I came across information tonight about the release of THE ESSENTIAL YANNI CD(Original Recording Remastered) It's available for pre-order from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, CD Universe & probably a few other retailers. The CD will be released on July 13, 2010.
The "ESSENTIAL" Yanni on 2 CD's without Nostalgia, Keys To Imagination, Sand Dance, Song For Antarctica, Felitsa, To Take To Hold, So Long My Friend, To The One Who Knows, A Night To Remember, Farewell, or ANYTHING from great "TRIBUTE" album or even his decent "Ethnicity" album? Instead of that they put some obscure and mediocre tracks like Turn Of The Tide, Human Condition, Running Time, The End Of August, Butterfly Dance, Face In The Photograph etc.
Please spare me!!! So far they didn't make one decent compilation of Yanni's greatest work.

L'émerveillement est le premier pas vers le respect
I think that there are some good compilations The ones that I prefer are: "Devotion: the best of Yanni", in which you can find the songs "The End of August" and "Marching Season" from the concert at the Acropolis;"The Very Best of Yanni","Enraptured:A collection of Yanni favorites","Ultimate Yanni",and "Yanni- songs From The Heart" I have all of them (and many others..) and I really like them..
The new compilation "Essential Yanni" is interesting and I'm going to purchase it
myky, if I compile a compilation, will you pay me for it? Here it is.. only on 1 CD and it's called "the best of the best of the best of Yanni" Tracklist: 01. Paths On Water 02. Santorini (studio version) 03. One Man's Dream (studio version) 04. Keys To Imagination (studio version) 05. Tribute 06. Swept Away (studio version) 07. Within Attraction (studio version) 08. Someday 09. Song For Antarctica 10. So Long My Friend 11. Nightingale 12. Rites Of Passage 13. Nice To Meet You 14. To Take... To Hold 15. Nostalgia (studio version) 16. Standing In Motion (LAA version without Acroyali) 17. Farewell
You must admit it's best Yanni's compilation on 1 CD. If you don't agree, then I don't want to hang out with you anymore
For me, I don't think I could ever put my favorites on 1 or 2 or even 3 disks...for me Yanni's songs are like children...each one offers a very different but beautiful experience,loved deeply & unconditionally.
That's how I ended up owning so many of his CD's And I just picked up an old vinyl recently
