This CD is an odd assortment of songs, apparently put together by taking requests from Japanese fans as to which songs they would like to see on a new compilation. It has about an equal number of singles and non-single album tracks.
There is little new on this collection; the remixes of "Mr. Guder" and "One Love" had not turned up on any previous general release, however, and the remix of "Road Ode" is quite rare. Strangely, some songs for which remixes have been done, like "Superstar," are presented in their original mixes.
The liner notes are extensive, but almost entirely in Japanese, so I don't know exactly what they say. I believe most of the Japanese is just a printing of the "requests" from many different fans.
Produced by Richard Carpenter, Karen Carpenter and Jack Daugherty
