Excellent gift- made for sharing. ;)

I think most people who buy these sets aren't expecting to have every one of their personal whims catered to. The title reads "greatest", but in reality it would be impossible to cater to every individual. I think this set offers a good mix- for all ages- of great rock music. Some songs are a bit more on the alternative/pop side of the rock spectrum, but they're decent nonetheless. There are bound to be some desirable and undesirable songs in sets like this. Thankfully for me, I enjoyed all the songs on offer.
I purchased this set for my Dad for Christmas, and he boasted about how much he enjoyed it on the way to and from work in the car. A few days later I went to work with him and we listened to it for an hour there and an hour back. It was brilliant, and features some of my favourites, along with great songs I haven't heard for ages. There were even a couple of obscure rarities in there.
1. Original Tracks
No reproductions or poor imitations here. These are the songs by the original artists.
2. Very good quality
The CDs do not skip, there's no crackling in the background, and it's crisp and rocking!
3. Good variety
One minute I'm jamming to some old favourites, and then there's a newer band, followed by a song I've never heard before but can't imagine why, because it's very good. Young or old, rock fans will find something they love in this set.
4. Value for money
There are a lot of songs, 3 CDs, each with dozens of tracks. For the price this is excellent.
Thanks for reading, and if you want to know anything else, ask and I'll try to find out.
