4.0 out of 5 stars JMJ Essential (another one), 25 Feb 2012
By 
This review is from: The Essential (Audio CD)
Those of us who follow JMJ, will realise this is not the first compilation to be called "Essential" in his career. This is always due to the record companies cashing in. I have all the other versions from 80's, and the variants (Images, Aero etc) from later on. To be honest what can a record company fit on a single "best of" album that will make everyone happy! Perhaps an artist in his 5th decade of solo studio and live recordings deserves at least double album with better coverage from those early 70's recordings right up to his recent live outings. Then perhaps a comprehensive box set covering this time, perhaps even some HD versions, but I guess as JMJ fans we are often disappointed with the various record companies output. This Essential is really no different, some of my favourites missing but for a person wanting to know what JMJ's music is all about it is a respectable mixture, covers some of the favourites and his more well-known tracks. There are some tracks that are really non-essential like Band In The Rain, but overall an acceptable starting point, but nothing new or interesting to the JMJ fan. 4 stars for another "introduction to" album.
