"I, on the other hand, found this album to be not-too-helpful. I AM a harsh grader, but The Best Of the Bird is made up of un-labeled takes at clubs. In other words: THIS IS NOT IN THE OMNIBOOK. For Improvers looking for bird to learn from, find another. If you don't care about that, and just want a cheap CD of the Genius of Parker, get it. It's 5 bucks."

"Daddy O...Come on five bucks is a nickel bag of tea this is the greatest album I own. Essential to any lover of music and art. Buy this album!!! I will personally refund your money if you don't love it. This is what thought and expression are all about winding around themselves and screaming at the dawn in a hoodoo chant. This is the sound of love in one man's shedding of his own skin...Bird the ticking time bomb veins pumping junk and peace. Be....with this album. It is the best"
