Format: Audio CD
The title implies that this is the best of Shadowfax. And indeed it is a good collection from their earlier years on the Windham Hill label. As always, there are tracks that I would like to see (like "Above the Wailing Wall" from "Dreams of Children")that are left off, but still the tracks chosen represent a sampling of one of the best Fusion/Jazz/World/Rock bands to come along. Unfortunately, their best work in my opinion was on other labels. Even sadder that it looks like the amazing "Folksongs for a Nuclear Village" and "The Odd Get Even" are out of print! By all means, find them if you can. The harder World Beat/Jazz Fusion edge on these releases and the strong interplay between G.E.(Stinson), Charlie Bisharat and Chuck Greenberg are stellar, not to mention the excellent world percussion, bass and keyboard work. Nice of Windham Hill to provide us with their "Best Of", but a true best of will include tracks from their entire career. Even so, the music on this one still gets 4 stars.

These customer reviews tend to review the band rather than any given release ... and this page doesn't even list what songs are included, so here they are (numbers indicate which album the song is from):

1. Angel's Flight (1)
2. Vajra (1)
3. Another Country (3)
4. The Dreams of Children (3)
5. Shaman Song (3)
6. A Thousand Teardrops (1)
7. New Electric India (2)
8. Shadowdance (2)
9. Brown Rice/Karmapa Chenno (2)
10. What Goes Around (4)
11. The Orangutan Gang (Strikes Back) (4)
12. Road to Hanna (4)

(1) SHADOWFAX - 1982
(2) SHADOWDANCE - 1983
(3) THE DREAMS OF CHILDREN - 1984
(4) TOO FAR TO WHISPER - 1986

Showing typical music-industry logic since BMG bought the label, this equally advertises Shadowfax's four Windham Hill albums, and none of their non-WH albums. The songs selected are largely the most "essential" from each of those albums, ignoring the fact that the first WH album isn't stylistically a real Shadowfax album, and then choosing songs from the 3rd and 4th albums which do not stray from the stylistic center established by the second album.

For a general overview, this is a fair if not very adventurous sampling; about half are indeed among their best, the rest very good to some just OK. What's missing here? "Ariki" is more interesting from the first album than "Vajra" or "Angel's Flight"; "Song For My Brother" and "Watercourse Way" from SHADOWDANCE are more adventurous, "The Big Song" and "Above the Wailing Wall" from DREAMS OF CHILDREN are more dramatic, and "Ritual" and "Maceo" (among others) from TOO FAR TO WHISPER are more diverse -- and all of them age better than those two (or "Shaman Song", which strangely appears on both Shadowfax anthologies).

Format: Audio CD
The folly of 'best ofs' is that something is inevitably left out. This one doesn't do too bad on that account, as it captures some of their most memorable tracks from across 4 CD's. This CD is a great starting point - and I know you will get all their stuff after a listen or 2! As usual, a few duds that should have been replaced with better tracks, but overall a fairly good snapshot of one of the best new age bands EVER.

four and 1/2 stars. I love this band and grew up listening to Shadowdance. No other band sounds like this band. You would never confuse Shadowfax with anyone else, they are that distinctive. It's a whole new headspace. Chuck's death in 1995 was heartbreaking to me as I was hoping to see them play live but never got the chance. This is a solid collection with great tracks from their earlier work. As the previous reviewer noted, it does not contain important material from their later releases (this album used to be called "Shadowfax A Windham Hill Retrospective") but even so all the tracks on it are solid. If you like this I'd recommend picking up Shadowdance and The Dreams of Children.

Probably the best of the 70's-80's fusion bands. What a great time for music then, when virtuosity rose from the ashes. Shadowfax stood out from the rest with the most dream-like quality. I listen to this CD over and over, cranking up the Orangutan Gang every time.
RIP Mr. Greenburg, you were taken way too young.

I purchased this as a gift. It was warmly received, as I anticipated. I have had to replace my copy twice because my kids "borowed" them , and I never got them back.

One of my favorite groups for years. A totally unique jazz group that doesn't even remotely sound like any other.

This is a great "best of" CD in that it gives you a really good indication of what ShadowFax is all about. This was my first introduction to them and I was not disappointed!
