"Ultimate Ted" is a 2 CD collection of many of Nugent's best tracks. This is a pretty good collection, but focuses on a very limited period of his career (albeit his most successful), from 1975 to 1981. There is nothing from his Amboy Dukes years nor anything post "Intensities In 10 Cities". On the plus side most of what is represented is a great sampling of Ted at the peak of his powers. You get all the hits plus choice album cuts from his most successful period. The sound of the album is great, and for plain old brainless heavy rock, it does not get much better, although Ted's material does show a certain degree of "sameness" after a while. I do question why "Great White Buffalo" was left off though, especially when several other tracks from "Double Live Gonzo" are included. "Buffalo" should be a part of this collection. Latter day hits like "Little Miss Dangerous", "No No No", "Fred Bear" and others are not represented either. Ted could really use a "Ultimate Collection II" to cover the 30 plus years of his career not covered in this collection. All that being said, this is currently the best Ted compilation out there, so if you want an overview, this is the one to get until a sequel or box set is put together.

Get your "Ted-mojo" satisfied right here, right now.
Ted was one of the best 70's hard rock musicians and this set is testament to that fact, jack! The remastering is superb. The song selection concentrates on his best albums. This blows away the old 2 cd box set "Outta Control". If most of your Nugent collection is dusting away on lp...this is the place to start. Grab your old air guitar out of the closet and get ready to jam.
"Got you in a stranglehold baby, gonna crush you face"....classic!

Okay, here's the deal; Ted Nugent IS a one trick Pony. However, it was one hell of a trick in his heyday and this set covers exactly that. Maybe they could have compiled one more disc for the next 30 or so years but I really don't see why. Ride this one trick pony when he was young and in his prime!!!!

I thought the $25 price for a cd these days seemed steep. But, if you're a true metal head, and love the Nug, you have to have this CD. Every cut on this 2 disc set, ROCKS THE HOUSE!!! Don't stop. Buy it. You won't be disappointed. Wish I were getting a kick back for this review. I'd be rich.

The two CD compilation The Ultimate Ted Nugent released by Sony in 2002, is essentially a collection of 32 of the "best" songs from Nugent's recordings on Epic Records, during his most commercially successful period from 1975 through 1981.

The song selection heavily favors Nugent's first three solo records, with seven songs from Ted Nugent (1975), six from Free for All (1976), and six from Cat Scratch Fever (1977). There are three songs from Weekend Warriors (1978), four from State Of Shock (1979), and two each from Scream Dream (1980), and the live albums Double Live Gonzo! (1978), and Intensities of 10 Cities (1981).

Based on popularity, it's hard to argue too much with the songs selected from Nugent's studio albums, as many of them are classics. With about 136 minutes of content, the collection could have included a couple of more songs, particularly from Double Live Gonzo! which is perhaps slightly underrepresented.

The path of Ted Nugent from Detroit guitar slinging madman to consummate 70's rock showman to conservative redneck reality-show clown is one of rock's more interesting tales. As frontman for the Amboy Dukes (and nothing from them on this set), he established his rep as a guitarist with flash and style, and as soon as he went solo, his rep for unparalleled mayhem in concert soon pushed him to superstar status. Starting with Ted Nugent, he slung inventive riffs and a love for volume into songs that became Detroit legends. "Stranglehold" was the big airplay banger, for its fiery instrumental work.

The second album found Nugent struggling with his bandmates. A control freak and firmly anti-drugs, members of the Ted Nugent band were frequently on a revolving door. Free-for-All enlisted a then unknown Meat Loaf to do a great amount of the vocals. The classic riff-rockers "Dog Eat Dog" and the title track were the best things here. Derek St Holmes from the first album mended his ways with Nugent and agreed to come back for album number three.

That was Nugent's watershed moment. Cat Scratch Fever was the tipping point, with a top 40 single and his highest charting studio album. It was also about now that Nugent was slipping into his Loincloth phase, shooting flaming arrows into his stage props and entering the stage on a swinging rope.
