Don't even start complaining about what isn't on The Ultimate Rock 'N' Roll Collection, because it doesn't try to actually be an ultimate collection, so it shouldn't be treated as one. Instead, the double-disc set rounds up 27 hard rock classics of album rock's heyday. Most of the tracks here date from the '70s, but there are a few '80s hits thrown in

Overview

Don't even start complaining about what isn't on The Ultimate Rock 'N' Roll Collection, because it doesn't try to actually be an ultimate collection, so it shouldn't be treated as one. Instead, the double-disc set rounds up 27 hard rock classics of album rock's heyday. Most of the tracks here date from the '70s, but there are a few '80s hits thrown in for good measure, as well. So who exactly is on The Ultimate Rock 'N' Roll Collection? Boston, Cheap Trick, Lou Reed, Golden Earring, Foghat, ELO, Yes, Ted Nugent, Ratt, Steppenwolf, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Cars, BTO, Santana, Alice Cooper, Quiet Riot, Bad Company, Eddie Money, and REO Speedwagon, among several others. Nearly every band is represented by one of their most popular tracks and the album sounds just like cruising along to album oriented radio in its prime. So, no, The Ultimate Rock 'N' Roll Collection is not a definitive rock & roll collection, but it does capture the sound of sleek, radio-ready hard rock quite well.
