The best Best-of Albums, if U need something representative

A Listmania! list by Moz "The Madhatter" (Birmingham England)
 
2400 Fulton St
1.  2400 Fulton St by Jefferson Airplane
The list author says:
  "Who said compilations don't work - the good ones are brilliant and this is the best. Airplane were a band that defined flower power, so disappointing that they mutated into the unbearable Starship."
£29.61   Used & New from: £6.59
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Should God Forget: A Retrospective
2.  Should God Forget: A Retrospective by The Psychedelic Furs
The list author says:
  "Maybe the ultimate compilation from the country's most under exposed band. So much more than "Pretty in Pink""
£35.62   Used & New from: £4.07
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Greatest Hits
3.  Greatest Hits by Lynyrd Skynyrd
The list author says:
  "Deep South drawling whiskey soaked blues rock. Ballsy, immediate and in your face (mostly)"
£11.74   Used & New from: £1.67
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

The Best Of Eric Burdon & War
4.  The Best Of Eric Burdon & War by Eric Burdon
The list author says:
  "Solid Blues with Brass & Harp. Late night afterhours mellow. Eric was great but patchy so the good stuff's excellent, although, I must admit, there's songs here I'd have left off in favour of others."
Used & New from: £18.43
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

The Very Best Of The Stone Roses
6.  The Very Best Of The Stone Roses by The Stone Roses
The list author says:
  "Okay, so there's not a great body of work from which to select a best-of but this benefits from all having being recorded over a short period of time."
£6.93   Used & New from: £1.14
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews)

Relics
7.  Relics by Pink Floyd
The list author says:

£20.61   Used & New from: £12.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Nothing Safe - The Best Of The Box
8.  Nothing Safe - The Best Of The Box by Alice In Chains

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

The Best of The Doors

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Greatest Stiffs
10.  Greatest Stiffs by Wreckless Eric
The list author says:
  "A bit of pop-punk with some barroom wisdom lyrics. No intricate word-play or crafted guitar breaks. Dylan it ain't."
£3.99   Used & New from: £2.24
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Muddy Water Blues - A Tribute to Muddy Waters
11.  Muddy Water Blues - A Tribute to Muddy Waters by Paul Rodgers

Morning Glory: The Tim Buckley Anthology
12.  Morning Glory: The Tim Buckley Anthology by Tim Buckley
The list author says:
  "Jeff  Buckley's one thing and if you listen to his old man you can see where it all comes from. Compare and contrast. Visionary stuff from an original talent."
£12.99   Used & New from: £1.51
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Gremlins Have Pictures
13.  Gremlins Have Pictures by Roky Erickson
The list author says:
  "Thought I'd throw ya a bit of a wide ball, & they don't come much wider than this. Strange edgy psychotic music and Roky ain't pretending. It's the real deal and a great compilation. Be very afraid!"
£23.79   Used & New from: £15.00
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Living In The Past
14.  Living In The Past by Jethro Tull
The list author says:
  "Another bit of nostalgia (or is it naustalgia) which was cheap and disposable but I thought it was great when I heard it. A lot more stuff here than I remembered but no big surprise there."
£7.82   Used & New from: £3.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

The Modern Lovers
15.  The Modern Lovers by The Modern Lovers
The list author says:
  "I only bought this 'cause they're sited as an influence on a lot of  bands I like. There's some great observational sardonic stuff here. Sharp, witty lyrics. Not big on the music side but great humour"
Used & New from: £15.00
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Lost Dogs
16.  Lost Dogs by Pearl Jam
The list author says:

£9.21   Used & New from: £6.98
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

The Best Of Jimmy Cliff
17.  The Best Of Jimmy Cliff by Jimmy Cliff
The list author says:
  "I'm not a big reggae fan but I went to a great blues party many years ago now (pre-Marley) and all I remember being played was Desmond Dekker & Jimmy Cliff. A good compilation for us periferal fans."
£6.40   Used & New from: £2.91
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Greatest Hits
18.  Greatest Hits by Thin Lizzy
The list author says:
  "Everyone should have some Thin Lizzy. Okay, best seen live - no longer an option but there are some great Tribute bands out there. Stick it in the car stereo on a long drive. It makes the time fly by."
Used & New from: £2.95

Mother Love Bone
19.  Mother Love Bone by Mother Love Bone
The list author says:
  "Well there wasn't too much Mother Love Bone thanks to the untimely death of Andrew Wood - most of it's here. This is the forerunner to Pearl Jam and Grunge. It really sets the tone and the standard."
£8.66   Used & New from: £5.51
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

The Collection
20.  The Collection by Steppenwolf
The list author says:

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Retrospective: The Best of Buffalo Springfield
21.  Retrospective: The Best of Buffalo Springfield by Buffalo Springfield
The list author says:
  "I bought this just for "For What it's Worth", which I'd been looking for for ages thinking it was called "What's that Sound", a Stephen Stills classic. I was well rewarded, a nice collection."
£6.71   Used & New from: £2.46
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Kinks Very Best of
22.  Kinks Very Best of by The Kinks

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Hits
