All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
The Band was a very album-oriented group, and only had two Top 40 hit singles. So one could argue that a single-disc greatest hits compilation, or best-of anthology as this might more properly be called, is not the optimum way to dig into their repertoire. But if you're limiting yourself to one Band collection and your budget or patience does not stretch for the two-CD To Kingdom Come set, this 18-song program hits all the famous buttons, including "The Weight," "Chest Fever," "Up on Cripple Creek," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "The Shape I'm In," "Stage Fright," and "When I Paint My Masterpiece." Naturally, it leans most heavily on their first two albums, ...

Naturally, it leans most heavily on their first two albums, which supply four songs each. Good, lengthy liner notes by Rob Bowman are a nice bonus, considering that single-disc career-spanning overviews often dispense with such frills. Strange, though, that "Don't Do It," their one Top 40 hit single other than "Up on Cripple Creek," isn't here; in fact, there's nothing from their live Rock of Ages.

    Only Scratches the Surface

    Big Pink and The Band were two of the finest albums ever made. Since almost half of this collection is drawn from them. you would be well advised to buy them instead of this very good but shallow Band collection. Another suggestion would be to purchase the Rock of Ages live set. With the added bonus CD, it has many of their best early songs on it and serves as a fine sampler of the group. I think the out of print two LP Anthology was better selected than this set. The last cut, The Saga Of Pepote Rouge, could have been replaced by Don't Do It to make a better cross section of their work. Still, at this low price, this CD is a good primer for those with no knowledge of this seminal group.
