Columbia on cover, spine & labels Family Productions on labels only. Printed on spine: F 85 Litho in Canada.

Once the songs from The Stranger arrive halfway through the first disc, there's no stopping the hits (although "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant," an album track from The Stranger, manages its way onto the collection). In fact, over the next disc and a half, there's so many hits, it's inevitable that some are left off to be specific, "Honesty," "Sometimes a Fantasy," "An Innocent Man," "Leave a Tender Moment," and "Keeping the Faith" aren't included.

Overall, Volume II is very mainstream against Volume I so that the variation is different from each other and also to avoid repetition which is a good thing. -Overview of The Greatest Hits Volume I & II--. There are some timeless classics on here that are full of emotion, guilt, loneliness and also upliftingness. There are so much variation that the repetitiveness is not even present.
