Three Dog Night did one very smart thing back in their time...they went back in and reworked several of their songs for the radio...sometimes strikingly different versions of the tunes from their album counterparts...but the results were always very radio-friendly, punched-up versions that took what were all great songs to begin with and catapulted them to a whole new level...the added guitar break in Joy to the World, the tighter and shorter version of Liar, the extra vocal bridge near the end of Old Fashioned Love Song, even the few seconds of added piano at the end of Eli's Coming...al very noticeable touches that made these songs just explode out of the radio back in their day. The fact that they all STILL sound fresh today speaks volumes and shows that this was not only a very excellent live band (the harmonies are STILL razor sharp, if you don't believe me, go see them when they come to your area) but a very smart band (and production team) that knew what would make these songs hits, and there's absolutely not a thing in the world wrong with that...they picked great songs from great writers and did great arrangements of them all (kind of sounds to me like someone else's master plan back in 1966 when that group got their own TV series, and their stable of writers was no B-list either). If you have the 14-track Best of Three Dog Night with the album versions of all the hits, then you need to hear this collection, compare and contrast. I guarantee you this one will be the collection that sticks in your ears!

Ok, the mono versions of these songs, and I say VERSIONS not mixes because vocals and instrument tracks were often re-recorded for the singles, are great to have on one CD. The mono singles included on this disc are way superior to the LP versions, which were often rather muddy stereo mixes. Chuck Negron himself told me that, like The Beatles, the group was present and involved with the mono mixes, leaving the stereo versions to the engineers.
So, these are the singles, as the group intended, and the way we heard them on AM radio in the 70's.
And come on, the LP version of "The Show Must Go On" has that vomit inducing ending that NEVER ENDS! I can do without that, thank you.
Don't knock MONO. Every pre-1970 Motown single is definitive in mono, as are all the Beatles and Stones singles. "Pet Sounds?" 'Nuff said!!

I have both 'The Best of 3 Dog Night' and this new collection. Whilst I'm not thrilled that Geffen did not specify which tracks are in mono, it really doesn't matter. The sound is excellent. I listened to both versions of "Joy to the World" and the results are... stereo version, hissy; mono version, no hiss and more propulsive. People tend to get their shorts in a bind when they hear the word "mono", but when it's done right (such as Phil Spector's productions and Motown 45s), the results can be explosive. And that's what the mono versions on this set are. You have to remember back in the 70s lots of music was still being played on AM and singles were still being recorded in mono for the format.
Erick Labson should be given some sort of award for his remastering job. He brings such a warmth to the sound and pulls out insturments you never knew were there; just listen to "Liar". It's a revelation. We've heard these songs for years, but as I played the disc I felt like I was listening to them for the first time.
What we have here is the definitive one disc compilation of 3 Dog Night. The songs are listed in chronological order, there's a nice essay, and ample credits. Lyrics would have been nice, but hey, we all know the words.
So, don't be afraid of a little mono. Toss out your copy of 'The Best of 3 Dog Night' and pick up this one. You will be glad you did.

I am confused here, this is NOT really all the singles but it is not the complete original singles either! I collect this band and here is skinny on it.Don't get me wrong, Love Three Dog Nights music, anyway, here we go;

1. One (Not the original version which is mono)
2. Try A Little Tenderness (original mono single version)
3. Easy To Be Hard (well, single was in mono) this is stereo
5. Celebrate (Same time but single was a mono mix)
6. Mama Told Me (Not To Come)(not the original version on a single / edit and mono)
7. Out In The Country (Ok)
8. One Man Band" (Ok)
9. Joy To the World (Ok) mono version from single
10. Liar Ok it is the original mono version)The stereo best ofs are NOT this edit.
11. An Old fashioned Love Song (Ok I have this in mono/stereo on 45)Added coda in the single version.
12. Never Been To Spain (ok but mono on 45 and not that there is a big difference)
13. The Family Of Man (Ok)
14. Black & White (Ok but drop out right before the vocal)
15. Pieces Of April (Ok)
16. Shambala (Ok) always a mono mix (stereo LP was fake stereo)
17. Let Me Serenade You (Ok)
18. The Show Must Go On (Ok)
19. Sure As I'm Sittin' Here (It was edited on the single)THIS has the toilet flush towards the end.
20. Play Something Sweet (Brickyard Blues)(this was mono and a edit)
21. Til The World Ends (Ok)

So basically 13 tracks out of the 21 are the real single versions & love the album even though I have made myself one with the originals single versions on a CD. So give this a 3 out of 5 because they basically used the same tracks from the "Celebrate" collection which is better then this collection.
