This is a best-of and a live album at the same time, combining great material from various points in the bands history. The recording quality varies from track to track but the performances are all killer. To me, many sound fuller and livlier than their studio equivalents. If you're a fan of Savoy Brown in all of its many incarnations, you'll enjoy this whole collection.

One of the best, but most under rated, British blues bands of the '60s and '70s was Savoy Brown. Kim Simmonds and his ever changing band produced some of the finest blues rock of the era. This recording is a welcome addition to my collection that runs from "Shake Down" to "Boogie Brothers". In my opinion the three best Savoy Brown recordings were "Street Corner Talking", "Hellbound Train", and "Lion's Share" and all three are represented here. The reason however for four stars, instead of five is the fact that Dave Walker is the vocalist on only two of the songs from those albums. The others are performed by the inferior John Lynton from the "Jack the Toad" version of the band. I would love to see a live album from the Dave Walker fronted version of Savoy Brown. He was, in my opinion, Savoy Brown's best vocalist. Yes, even better than Chris Youlden.

I'm sorry I cannot recommend this because of the recording quality on these discs. I love Savoy Brown and these live recordings are hot but... on some tracks the guitar gets reduced to an echo in the background. Maybe it is just the discs that I got, but on some other CDs of live music from the good old days I have experienced the same or at least similar defects. I assume it was the original recording at fault, you know how it was back then...in the fog. The tracks that are of high fidelity are terrific but the inconsistency is dissapointing. I guess if you enjoy the live feeling including fading in and out from the equipment or from personal consumption maybe the wayback experience can be fun.
