The Essential series are one-to-two disc compilations of an artist's extensive catalog. On occasion, albums in this series would have a limited edition third disc (Labeled Essential 3.0), or revised to include an artist's newer work (for example The Essential Bob Dylan). As of 2015, several volumes in the Essential series are also available on Vinyl LP.

Launched in 2009, Playlist is a series of single disc[1] compilation albums based on artists' best studio work during their time on one of the Sony labels (for example, the Van Morrison Playlist only contains tracks from the BANG Records sessions), serving as a successor to the previous Super Hits series and a cheaper alternative to the Essential series. A spinoff series, Setlist, features compilations of artists' live performances.

The first several albums come in a special Eco-packet and to save paper, a PDF file is included on the disc, containing photographs, credits, and liner notes.[2] This was met with criticism as the discs were easily scratched. Thus, in recent years, Playlist albums came packaged in standard, white-colored jewel cases.

Reception on the Playlist series varies between editions. See individual pages for more information.
