Just trying to do the math

How does a pop group which released 12 studio albums manage to issue 20 compilations?

Usually it's one compilation give twenty different covers.

You know, the EMI strategy.

More perplexing is the sight of albums entitled X: Greatest Hits, when X is one of those musicians of ephemeral popularity who got at best three top forty songs. One wonders who chose, and how, the remaining seven or nine songs.
Christopher Cross, for example.

This wasn't the group which inspired the post, but . . . .

One of my greatest surprises (on these lines) was (a) on seeing any "greatest hits" album for Asia, but then (b) finding that it was a 2-CD set.
