How could I forget The John Prine Anthology, that’s the one I’ve been listening to - people come & go, music lives on - he was a gift, & RIP John

I posted years back B&P's for the Warner Brothers Loss Leaders series.

Some good and obscure stuff on those.

Wow those Nuggets disks look interesting. The Loss Leaders sound good too.

Funny in this era of deep catalog blitzkriegery how my go to compilations as a youngster were Hot Rocks, Worst of Jefferson Airplane, Skeletons From the Closet, and Duane Allman Anthology.

I personally prefer the San Francisco set. Music and packaging wise. I would recommend getting that one first.

Some of these are huge sellers. Eagles Greatest Hits is the second best selling album of all time behind Thriller by Michael Jackson. 29 million copies. The band wasn't consulted about the release and Don Henley, Glen Frey and Don Felder all criticized the song selection and order and Henley said it was the lable making millions off the band without investing in production costs. Of course the band member writers of the songs have made millions of dollars of additional income and did nothing for it.

Lynyrd Skynyrd has one that is actually their biggest selling release. 5 million copies with the biggest tracks from their first several albums. The band had dissolved when it was released after the plane crash. Record lable MCA cashing in!!

Polygram cashed in with the Allman Brothers in 1991 with 1969-1979 A Decade Of Hits. Over 2 million copies and millions for the lable that acquired the bankrupt Capricorn catalog and Gregg, Dickey and the other writers. Duane Allman's estate made money off Little Martha. It is the only release by the Allman Brothers to sell over a million copies since 1973's Brother and Sisters. Butch Trucks was pissed in the 90's about not making a dime off it while Dickey and Gregg cleaned up.

I guess my most recent compilation album I like is the live tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd. Warren Haynes is on a song and Gregg and the others do a fantastic version of Tuesdays Gone.

Here is Gregg Allman doing Tursdays Gone. Anyone know who the guitarist is? He is spot on with that SG.

Bob Marley's Legend is a good one. Only a single disc collection, but it feels like an actual album, not just a greatest hits album.

Yes, good call & I feel the same way about the Buffalo Springfield’s Retrospective album
Worst Of too somewhat - always liked how Volunteers followed We Can Be Together on that comp - the songs flow seamlessly

Flight Log is a much-overlooked Airplane comp

There are a bunch of great tracks on this one. It's Senegalese music with a strong Latin influence. https://analogafrica.bandcamp.com/album/senegal-70-sonic-gems-previously-un released-recordings-from-the-70s
The long jam in "Ayiro" might remind you of a section of "Back Where It All Begins" or something by the Dead," maybe.

Putumayo has a bunch of great world music compilations. My favorite might be "Mali to Memphis," which has songs by Rokia Traore, John Lee Hooker, Amadou & Miriam, Jesse Mae Hamphill, Muddy Waters and Taj Mahal.

I was in high school in the mid-90’s and they came out with two 2-disc Beatles compilations.

One was in red packaging, which was the early years.

The other was blue packaging, and was the later years.

I LOVED the blue set. Great start to a bit of a deeper dive into the band.

Thinking at least a double album. Have these from when I was amassing my record collection in the early '80s as an 11-14 year old (with older brothers). I got individual albums in addition to these later.

Neil Young - Decade
Rolling Stones - Hot Rocks 1964-1971
Skynyrd - Gold & Platinum
Beatles - 1967-1970
The Who - The Kid's are Alright
The Who - Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy
Bob Marley - Legend
The Kink Kronikles
CCR - Chronicle, Vol. 1
Heart - Greatest Hits/Live

And others.....

Stones had a bunch, Through The Past Darkly, Metamorphisis, The 2 xclnt Hot Rocks albums, Sucking in the 70s, 40 Licks, the newer Jump Back

Must also mention Boston Gets Stoned, a comp of Stones covers by various Boston area bands (mine is on cassette )

That is some comp right there nebish, the title made me think of the Stones ones (hadn’t known about Jump Back) - eclectic songs/bands, eclecticier cover ya, way cool

Maybe IPowrie is open for any kind of compilations but i was under the impression that he meant "various artists" compilations of a certain genre / theme. But i guess all recommendations are welcome!

What's Shakin', an Elektra compilation from 1966. There's no theme to the album, so I figure it's leftovers that the company parlayed into a random collection. Amazon lists various versions. It includes The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The Lovin' Spoonful, Al Kooper, Tom Rush, and three songs by Eric Clapton and the Powerhouse: Eric, Jack Bruce, Steve Winwood, Paul Jones (Manfred Mann's lead singer), Pete York, and Ben Palmer. https://www.discogs.com/artist/298085-Eric-Clapton-And-The-Powerhouse.

I was but this is a pretty good list especially when it comes to groups that all you need is a compilation album from.
