Best Of Dark Horse 1976 – 1989 CD


Initial UK Release Date 23 October 1989
Initial UK Catalogue Number Dark Horse 925 726-2
Weeks On UK Chart (to date) Failed to chart
Peak UK Chart Position


Released on 23 October 1989 in the UK and 17 October 1989 in the US, this second compilation from George, featuring tracks from his recordings on his Dark Horse label, failed to chart in the UK and only managed to reach number 132 in the US. This is quite surprising considering his Cloud Nine album and singles and the first Traveling Wilburys album and singles had done so well over the previous two years.

Unlike his previous compilation, George was heavily involved with this project and decided to omit some chart singles in favour of album tracks. He also chose to include the excellent Cheer Down, which he’d contributed to the Lethal Weapon 2 soundtrack, and two new tracks, Poor Little Girl and Cockamamie Business, that he’d recorded in July 1989 at his home studios at Friar Park.

The initial UK and US CD releases are both on Dark Horse with catalogue number 925 726-2 and were released on the same date as their vinyl counterparts. The CD release included one more track (Gone Troppo) than the vinyl release. The UK CD was made in Germany. There were no further releases for this album after this one.

The pictures below are of my UK release. The case (usual light storage marks), CD and insert are all in excellent condition.

Estimated Value : £5 – £10
