Janis Joplin's Greatest Hits

More than “Cheap Thrills” or even “Pearl,” “Greatest Hits” has helped keep Janis Joplin’s short-lived recording career alive for listeners who came along after her tragic 1970 death. “Me and Bobby McGee” is the biggest draw, of course — it was a posthumous No. 1 single — but the other tracks are equally captivating.

Queen: Greatest Hits

“Bohemian Rhapsody.” “Will Rock You.” The music of Queen is legendary, and the untimely death of Freddie Mercury ended the colorful life of an immensely gifted showman. For the first time ever, all of Queen’s beloved hits are on one disc along with three bonus tracks: “I’m In Love With My Car,” “Under Pressure” and “Tie Your Mother Down.”
