3.0 out of 5 stars not sure yet, 25 Mar 2009
Have only listened to this twice so far, and not quite sure what to make of it.Have been a huge fan of this band since the outset, and of course they are never predictable, but whereas earlier flirtations with the crossover between rock/pop & dance/trance worked - especially on Slow Life from Phantom Power - not sure whether some of the tracks on this do, the exception being Cardiff In The Sun. Crazy Naked Girls, Inaugural Trams & The Very Best Of Neil Diamond certainly at this stage don't, for want of a better expression, cut it for me - too much of Neon Neon influence. But love, how can you not, Mt, Inconvenience (could be from RATW), Lliwau lacher (Mwng period) & White Socks/Flip… Read more

Neil has frequently said he hated the production on his eponymous debut & hearing the tracks from that on this CD you understand why. Stripped down to their basics - along with glorious acoustic versions of Buffalo Springfield's best - they sound so much better. As with Massey Hall, the release of which was jettisoned in favour of Harvest, this should be "Neil Young". Ok so it's one for purists/completists but with the exception of The Old Laughing Lady all of the tracks are better than what appeared on vinyl 40 years ago

what's the point of best of albums - particularly when they are not a single based band - see Frank Black.OK the artists choice is interesting but it is never what you would choose yourself. Fair enough if you can't be bothered to buy all their albums then get this - which at least means you are listening to decent stuff. But who has'nt got Deserter's Songs & if not why not ?? I love this band but please get all their albums !!!!
