Solid, but not the Perfect Compilation!,
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
This compilation could be the right investment for the buyer who wants only one CD by this band. Featuring their two best known tracks "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit" the CD is likely to satisfy the casual buyer.
Containing songs from all their 6 studio albums + a couple of live recordings it gives a pretty good general view of the band's recording career.
It will always be a matter of taste and a subject to discussion which specific tracks ought represent the various albums on a compilation CD.
I think most tracks are well chosen even though I miss great tracks like "Come Up the Years" (Takes Off), "My Best Friend" (Surrealistic Pillow), "Martha" (Baxter's) and "The Good Shepherd" (Volunteers)
The booklet of 8 pages is a complete disappointment; with sparse information on the tracks and only a very brief band biography.
