This is a great album to introduce people to the velevet underground and the music of lou reed .It shows the range of vu music and also shows how important they were to the progress of music .This album should make you want to go and buy other velevet underground albums like loaded and hear a better version of sweet jane and some of the classics that are not on this album like i found a reason ,sweet nothin ,herion and many others .A good buy ,but to any true VU fan i would recommend buying the albums instead .

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 28 Mar 2005
Format: Audio CD
This collection is heavily slanted to the career of Lou Reed. It contains only three songs from the magnificent first album: Sunday Morning, Waiting For The Man and Venus In Furs. Pale Blue Eyes, from the third album, still stands out as one of the most poignant ballads in the whole history of rock music.
Tracks like Satellite Of Love, Vicious and Perfect Day form a sensible bridge between the VU stuff and Reed's later work. This goes for Walk On The Wild Side too, that wonderfully evocative story song. There is a powerful live version of White Light White Heat and some catchy pop like Sally Can't Dance from the 1970s and the propulsive I Love You Suzanne from the 80s. The collection also includes the melancholy Berlin from the album of the same name.
Although I find this compilation quite enjoyable, I doubt whether VU fans will really consider it a proper Best Of. With so few of the seminal tracks of the Velvets and a rather perfunctory list of Reed's work, (only the Transformer album is well represented), this CD does not fully live up to its name. But if it's just about the music, you may appreciate this unusual selection. Just don't see it as fully representative of the work of either Reed or the Velvets.

Format: Audio CD
Released in 1997, this is the only commercial compilation release featuring material from the Velvet Underground and Lou Reed as a solo artist. The result is disappointing due to the material which is included. VU and Lou Reed have both produced fantastic music over the last 30 years, but the music selected to appeal to the first time listener does not do this. I'm waiting for my man, Venus in Furs and Beginning to see the Light mark VU recording hightlights. Sunday Morning,Candy Says (not sung by Reed)and Pale Blue Eyes are on the other hand rather dull and uninspiring. By the same token Vicious, Sweet Jane, Walk on the Wild Side and Berlin are also excellent records but Nowhere at all, I love You and How do you think it feels sound third rate out of the original album context. Best ignored - Buy the Velvet Underground and Nico and the Best of Lou Reed first.
