Awesome Southern Rock Collection

"Charlie Daniels is first and always a musician. Early in his career he was one of the top session musicians in Nashville playing on numerous albums, including Dylan's "Nashville Skyline". Starting with his quirky hit "Uneasy Rider" he began to play and sing his own music. One thing I always liked about Daniels is he never sold out his music. He played what he wanted to play, and if he received awards, great. If not, oh well. This boxed set includes a wide range of music, from Southern Rock to country, from pop to rock. One of my favorite two albums of his, "Fire on the Mountain" and "Saddle Tramp" are well represented here. The absolutely BEST song here is "No place to go" a live song from the first Volenteer Jam. This piece is about 12 minutes long and includes some of the best guitar work I've ever heard. Some of his hits that are included here are "The South's Going to do it Again", "Still in Saigon", and of course "The Devil went down to Georgia". But don't just listen to the hits. There is so much more here. "Saddle Tramp" is a wonderful 10 minute piece that has a great jam session on it, "Billy the Kid" is another first class rocker that gives the band a chance to let it loose, and "In America" recorded in the late 70's, is a great call for America to return to greatness. Disc 3 is probably my least favorite disc, and the reason I don't give this set a 5 star rating, but it does include a very interesting version of Clapton's "Layla"Overall, this is a great collection. If you want the definitive Charlie Daniels "Greatest Hits" collection then go no further than this box set. If your looking for just the hits then I recommend the earlier greatest hits package "A Decade of Hits""
This collection rocks the house!

"If you like great Southern fried music, pick this one up. Here, you have a sampling of every CDB album on Epic Records. I will caution you, though, that this music is addictive. This won't be the last CDB music you'll ever buy. I am a fanatic, so I have to have almost everything that Charlie ever recorded. This began when I seriously started to absorb this set. It's definitely worth the money. This also makes for a great autograph item, if you ever get a chance to meet Charlie. He's a good guy!"
A great collection

"I've been a big fan of The Charlie Daniels Band since first hearing "Caballo Diablo"(the first song on "Fire on the Mountain") way back in 1975.The way Charlie fused together so many types of music(rock, jazz, country, hillbilly and more) really struck a cord with me. This collection showcases all these influences again and again. Songs like The Allman Brothers-like "No Place To Go" and "Birmingham Blues" or country-rock songs like "Caballo Diablo" and "Billy The Kid" still hold up to this day, over thirty years later. This collection contains both big hits and "sleeper" songs that never made it on air. It is one of the better artist anthologies I have come across. It is a great box set for both the big fan and those that know Charlie only through the radio."
