Great music, but...

"...this CD is *way* out of date! While it has a few EXCELLENT songs, keep in mind that Spirit's catalogue consists of basically four albums, all of which are budget priced. If you're in the mood for a hits collection, Time Circle's a much better buy.So hah!"
Pieces that stand the test of time.

"This is a collection of hits of the underground group of the 60's & 70's that successfully survives the test of time. One listen to the cut I love the best, Fresh Garbage, can get you hooked (and the message is still needed TODAY!). Guitar and drum solos on most cuts point to the groups jazz leanings, but the messages and harmony are pure rock. Other cuts that have a wide appeal are "I Got a Line on You" and "Uncle Jack". The only disappointing aspect of this album is that it misses some of the versatility of the group that is evident on lesser cuts on other CDs. If you like a mix of jazz and rock with a message, try this one out."
A Brief "Best of" Album
Brian D. Rubendall | Oakton, VA | 02/03/2002

"At a mere 11 tracks, "The Best of Spirit" is a fairly slight effort. The band recorded one great album in "Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus" (1970), another decent one with their self-titled album (1968) and another great single in "I Got a Line on You." If you have all of that, you already own the best music Spirit recorded. "Twelve Dreams" is represented here by no less than five songs and "Spirit" chimes in with four more. I submit that purchasing either of those albums, or both, is a better buy than the "Best Of." Nevertheless, songs included on this album are a decent selction."
