"I was extremely excited to learn that Hunter Thompson created a favorite mix cd...finally, the songs that fueled his ascent to literary greatness in the late 60's and early 70's! There are some inconsistencies and disappointments, as I learned after purchasing the cd...such as an incorrect track listing, a slightly incoherent, cocaine fueled introduction, and a saddening sense that the man couldn't age beyond the year of our great lord, 1975... but the minor snags are the ultimate for any Hunter S. Thompson fan...His favorite music!An inspirational hymnal! Warren Zevon said, "Jesus Marauding Christ! This is the hippest album in the world." He was Right. And so am I. This album is worth it, no matter the cost."

"I love this compilation. Not too many surprises. I feel it really works. My problem with the song book is the way they keep the CD in the book. It's all most impossible to not get the CD scratched up sliding it in and out of the stiff paper sleeve. The first thing I did was find another CD case to keep the CD in separate from the book.
I don't think I could part with this CD at any price but $300 is ridiculous."
Interesting, characteristically idiosyncratic selection

"This is one of the rarest and most sought after HST items, mainly because it hardly ever comes up for sale. Is it worth the exhorbitant price? Well, obviously not. This is not to deny that the musical selections are, of course, quirky and top quality (Reed, Dylan, live Jefferson Airplane, Hank Williams) and the biggest surprises are just how good the Mitchum and Howlin Wolf' tracks are. In other words, it is definitely worth having. But if you buy it, you'll have to see it as an investment too. This album is very expensive but its sheer scarcity will almost certainly ensure that it will be worth more than you paid for it in a few years time."
