The fort baxter best of .........
the following is the review i've made on my web site about this release . I think this cd is really ok BUT ( a big BUT) there's only two new songs , the release of a "best of" is pure commercial legal record label logic , and worst : fort baxter has nothing more to release for us ? BUT (one more) , if you're not an hard core fan and still want to have an import cd , it's a great one .
the review :
i was very septic about this release . Fort Baxter is a great label with a lot of high quality releases , so why a "greatest hits" and not a new soundboard or a some hidden outtakes ? I play this cd just to realise it's almsot the "import" answer to the official 30 n°1 hits !!
The sound is really great and the choice of the songs is clever , you've got some pure diamonds from 1969 to 1977 .
I've hard some more or less bad critics about this cd , the sound, choice of the tracks etc... really , this cd is great ! A friend of mine has burned it to stick together the tracks and make a "complete" concert . Good idea , but i'm not sure it's not the feeling of this cd . each song has is details, mistakes, feelings .
you'll also find two unreleased live tracks “ Make The World Go Away “ and “ Something “ from the 1971 era . It's difficult to choose one highlight amongst those tracks , i particulary like the "return to sender" version .
If you have all the fort baxter releases , try to get this one by trade, if you're rookie about "import" (this term makes me laugh !!) cd : buy, trade, burn , steal it !!!!
