|These cds need to be released once and for all.Friction is out,and so is the self titled,but the best cd in my opinion is Outta Hand which isnt out.Also check out Carl Dixons solo "ONE" cd.

|Although in my opinion they were among the greatest canadian bands of the 80's, Coney Hatch never got the success they deserved. This band really kicks a.. I already own a cd copy of "Coney Hatch", "Friction" and "Best of Three", but I agree with GW, they have to reissue "Outa Hand"!!! Please!!!!

|Amazing band. Good, solid, straight ahead hard rock.....one of the best Canuck bands ever. FRICTION is their best album but all 3 are awesome stuff.

|There are (were)a lot of great canadian bands like indeed Moxy, Triumph, Honeymoon Suite, Prism etc. etc. but as a pure hardrock band I think they were the best !

|I agree with freddy on this band ! Canada has had a lot of fantastic bands (see above, but also Max Webster), but this was the best, certainly in the pure hardrockfield ! NOT TO BE MISSED !!!!

|Probably all the Coney Hatch one would need. I like the early rawer songs such as "Devil's Deck" and also the more polished tracks selected from their third album, but the middle does not do too much for me. 7/10

|Considering the bands 3 albums, all their best songs are here. For the casual Coney Hatch fan, this is all you will need. Still all of their albums are recommended listening with "Friction" being the perfected one.

|great band great sound,Canada have come up with some of the best rock bands

|Bought this one because I thought "Monkey Bars" was just off the hook. I found out that this band was way more than a one hit wonder for me. "Devil's Deck", "Hey Operator", "This Ain't Love", and "The Girl From Last Night's Dream" are killer AOR and should have been huge hits. Just one listen is all it will take and you'll be hooked too. Excellent best of and a great way to get to know an amazing band you may have been missing out on. Worth it for "Monkey Bars" alone!!!

|Wow, I can't believe you all like and even love this...I couldn't find one song that stuck out. I mean the musicianship is there, but they just couldn't find that catchy song that sticks to you all day, moves you, or takes you away! I mean fantasy is pretty good though. Metalmusicman said he bought this albm because of "Monkey Bars" I heard that song and it's very choppy, no catchy chorus, nothing! To me anytime you have to slow the song down and make it choppy, it's a filler no doubt about it!

|It's a shame though, the musicianship is there, The guitarist is great, the singer has a sweet/yet raunchy voice. They just couldn't find that one hit to take them over the edge. Creativity is a bitch! Well, I love great bands but unfortunately this is not one of them. I will keep listening to it and hopefully something will jump out or grow on me! Girl from last night's dream is pretty cool...It's all very rick springfield though with a little more balls!

|First Time for everything has to be in the top 10 aor songs ever!!!!! good band, first album was harder and the next two were more song orieneted with stronger melodies, great best of comp!!!

|I have had their 3 releases on vinyl ever since they came out! Picked this up a few years ago just to be able to play it in my car (I don't like tapes). As most say, a very underated band from Canada. If you haven't heard them before this is easily available and worth hearing!
