2 stars "The Worst Of" is a funny title. But I think the Mothers Of Invention had a "Worst Of The Mothers" a year before. You generally get the band's more well-known and accessible songs here. But there are two oddities here for a 'best of': "Embryonic Journey" and "Chushingura". The former is a short acoustic guitar instrumental, while the latter is a trippy sound effects piece.

Two of the best songs here are from the band's first album without Grace Slick: "It's No Secret" and "Blues From An Airplane". Of course you get the band's two most famous songs ("Somebody To Love", "White Rabbit"). Other highlights include "Lather" and "Good Shepherd". There are some 2-CD compilations that give you more of an idea of what this band sounded like. If you want to know why this band got added to PA, listen to their two albums After Bathing At Baxter's and Crown Of Creation.

This is some groovy music, but what you hear on those two albums is even groovier. A nice introduction but could have been better. 2 stars.
