Rick Nielsen was a highly underrated and unappreciated guitarist. A lot of his best work was on the Live at Budokan album but his abilities are also evident on this CD. This is an excellent Compilation CD. It covers a great deal of Cheap Trick's career and then some. It' starts out with a previously unreleased cover of the Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour". It's hard to do a Beatles song justice but they definitely did on this one and it was an excellent production as well. We also have "Dream Police", "Surrender" and "If You Want My Love". "The Flame" was a song they originally had reservations about doing because they felt that it wasn't the type of song that was representative of their style. But their change in heart led to another hit song that ended up on this CD. They also have the live version of "I Want You to Want Me" from the Live at Budokan (1979) album. Also from the Live at Budokan album is their great cover of "Aint that a Shame". To sum it up, It's a good mix: Covers originals, live tracks, studio tracks and one previously unreleased track. I don't think you can go wrong with this one. A close second to this album would be Live at Budokan, just for the energy of the live performance alone.
