October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

-Dan

this was y and t in there prime . this was a very underrated band . in the hard rock field they were one of the better bands by far buy this this is some good stuff

From: Gar Date: January 31, 2003 at 0:42
If you don't have any of their albums already, this is the one to get. The track selection is excellent, plus there are a couple of surpises for the die hards. Great songs from a great band.

From: cruise Date: September 15, 2003 at 16:22
All the best tracks from the early albums make this a fantastic hits package. The live tracks are are surprisingly poor for such an awesome live act but this is still great. 9/10

From: Impaler Date: February 22, 2004 at 0:42
A good collection but missing some key songs I would have included. I guess you will have to buy all the albums!

From: holyroller Date: February 29, 2004 at 11:38
Pretty good sampler for anyone interested in checking them out, and about the easiest one to find, too. Still don't know what's up with that cover though.

The Y&T songs are timeless classics. In England you can get this CD at the London HMV, Virgin Megastore and Tower Records. The other great works Earthshaker, Black Tiger, Meanstreak, In Rock We Trust, etc., are on "Import" and literally unavailable. The record companies need to promote Y&T's music to a younger generation of fans. This isn't crash, bang, wallop nonsensical heavy metal. This is beautifully structured rock with classic guitar phrases. Younger people need to be made aware of Y&T.

No Contagious? Great album nonetheless.

Contagious came out in '87. Good album though!

From: Lynchomaniac Date: June 6, 2004 at 7:20
There's some great stuff on this disc, but the band's best era came with the albums "Down for the count", "Contagious" and "Ten" IMO. A era that this album for the most part doesn't cover

From: Geoff Date: May 4, 2005 at 1:26
I hate to say it, but I don't actually have the early Y & T albums (I only have 'In rock we trust' and after), so this is a great CD for me, as I like what I hear, but like a Helix or Black n'Blue best of... it appears to cover the early years well and although I can enjoy the songs here I don't feel as though I need to go out and buy the early discs. I love 'Forever' and 'Summertime girls' is cool too. Must admit I wouldn't say no if the albums were on offer to me either

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 25, 2006 at 20:39
For anybody newly discovering Y&T, this is the place to start. It covers the bands best period for sure. Of course there are plenty more great Y&T songs from their whole career to be heard & this disc will just wet your appetite for more.

From: metalmastermusic Date: July 25, 2008 at 10:48
Nothing more to say than the comments above. My fave tracks are Summertime Girls and Meanstreak. 85/100
