Rheostatics - Greatest Hits

Greatest Hits is the first album released from the Rheostatics. Recorded at E-Norm-Us in 1987, this is the disc that started it all. Produced by Tom Atom and Rheostatics. If you don't buy it for the greatness of Tim's Public Square, then you have to get it for the hockey rock history of Bidini'sThe Ballad of Wendel Clark Parts I and II.

For more than two decades, the Rheostatics have mapped new frontiers across Canada, embracing the nation that bore them and reinterpreting its sea-to-shining-sea grandeur in music of startling variety and indisputable beauty. The band has remained fiercely loyal to a unique vision that is entirely dependent upon the alchemical interaction of its members, the catalyzing friction that renders gold from lesser metals - and that distinguishes the Rheostatics from bands of lesser mettle.

The album features the original Rheostatics lineup of Dave Bidini, Dave Clark, Martin Tielli, and Tim Vesely. Can-rock pioneers!

Possible influences include: Little Feat, The Band, Rush and the Ramones.
