AllMusic Review by

The Best of Chi Coltrane draws only on material from her first two albums, and since these are vastly superior to the rest of her catalog, its title is more than justified. "Thunder and Lightning," "You Were My Friend," "Flyaway Bluebird," and "The Wheel of Life" are undoubtedly fine songs, and every track here is worth having. But anyone looking for an anthology, or career summation, will be disappointed. For an introduction to Coltrane's music, listeners would be better off tracking down her first two albums in their entirety, rather than buying this puzzling amalgamation of them.
