Despite never achieving the star status of The Grateful Dead. The Doors or Jefferson Airplane, Spirit were fully as innovative and powerful as any of their ’60s California peers.

This collection was already essential when released in its original form in the 1970s. With snazzy remastering and several additional cuts, it’s all the more enticing. Their tasteful, blues-influenced psychedelic guitar, jazz-tinged keyboards and percussion, and finely honed pop-rock songcraft made for one of the most idiosyncratic and rewarding sounds of the decade. And this compilation manages to nail many of Randy California and co’s numerous high points.
