Cheap Trick – The Essential…

36-track masterclass in larger-than-life rock

Trending Now

Not many bands hold a candle to Chicago’s Cheap Trick. Busting out of the ’70s, they turned a fixation with The Move and ELO into an advantage, with a ferociously hard rhythm section rolling underneath guitarist Rick Nielsen’s sharp writing and the full-bore vocals of blond bombshell Robin Zander. Twenty-five years later, the Trick haven’t outstayed their welcome. This two-CD set collates the best of their debut and the magnificent In Color, adds the radio hits “Surrender” and “Dream Police” and finds space for some recent liaisons with Chrissie Hynde and Billy Corgan. Thrilling, audacious and bang on the money.
