SO excited! Placed my order and now I'm going to be anxiously waiting until it arrives :)
HANSON ANNOUNCE 25TH ANNIVERSARY ALBUM MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE - THE GREATEST HITS
“This album and the extensive world tour are really exciting for us, because it’s the first time we’ve assembled a true career-spanning collection in one product, or one concert,” said guitarist Isaac Hanson. “The addition of I Was Born to this album is our way of still looking to the future, even as we celebrate where we have been for the last two decades,” added keyboardist and middle brother, Taylor Hanson.
The band initially formed in 1992 performing locally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and releasing 3 independent albums before being signed in 1996 by Mercury Records. Their breakout album Middle Of Nowhere, lead by the iconic debut single “Mmmbop” which was #1 in 27 countries simultaneously, sparked the band’s meteoric rise to international fame, and was followed by multiple Grammy nominations, and a two decade long career of chart topping singles, including “Where’s The Love”, “I Will Come To You”, “Weird”, “This Time Around”, “If Only”, “Save Me”, “Penny And Me”, “Give A Little”, “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’” and “Get The Girl Back”. In 2003 the band founded their own independent record label 3CG Records, which has released 4 of their 6 studio albums to date and lead to numerous world tours, playing to their dedicated fanbase. Since the groups founding they have accomplished a rare combination of commercial success and critical respect, with outlets such as the Village Voice calling HANSON “the finest straight up rock band in America”. The band has sold over 16 million albums.
Starting at ages 11, 9 and 6, brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac were first inspired to make music while listening to 1950’s and early 60’s soul music and Rock ‘n’ Roll, citing influences from Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, The Beatles and Elvis, to Little Richard and Chuck Berry. These influences formed the bedrock of their musical inspiration, helping to forge their signature sound, which incorporates soulful melodies and song craft.
In 2007 the band began their “Take The Walk” campaign, which helps to combat extreme poverty and HIV/AIDS, serving thousands of individuals in need throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2013, the group founded Hanson Brothers Beer Company, winning a gold medal in the World Beer Championships for their signature Pale Ale “Mmmhops”. In 2014 they founded The Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival in their hometown of Tulsa, OK, bringing together more than 40,000 people annually, for one of the country’s leading Craft Beer and Music Festivals.

I'm so excited to buy the Cd and book and a cassette, how retro! I recently bought MON on cassette for my collection too :-)
Don't forget to get the retro style bucket hat :)
I answered this elsewhere - these are remastered from the originals
Are the songs sung love, or they just the songs taken from the albums?!?!

Oh man, if only I had a cassette player! Or a cd player for that matter lol. My laptop and my car are my only cd players heehee. But I will definitely be ordering the physical copy anyway.
This is so exciting!
If you have an issue with really high shipping for international, contact CS. We're still setting everything up and will be double checking that in the am.
I love greatest hits album! I wait received it!
So it's basically the songs making up the setlists on tour, which is what I thought possible initially. Well, except for Underneath. A little sad Runaway Run isn't on there... but Broken Angel makes me happy.
I love "the minute without you" reference. And I used to wear a bucket hat all the time when I was a teenager.
Aaaahhh! New stuff in the store - we are all so excited! I'm loving the track list too. Well done on making those tough decisions, especially after we didn't help very well by having such varying opinions in the survey. I was curious last year when we were asked to choose not only our top 25 album songs but also our top 15 member's songs. I was hopeful that the second CD was going to be the best of the member's songs, but...it wasn't to be.
I have a question too please Leigh...
Will there be a 2016-17 Pictures Book released, or is this MOE Greatest Hits Photo book instead of the Pictures Book this year?
