Overview

This is the single-CD successor to Creeque Alley, the double-disc career retrospective issued in the early '90s. All of the hits from "California Dreamin'" to "Dream a Little Dream of Me" are here, along with their more celebrated album tracks, and the notes by Joseph Laredo provide a decent overview of the group's formation and history. The records have been remastered yet again, although the level of improvement over Creeque Alley seems modest (Creeque Alley sounded really good) compared with that double disc's improvement over the earlier, wholly inadequate masters from the 1980s. For someone who doesn't have a lot of money to spend on the band, this is the place to start, superseding all other single-disc hits collections. [Not to be confused with earlier hits compilations, the catalog number on this 20-song collection is MCAD-11740.]
