A great budget $ CD from SONY MUSIC SPECIAL PRODUCTS. This 10 track CD collects some of their best recordings from their Epic years and for under $10 (if you can still find it in print). This Hits CD offers 1984-Nature's Way & Fresh Garbage as great starters. Highly recommended to new fans of the band to get discover Spirit. Though 12 DREAMS... is considered their masterpiece... Get that also.

Spirit always struck me as a second tier band, but that really isn't a fair characterization. I've been trying for some time now to obtain a reasonably priced copy of their swan song 'Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus', rumored to be their best effort, but there are relatively few used copies around and apparently plenty of people looking for a chance to score one of them. To give the band a little preview, I opted for this bargain bin compilation, and pretty much got what I expected: a satisfying experience with the four better known tracks, and a more dismal outing with the remaining six tracks, although nothing here is objectionable, and some songs hold promise for 'growing on me'.

The tracks on 'I Got a Line On You' are drawn from four albums released by Spirit between 1968 and 1971. They are haphazardly mixed here, opening with the band's only Top 40 charting song, the title track, which reached number 25 in March of 1969. The song possesses a great lead guitar riff from Randy California (aka Randy Wolfe), with sharp vocals blended in. The song segues seamlessly into 'It Shall Be'. This second track possesses a sweet pulsing bass line with a cosmic flute hovering above. This intro also serves as the bridge between verses, which are somewhat less appealing. In fact, many of Spirit's songs, including the three that follow 'It Shall Be', as well as 'Uncle Jack' and 'Prelude: Nothin' To Hide' ("We got nothin' to hide, we're married to the same bride...") are somewhat challenged lyrically.

The first two tracks are drawn from Spirt's second release, 1969's 'The Family That Plays Together', while tracks three and four are found on the band's third effort, 1969's 'Clear'.

I was so surprised to see that Amazon offered any Spirit albums! Being a favorite group from the '60s, my LP was worn out a long time ago. It was great listening to this creative and talented group again. Think I will order more of their work soon.

What can I say, These Guys were my neighbors in Laguna Beach in the 60s. Until there house burned. I will always remember Randy as a super good guy who loved to play.
