AllMusic Review by

The 1994 English compilation Chronicles (1968-1984) is the abbreviated companion piece to Rhino's 1993 double-disc set Anthology, covering the same ground but with significantly less songs. This does mean that some cool songs are missing, but the basic canon is here, from Love Sculpture, through solo recordings, to Rockpile, and back to solo years again. True, it's presented in true budget-line fashion, but the sound isn't bad, and it does have original liner notes, and the selection of songs is first-rate, making it a good sampler for those seeking a no-frills hits package.
