Rock 'n Soul Part 1 (also titled Greatest Hits – Rock 'n Soul Part 1) is a greatest hits album by American musical duo Hall & Oates, credited as "Daryl Hall John Oates" on the album cover. Released by RCA Records in October 1983, the album featured mostly hit singles recorded by the duo and released by RCA, along with one single from the duo's period with Atlantic Records and two previously unreleased songs recorded earlier in the year: "Say It Isn't So" and "Adult Education".

The album was originally released on LP and cassette, with sides labeled "Side One" and "Side A",[2] and was the duo's first album to be released on the then-new compact disc format.[citation needed] In 2006, the album was re-released on CD by RCA and Legacy Recordings with two bonus tracks. On October 16, 2015 MoFi released the album on SACD but it doesn't include the bonus tracks of the 2006 CD.[3]

This compilation mostly features single versions of the songs.

Artwork and packaging[edit]

The cover of Rock 'n Soul Part 1 was illustrated by Nancy Dwyer with photography by Larry Williams and art direction, on the original release, by Jeb Brien, Dwyer and Ron Kellum; in the cover photo, the band members are dressed in the same costumes from the music video for "One on One." The original LP release also featured a limited edition twelve-month calendar for 1984 designed by Joe Telmach.[2] The 2006 CD release by RCA and Legacy with the reissue's art direction and design by Howard Fritzson and Bob Jones, respectively. The CD case featured four alternate album covers on the inlay with fold-out liner notes with a reproduction of the twelve-month calendar as well as "The Rock 'n Soul Part 1 Sessions" by bassist Tom "T-Bone" Wolk.[1]
