5.0 out of 5 stars Great Starting Place 27 May 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'I Fought The Law, The Best Of The Bobby Fuller Four', colourised picture on the cover. I really didn't think it would contain anything worthwhile apart from the title track but was pleasantly surprised. This really is a great compilation. I hadn't heard much by Bobby Fuller before buying this but it left me wanting to hear more.
Definate Buddy Holly influence but not just a sound-alike. Harder egde and more upto date sound than Holly. If Buddy had formed a 60's American garage band then it probably would have sounded something like this. If you're not a fan of Buddy Holly don't let my constant references to him put you off this excellent CD. Everyone has their influences: - Dylan / Woody Guthrie, Rolling Stones / Muddy Waters etc. In this case it's Bobby Fuller / Buddy Holly but it is only an influence not a tribute act. If like me you have a vague interest in Bobby Fuller this CD is probably the best starting point available. Great Stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars US 1960s Garage Rock At It's Best. 23 July 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many 1960s music fans will know the single I Fought The Law, as far as I am concerned a song rarely bettered by any artist of that time.
The drive and youthful playing aided by melodic guitars takes some beating.
The other 11 songs are not too far behind and there is a fun Radio Spot to round off this admitted short (under 29 minutes) collection.
I understand there are other CDs which go into far greater depth and after hearing this I can see why more committed fans have invested in them.

a good compilation from a sixties legend, also check out guitarman and song writer Sonny curtis on the original version 1959, He wrote the song and plays the great licks, available on the crickets , universal , and also bear family cd compilations, dont bother with dem london punk boys and their late seventies version they dont make first base compared to both these yankee bands, s,j, dundee

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bobby Fuller Four Live On 28 Mar 2001
By "coalmuseum" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The sound of West Texas in the '50's and '60's was a chapter in the history of rock and roll whose mark is indelible. The magic of the time, the geography, and the culture will never again be duplicated. Like the Caribbean breeds hurricanes, West Texas bred rock and roll. The first storm was Buddy Holly and the Crickets and the last was the Bobby Fuller Four (BF4).
The "boomers" remeber BF4 for their big hit, "I Fought The Law" that topped in 1966. Not long after, Bobby was tragically killed. The remaining three tried to carry on, but FOUR was the charm. They left an undiscovered trove of unreleased or locally released treasure for all of us to savor today.
BF4 recorded extensively by themselves and with Del-Fi. This Del-Fi album contains a nice fat chunk of their best studio recordings at Del-Fi. At least ten of these had national potential had fate not intervened. The music is not a remembrance or a memorial however - far from it. It is a celebration. You'll be singing and thumping, and dancing around the house no matter what kind of rock you like. The music here will make you happy and feel alive - exactly what rock and roll does best.
BF4 music drips with an electric sound tempered by full Fender chords, trashy leads, superb quavering vocals by Bobby with outstanding backup from the group, and is a unique and unforgettable rock sound - totally theirs. Music and lyrics are by Bobby and others and nearly every cut is original and unique.
Most "best of" albums are an "end" or a reflection. Not this one - it is a whole world of discovery for many. You'll want more BF4 and there is more out there - quite a lot. This album is like a big box of chocolates with several layers. After a taste or two, you'll be digging for more.
If you know about and like BF4 already, get yourself a copy of this CD to savor your favorites. Better - get a copy for a friend and they'll soon be just like you. No matter, anyone who listens will see why BF4 keeps making more and more people happy. Let Her Dance!

3.0 out of 5 stars All killer no filler, but missing several Fuller classics (3.5 stars) 17 Dec 2005
By TimothyFarrell22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Fuller was one of the 60's best rockers, possibly the heir to Buddy Holly. However, like Holly, his life was cut tragically short. This was due to a "suicide" that reeked of foul play. It's a shame that Fuller died so young, because he had cut several classic songs and was obviously headed for superstardom. His music itself is fantastic: emotional, catchy, and well-produced pop songs which will be stuck in your head for weeks. The songs on this compilation are all killer, no filler, but its way too skimpy. There are many songs which Fuller fans regard as classics, such as "The Magic Touch" and "Never To Be Forgotten", absent. It's a shame Rhino issued this instead of their fantastic "The Best of the Bobby Fuller Four" compilation from 1981. Track down a used copy of that (Rhino lets a lot of great samplers from their label go out of print), than move on to Norton Record's "El Paso Rock" series which are still in print, and "The Mustang Years". This sampler is simply too lean, not doing the genius of Fuller justice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough material... 26 Jun 2007
By PATRICK J. MCKENNA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I became a diehard loyalist of the Bobby Fuller Four a couple of years after Bobby Fuller's mysterious death (which, incidently was the subject of one episode of Unsolved Mysteries).

My collection of records (45RPM singles along with LP's, EP's, cassette tapes, VHS tapes, DVD's and CD's) includes just about every available commercial recording of the Bobby Fuller Four.

"I Fought the Law: The Best of the Bobby Fuller Four" is an excellent collection, but only introduction of Bobby Fuller's hard-rockin' music. For that reason, I can only give this collection a 3 star rating.

To appreciate the music of the BB4, one must check out both the stereo and mono recordings. The stereo recordings are clearly different from the mono recordings. The vocals are different and it wouldn't surprise me if some different musicians were also used.

As much as I prefer stereo (with the exception of those 4th rate artificial and fake "electronically rechannelled stereo," which is one of the biggest rip-offs pulled off by record companies), some of the mono recordings really kick the butt of some of the lame stereo versions.

For any real BB4 fan, I highly recommend the 3-CD collection: "Never to be Forgotten: the Mustang Years." This collection includes both the stereo and mono versions of many of the best recordings of the BB4. It also features a booklet which tells the story of the group, their performances and the strange case of Bobby's murder.

If you can't obtain "Never to be Forgotten: the Mustang Years," then "I Fought the Law: The Best of the Bobby Fuller Four" might be sufficient.

I wish that the proposed film about the story of Bobby Fuller made it off the ground, but unfortunately crashed before it reached flight. than

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing a few essentials 31 July 2002
By reechie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A "Best Of Bobby Fuller" collection that includes "Phantom Dragster" but leaves off "Never To Be Forgotten" is a little suspect, but the real selling point here is the original mono single mixes, including the rare early version of "Take My Word". Buy it for that reason, but you'll need much more to get the full picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific 21 Jun 2005
By Sound Cleanser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For confirmed Fullerites, this cd is a must since it contains different versions and mixes of some of Fuller's best music. The collection has many different Lp and 45 rpm mixes that are a treat to hear from the more common versions. Get this Del Fi cd.
