"Well there is the expected "Fire" and "Dreamin", but who thought there would be a better version of "Satisfaction" than the original? Listen to Jose do it (he's having a ball), and if you are still not convinced of his genius ... well you need an ear tune up. Add to it the wonderful guitar versions of the two Beatle tunes, "Aint it Peculiar", and the Dylan tune, well you've got a mixed bag of writers that provide Jose a framework upon which to hang his genius. I don't know about you ... I can't get enough of this guy."
Far From Being The Definitive Greatest Hits Collection

"This CD is one more of the many Greatest Hits compilations they have of the great Jose Feliciano. Although its far from being the definitive collection of his Greatest Hits is still a great album. This set includes Jose's fantastic rendition of "Lay Lady Lay" a Bob Dylan composition which Dylan himself practically destroyed the song since his voice (I'm sorry to say this) but is awful and you can't hardly understand what he says yet Feliciano's treatment of the song is superb and brilliant as well as his superlative guitar playing. Another highlight is his beautiful and wonderful interpretation of "And I Love Her", Jose's playing is so soft and mellow its quite inspiring. This CD also includes a terrific version of "Ain't That Peculiar" which Feliciano makes the song his very own, he has always had an increible gift for covering songs by other artists and making them sound even better than the original. The same thing goes for "Border Song" which was a hit for Elton John in 1971 and again Jose's version sounds even better than Elton's. The same thing came be said for his take on "Satisfaction" a Rolling Stones classic and in this version Jose sounds like he is having a ball because he even laughs a little bit in the middle of the song and it's quite funny. Ofcourse Jose's signature tune "Light My Fire" is included in this CD and what can I say about it only that he recorded in 1968 and the rest is history. This is a great album for the person who is just beginning to discover Jose Feliciano's amazing talent as a singer and guitarist he has been and always will a brilliant aritst. For those of you who after listening to this album are still not convinced of his genius well than, you need a major ear tune-up."
