One of the best bands EVER
Anyone who doesn't know this band - buy it.
I can guarantee you'll love it.
Ive got all the tracks. Still buy it though, maybe
I'd only have one criticism - they fell away a bit when the likes of Zoot Money joined.
You all loved Blind Faith's brief one album run - you know Eric Clapton, Stevie Winwood, Ginger Baker....the fourth one was Rick Grech - OUT OF THIS BAND.

Not intended to down it too much, but he was only the bassist...

And compared to Blind Faith : Ginger Baker's AIrforce were a more commercial band and received wisdom is Airforce went down in flames .....

Excuse the fragment based comments ... Presence of the Lord .... CLASSIC

But there again is Airforce's Man of Constant Sorrow

Top stuff OP - had to have this and been looking for at a good price! Hot.

Hot deal but initial listen didn't do anything for me. But a lot of music for the money.

Hmmmmmm...... Why no Weaver's Answer if this is the very best of?

+1 - I agree.

It's a great price for this collection though.

Every Family 'best of' compilation I look at seems to be missing one or two key tracks, or when it looks fairly complete, half of them end up being poor quality live versions. I guess its all down to different labels / rights? Shame. Perhaps I havent looked hard enough.

HOT!

I doubt there are any live tracks on this as it plunders the studio recordings from Reprise & Raft Records - its the later hux bbc stuff that would be the live stuff.
I think weavers would be a wise inclusion , but the actual single that became a hit was a 3 track ep single with Strange Band - The Radio Channels at the time played Weavers Answer which was considered the strongest track. Strange Band gets included here as it was officially the a Side in the UK.
