A very common compilation name for a band is “The Best of” or “The Very Best of” – to me, these always seemed very clumsy namings, and “The Best of (bandname)” is better, and usually matches what is on the cover anyway.
What is the groupthink opinion on this?
I’m looking specifically at this edit:
The editor says to “see covers” but the cover does say “The Best of Tony Orlando & Dawn”, albeit in two lines and so one could consider the album title as just “The Best Of” and the artist credit separate.
A likewise conversation can be had about “Greatest Hits” – should it be just that, or is “Bandname’s Greatest Hits” a more appropriate album name.
