As the album title states, this is yet another collection of The Allman Brothers greatest songs. It is a must have for anyone looking for a great introduction to a legendary band.
A budget priced inroduction to The Allman Brothers Band

"'Legendary Hits' is a budget-priced compilation with tracks drawn from their Capricorn records heyday. Dont't expect indepth analysis or detailed sleeve notes because the input in this respect is non existant. However, its the music that talks and with the full length versions of 'Jessica','Stormy Monday' and 'Whipping Post' along with 'Midnight Rider' and 'Statesboro Blues', it covers the diverse sounds The Allman Brothers Band create from Blues/Rock to Country/Rock and back. For anybody wanting to dip their feet in the water and discover The Allman Brothers Band's unique style of Southern Rock without injuring their bank balance, 'Legendary Hits' is great music and great value for money.After this check out the UK compilation 'The Allman Brothers Band Collection'on Castle Music, thats excellent as well, and 'A Decade of Hits' and Mercury's expanded edition of 'The Road Goes On Forever'are worthwhile.Those are also excellent Allman Brothers Band collections from their first golden period."
Not enough Jessica

"I don't know about the CD version of this album, but on the tape cassette, the song "Jessica" is only 4:49 minutes long instead of the 7:05 version we all know and love. I'm not that big a fan of the Allman Brothers but I love this song -- it's the only reason I bought this tape, in fact. How disappointing to discover that it trails off to nothing after the second section. The rest of the tape is fine, however, with live versions of "Stormy Monday" and "Statesboro Blues." Note, however, that the CD version has a live version of "Hot 'Lanta" and the studio versio of "Trouble No More" neither of which appear on the cassette version."
