Greatest Hits Album
A GREATEST HITS ALBUM, sometimes called a "BEST OF" ALBUM or a CATALOG ALBUM, is a compilation of songs by a particular artist or band . Most often the track list contains previously released recordings with a high degree of notability. However, to increase the appeal, especially to people who already own the original release, it is common to include remixes or alternate takes of popular songs; sometimes even new material (previously unreleased) will function as bonus tracks. At times, a greatest hits compilation is the original album release for songs that have themselves been released as a single and charted successfully. Many of these albums surface despite the unwillingness of original artists to support them, the songwriters being embroiled in fighting record company decisions

Concept Albums
A CONCEPT ALBUM is an album in which its tracks hold a larger purpose or meaning collectively than they do individually. This is typically achieved through a single central narrative or theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, or lyrical. Sometimes the term is referenced to albums considered to be of "uniform excellence" rather than an LP with an explicit musical or lyrical motif. The exact criterion for a "concept album" varies, with no discernible consensus. The format originates with folk singer Woody Guthrie
Woody Guthrie
