut) and "Hang On For Your Life", "Are You on My Side", "Flesh and Blood", "Breakout", and "Hollywood" (all from "Hang On For Your Life") were just some of the popular hits in my neck of the woods. Like "Kansas" (the band) they were not afraid to mix strings with electric guitars, drums, keyboards, and vocals to produce catchy songs. This two CD set is well worth the price. Please note that the Renaissance Records release of "Anthology" differs from other releases of the anthology, most notably the inclusion of "Flesh and Blood" which other reviewers have stated is missing.
