No Goodbyes is a 1977 collection by Hall & Oates. It is a "Best of" compilation of their first three Atlantic Records recordings. No Goodbyes was released after the duo left Atlantic and joined RCA Records, and after Atlantic had achieved a Top 10 hit with a re-release of "She's Gone" (included here). It contains three new songs: "Love You Like a Brother," "It's Uncanny," and "I Want to Know You for a Long Time." The latter two of these were later released on The Atlantic Collection. "It's Uncanny" was released as a single upon this album's release but failed to break the Billboard Top 40. "Love You Like a Brother" was re-released on the 2009 four-disc box set Do What You Want, Be What You Are, as was "It's Uncanny".
