This is a great collection from a great band (from my current home town, El Cerrito, CA). Every song on this CD is great rock, and killer riffs abound: "Down on the Corner", "Susie Q" (ok, so it wasn't their
song, so what? it's got a great riff), "Up Around The Bend", "Green River"... John's voice is great, and the band's playing is solid.
There are a couple of problems here, though. As has been mentioned, "Born On The Bayou", one of their bigger hits, has been ommited and put on "Chronicle II" (which isn't all that bad since that album, though with a heavier country touch to it, is still great stuff), and replaced with lesser-known material. The other problem here is that "Susie Q" has been split into two songs. Part one appears on this CD and is the "Susie Q" we all know and love. Part two appears on "Chronicle II" and is just more soloing and stuff. It's too bad that they couldn't find one place to join the two halves of the song. Other than that, it's great stuff.
