5.0 out of 5 stars the penultimate best of January 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Crusaders fan for almost 30 years and this compilation is a must-have (to wax trite) for anyone who wishes to hear the essence of this band. While the members have changed, albeit slightly, the soul of this band has never changed and this three-CD set is worth every penny (i was fortunate in that i got mine when I pledged money to my local National Public Radio, but it was well worth the pledge!).

From the first blast of horn on "The Young Rabbits" to "So Far Away" to Randy Crawford's marvelous vocals on "Street Life," this presentation should be in any music afficienando's collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection July 29, 2004
By dhip
Format:Audio CD
The Crusaders were so consistent over the years and that is what makes this collection superior. The only alternative is to get all their recordings but there are many over 30 years. If you want one Crusaders offering this a no brainer.
All the tracks are great. Amazing for a 3 CD collection. And it represents their different phases well.
The only tracks I would have liked to have seen in addition are "Soul Shadows" and the live version of "So Far Away".

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 CD's worth of gold treasure. March 6, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is out of print but you can get it really cheap used like I did. Totally worth it.

I prefer this over the Gold collection and the 4 CD box set its very pricey so I got this instead and was not disappointed at all. This collection unlike the Gold collection and like the box set covers part of the early years of The Jazz Crusaders and not just the Steely Dan-like R&B Funk Jazz they became famous for in the 70's.

Lots of classics here including Spiral, The Ballad of Joe Louis, Night Crawler, and handfuls of others.
