THE WHO...Who's Greatest Hits  (1983)
Who's Greatest Hits was released 30 years ago today in 1983.  It reached number 94 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  I'll give it a 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.  Had the album not had a severely edited version of "Won't Get Fooled Again" I would have given it a 4 out of 5 stars.  It also includes an edited version of "Who Are You" but it's not so severely butchered.   The album contains some fantastic songs, but as with all compilations, you always ask "Where's this song, where's that song?"  You could argue that point all day, but in the end this is a good collection.  "Won't Get Fooled Again' is the ultimate rock 'n' roll song, but because of the edited version here (which I usually skip) the highlight on the album for me is "Love Reign O'er Me."  What an excellent song that is.   Much better Who compilations have come out since this one, and Allmusic calls this a sampler album.  That might sum it up quite accurately, but it's still a good listen

Nikon D200 was launched way back in November 2005 and still
is one of the favorites for beginners in photography field.
However, if you face a data loss situation, in absence of a valid backup, no need to worry.
It helps capture images in challenging lighting conditions, with
an exceptional low-light performance.

This battery really surprised me with how much work I could get done in a single
day. When you finish with the app, most people just hit the Home
button or the back arrow button go to the main menu.

With the revolutionary Thunderbolt technology, you'll be able to achieve bi-directional channels with transfer speeds to peripherals like external hard drives and servers up to an amazing 10 Gbps--while also connecting to a Display - Port-compatible high-resolution display.

With the introduction of 1080p HD video recording, photographers now have the chance to move into the field
of film and experiment with a bevy of large-aperture lenses such as the 50L
and 85L. In contrast, the 5DIII exhibits no loss
of fine detail at ISO 6400. I love taking pictures of insects and flowers in ways that most people miss.

Invest the money you saved into some nice accessories.
The Power - Shot SD890 IS Digital Camera is on the cutting edge of Canon technology, being the only
of its class to offer a full 5x digital zoom.

It's slightly different in terms of look and design, but in terms of functionality the only improvement is a digital zoom.
