4.0 out of 5 stars A classic, but needs an update December 26, 2007
By A Fan
Format:Audio CD
Contains all their big hits, but none of their later material. It was a straight re-issue of the 1968 LP, which was pretty much the norm in the early days of CD's. But this excellent set is long over due for an update, including remastering. Add another 5 or 6 songs from their later albums and it would be an easy 5 star CD. As is it is very good. "Everything That Touches You" is one of the best love songs to come out of the 60's. "Windy" and "Cherish" are classics. Nobody sounded like the Association.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this "album" when it was first released in 1968 (at age 13), and recently purchased it again on cd. This compilation contains their best-known hits, plus a few other tracks that the casual Association fan may not have heard before. If you are the type of person who is only interested in hearing familiar songs, without exploring any deeper cuts, this probably is the cd for you. None of the songs are disappointing, and they give a good over-view of what The Association was capable of doing. However, it is a very "safe" collection of music, nothing being included but the absolutely most commercially successful songs. That being said, it is still worth the few dollars charged for it, in order to own some of the greatest music ever released by one band. If you want to dig deeper into The Association's music after hearing this cd without buying all of their old releases separately, I would then purchase Just The Right Sound-The Association Anthology. Whatever Association music you ultimately buy, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent compilation, inferior sound quality December 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This great collection covers 1966 through 1968, their most commercially successful period. It features the chart-toppers "Cherish" and "Windy" and the Top Ten hits "Along Comes Mary", "Never My Love" and "Everything That Touches You". "Requiem For The Masses" was a B-side and "Time For Livin'" was a Top Forty hit. The heavy sounding "Six Man Band" was also a single. The remaining tracks are album cuts.

Although there isn't a weak track here, I think a remastered version of this title is long overdue. The sound quality is such that one has to turn up the volume when you play it, especially "Enter The Young". Even so, this is an essential collection for anyone who loves great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Greatest Hits Package Out There! January 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
A word on "greatest hits" and "best of" compilations. As a youngster diving into Beatles albums and then Moody Blues, Mamas & Papas, and then getting corrupted by the San Francisco scene and British invasion acts, I started out pretty much as a born album-oriented rock and roll kid. Often I looked down my narrow-minded nose at greatest hits packages, after all they weren't really "albums" with a cohesiveness and integrity of their own. They were, for all intensive purposes compilations of individual songs which were popular singles from an artist, and they just didn't count, for me, as "albums". Ah the loftiness of our minds when we were young! However that is not to say that so-and-so's "Greatest Hits" and "Best Of" packages did not have their place. Some artists I enjoyed on the radio had albums which were hit and miss or where I liked them just enough to grab hold of a compilation when I didn't want to, or have the money to, go out and buy annual and semi-annual volumes that might or did end up falling short on the great expectations list. Steppenwolf and Three Dog Night were prime examples of artists whose greatest hits collections could outshine individual albums.

I was primarily into melodic and harmonious rock and roll during the years `66 -'69 so the multi-tracked vocals of the Beatles, the Moody Blues, and Mamas & Papas were huge on my list, however, there was another layered vocal group who consistently caught my ear on the radio during those years, and that was The Association. They captured all the harmonious pleasantry of my favorite three of '66 - '69 along with the slick production of the Beach Boys, the folksy intellect of Dylan, and the experimental edge of the San Francisco-based rock groups.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh, that's rich... April 22, 2005
By angelo
Format:Audio CD
Sure, just take the old Greatest Hits, put it in a cardboard slipcase, and charge a dollar more for it. Right, where do I sign up? I guess Am@zon didn't notice that they're selling this same disc without the slipcase for a dollar less. And I guess Time Warner is hoping that by stamping the Rhino logo on the slipcase, people will be fooled into thinking the disc actually sounds good. This sort of thing would never have happened when Rhino was still an indy...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mellow Side of the Sixties June 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Musically, the Sixties are justly noted for classic songs in the surf, psychedelic, garage, folk, and British Invasion genres, but the Association managed to become one of the most-remembered bands of the decade with ballads and pop songs like "Cherish," "Windy," and "Never My Love." Six of their seven top 40 hits are included here, and this collection is very consistent--even the songs that did not chart are very good, so this would be a great purchase for those who are fans of this band.
