Why? Well, they were sort of a precursor of the boy bands - multiple-part harmony, performing songs written by others, became an easy listening (cough) err.... adult contemporary act near the end of their run, and were a hit machine.
When I saw this collection, The Best Of Three Dog Night at the local Coconuts for half price, I snapped it up, hoping it would be good. I don't have any other CDs by this band; my LPs (I think I have 4 or 5 of theirs and several hundred others) languish in the basement waiting for me to get a decent turntable and find a place for it.
They were a pleasure: my first album, my first rock concert (8th grade, circa 1968-1969 at the Northbrook (IL) Ice Arena), my first good argument with my parents about music, etc.
My parents saw the cover from one of their albums and announced that I shouldn't listen to them because they had long hair and a decadent lifestyle. Of course, they said nothing about my musical idol a few years later, Charlie Parker, who died of old age at 35 after a brilliant musical career and an even more prodigious career as a substance abuser. Well, my parents weren't going to tell ME what to do. I listened to the albums a lot.
Back to TDN. Their lead singers could really belt it out - singly and together. They had a very competent supporting band of keyboards, guitar, bass and drums and were well-produced and well-recorded.

There's nothing wrong with the music here--what little there is of it. This CD earns its one-star rating for being a random selection of HALF of Three Dog Night's hits, thrown together as quickly and as cheaply as possible in a crass attempt to cash in on the "millennium" craze. If you want a single-disc collection of Three Dog Night's hits, pick up the similarly-titled "Best of Three Dog Night" (the one with three colorized close-up photos against a white background) instead. For just a couple of dollars more, you'll get all of TDN's hits except "'Til The World Ends."

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAME on December 30, 2004
Format: Audio CD
This compilation provides a fair selection of hits by this remarkable band whose heyday was from 1969 till the middle 1970s. It opens with their anthemic hit from 1971, Joy To The World, and concludes with the magnificent track The Show Must Go On (1973) that was written by UK artist Leo Sayer who had a hit with it in the UK.

The best songs are Black and White, a cover of a song that was originally a hit for the reggae band Greyhound in the UK, the wonderfully atmospheric Mama Told Me Not To Come (a brilliant portrayal of a 1970s party) and the buoyant Celebrate. I don't much like Three Dog Night's Middle of the Road balladeering as in Old Fashioned Love Song or Never Been To Spain, although these did well on the charts.

Much better tracks to include would have been the catchy Family Of Man, similar to Black And White in its reggae rhythm, and the sensitive and beautiful Pieces Of April. This CD is not comprehensive but there are many Three Dog Night collections available for the completists. It still showcases a band of great versatility that made a substantial contribution to melodic rock and pop in the 1970s.

I've been collecting these "20th Century Masters" collections since their debut in 1999 and over all they're a decent overview of each artist's career, but if an artist or group had more than ten hits(or recorded for multiple labels besides one under the Universal umbrella), than these discs can come up missing a few songs. Three Dog Night, for example, had 21 top 40 singles(on the ABC/Dunhill label) from 1969-1974 but only 12 of them could be included on this budget-priced "best-of". So no room for "Family of Man", "Out In the Country" or "Pieces of April" and other lower-charting singles. For only a few dollars more I'd recomend the just-released "Complete Hit Singles" collection that includes all 21 of their greatest hits on one disc(plus a great booklet with liner notes and photos).

20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Three Dog Night is a CD that purports to give us the best of Three Dog Night. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Twelve or eleven tracks just can't do them justice here; and that's a disappointment. On the bright side, however, what few tracks we do get is high quality.

The CD starts off with Three Dog Night performing their relentlessly upbeat tune entitled "Joy To The World." Their awesome rendition of this older tune rocks and really sounds great when they sing and play this! The electric guitars work very well and this is a strong opening number. "Shambala" is a groovy tune that has a slightly folk rock flavor to it as they sing of a special place named Shambala. Awesome! This song has a great deal to do with finding inner peace and achieving a better quality of life.

"Black And White" addresses racism as an evil and Three Dog Night really belts this out! The drums, percussion, and more enhance the natural beauty of the number; and the band never misses a single beat! "Black And White" is truly a very special song.

"Mama Told Me (Not To Come)" is a highlight of this album; Three Dog Night does this with all their heart and soul; they sound great and you can tell they're enjoying doing this number. "Never Been To Spain" is a soulful ballad that seems to mix folk with harder rock and it all works very well. "Never Been To Spain" is a classic, timeless hit from Three Dog Night.

"Easy To Be Hard" is a cover of a song from Hair; and Three Dog Night delivers this with great sensitivity and a lot of style. They play this well and the guitars again really carry the melody along with the drums and percussion.
