Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The best reason to buy this CD is the newly-mixed stereo version of "Dirty Water." The track listing doesn't indicate it, but that last track is in stereo, and it sounds pretty good -- given that it was done almost 40 years after the song was first released.

Would that more record labels would provide both the mono hit single and stereo LP versions of songs on compilations like these. That helps cushion the blow of buying yet another CD that has 17 songs you already have on a dozen other CDs.

I'd put this Hip-O release ahead of the Rhino, if only for this reason. Alas, the Hip-O is out of print as of 2008, but still widely available used from several Amazon dealers.

Good overview of The Standells, featuring their 5 hits: "Dirty Water", "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White", "Why Pick on me", "Try It", and "Can't Help But Love You". Would have been nice to find "Rari", the B side of "Dirty Water" here, but the remaining tracks are well-picked aside from that ommission. "Did You Ever Have that Feeling" is particularly notable, with the sitar sound edging toward psychedelia. The stereo remix of "Dirty Water" is interesting even if the drums sound kinda tinny.

Very similar to the Rhino CD release titled 'The Best Of The Standells' (see my review). Total of seventeen tracks, only a few that I didn't recognize. Tunes like their sole charted hit "Dirty Water", their Leaves cover "Hey Joe", "Riot On Sunset Strip", the ass kicking should-have-been-a-hit rocker "Barracuda" among others are compiled on this disc for your listening enjoyment. I mean, I totally dig the Standells, but this CD is pretty much for die-hards OR fans that simply don't own any of their other compilations.
