Greatest Hits Of All Times
Remix '88

Originally Released:1988
Hansa 209 426-630

Greatest Hits Of All Times Remix was the first Remix album by Boney M, released in 1988. Simon Napier-Bell, the new manager of Boney M. manage to persuade the original 4 member to reunite and promote this release. PWL's Pete Hammond was employed to remix the hits of Boney M. to create new interest in the band, who had remixed many of the Stock Aitken Waterman stable's chart topping hits.

5 of the tracks on this album feature new vocals by Liz Mitchell, and some of the tracks on this release have not only been remixed, but re-arranged to create different versions of some of the tracks, for example Painter Man which features an instrumental at the end, and Hooray! Hooray! It's A Holiday which misses out the verse beginning "Well I'm game, time isn't here for wasting....".

The album spawned 3 single, Rivers Of Babylon (Remix '88), Rasputin (Remix '88) and Megamix, which appeared on the follow up album Greatest Hits of All Times Vol 2, Remix '89, and helped to create the first wave of Boney M. nostalgia throughout Europe. In France the album made it to #1 in the album charts.
