The best way to sum up Air Supply's "Greatest Hits Live: Now and Forever" is that this is not your regular live album. This album brings 10 of the best Air Supply songs performed live with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra. There are two studio songs: There is a new song called "The Way I Feel" and a remake of an earlier Air Supply classic "Now and Forever". The live songs are really the pieces that are going to fuel this album's strength. The live pieces were recorded in Taipei, Taiwan in 1995. Air Supply's days as a hit-making machine had long passed for about 12 years now. By 1995, the band still had a solid following (especially outside the U.S.), so by finally releasing a live album almost 20 years into their careers they had nothing to lose. This effort would help continue to keep the existing fan base happy, help some of the old fan base rediscover Air Supply, and harvest some new Air Supply fans.
