2 stars During those Airplaneless times, it might have been appropriate to release a compilation of this great American band. This one might be complementary to "Worst Of" but I'm not really sure.

When you see the track list you will notice that there are a lot of second choice numbers here. Of course some of their anthems are there like "White Rabbit", the dual "Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon" and "Volunteers". But lots are missing as well (even if a live version of "Somebody To Love" is featured here as well.

What we get as well several numbers from some Slick, Kaukonen etc. work : not essential really. I guess that this compilation was maybe intended to some Airplane fans that were not acquainted with the solo career of some members and therefore the rather hectic track listing.

This is not a bad release, but the commercial aspect behind it leaves me rather perplex. I recommend you to stick with "Worst Of" should you decide to get one album only from the Airplane. You'll get the essence of the band (you can maybe get a live album as well, "Live at the Monterey Festival" being then a good choice or "Live At The Golden Gate" recorded in May 69 just a few months before their fantastic Woodstock appearence and released in 2006 but not available yet for review).

Two stars.
