Dan Fogelberg, emerging out of his native Peoria, Illinois, officially hung the shingle of his artistic practice in 1971 when Clive Davis convinced him to join his growing Columbia Records family that included such other recent new artist signings as Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel. Working with legendary producer Norbert Putnam, he released his first album, 1972's Home Free, an effort announcing to his peers and to the public that a new artist had officially arrived.
The follow-up album, 1974's Souvenirs, produced by future Eagle Joe Walsh, brought commercial recognition with the bright, uptempo, "Part Of The Plan." It eventually paved the way for the back-to-back double platinum successes of Phoenix (1979) and the revered two-record The Innocent Age, the latter which firmly established Fogelberg commercially with the hits "Same Old Lang Syne," "Hard To Say," "Leader of the Band" and "Run For the Roses."
Fogelberg, who died in late 2007 at the age of 56, never looked back, building an impressive and varied body of work, sometimes taking the creative road less traveled, sometimes speaking directly to, and touching, the heart of the masses. Along the way he has made us think, raised our collective consciousness and, even when articulating troubling themes, left us with hope. With a genius for both melody and harmony, a soulfully angelic singing voice, and a natural gift for romantic expression, Fogelberg has created songs that have become so embedded in our collective consciousness that they still resound with authentic magic and beauty years after they first emerged.
Originally released in October of 1982 by Epic Records, this compilation of hits by Dan Fogelberg includes material that was issued on prior full-lengths except the two previously unreleased tracks "Missing You" and "Make Love Stay." Featured cuts "Hard to Say," "Longer," "Leader of the Band," and "Same Old Lang Syne," all became Top 10s while "Heart Hotels," "Missing You," Make Love Stay" and "Run For The Roses" cracked the Top 40.
