Of course, I don’t really need to say much here except awesome and holy mackerel these guys were great, and they had so many big songs! This 20-track UK import mix walks through their wonkier early stuff and rolls right on through the tunes you know best. For a band that only had four albums, there’s a ton of great stuff! You’ll also find covers, like Spoonful and a smokin’ live* version of Crossroads. It’s a mighty fine 1CD introduction/refresher of this psychedelic blues rock combo. Hot damn.
