Excellent if not quite complete anthology,
This review is from: The Anthology (1977 - 1979) (Audio CD)
TRB at its best was one of the finest bands of its era, and this excellent compilation serves as a fitting tribute. Of particularly interest is the fantastic third live disc featuring two live shows recorded by the BBC - stellar stuff!
If I have one complaint - and it's the reason I've docked one star from my rating - it's that not everything is here. By way of example, a TRB compilation called 'Rest of the Best' (released shortly after the band split) rounded up several interesting oddities from the vaults, and a number of these tracks have missed the cut on this anthology. Similarly, TRB's live version of 'Waiting for My Man' (released on a PITD remaster from a few years ago) is similarly missing in action.
But it's difficult to gripe too much when what *is* here is so good :)
