This "greatest hits" album is available only in Asia.
The Philippine release contains two exclusive bonus tracks. "In A Lover's Eyes" is a special vocal version, performed by Ariel Rivera. The track is taken from Rivera's album entitled: "Getting To Know." The original piano-solo version is included on Jim's "By Heart" album. The second bonus track is a special live recording of "Rainbow Connection" in which Jim sings the vocals. The track was recorded in Manila during his concert there in October 1997. The version on this disc is different than the one included on the limited edition version of Jim's "Destiny" album.
The version of "By Heart" included on this album is different from the one included on current U.S. versions of Jim's "By Heart" album. The version included here is the original version, featuring just Jim Brickman and Laura Creamer. It was included on the initial versions of the "By Heart" album. Current U.S. versions of the "By Heart" album, though, include the radio version of the song, a faster re-recording with drum and guitar parts.
