AllMusic Review by

This two-disc Classic Rock Hits box set is actually a repackaging of two budget-line compilations, and while the sticker on the front may say "remastered with extensive liner notes," that's a bit of an exaggeration since the liner notes don't really provide information in extensive detail. The first disc features 20 songs from a wide range of classic rock artists from the '70s and '80s, including Billy Idol, Poison, Alice Cooper, and the Doobie Brothers, among others. The second disc features classic rock artists performing their most well-known songs from the '70s and '80s live. Unfortunately, these are recordings from bands well past their prime years, leaving this set as a curiosity only for the most die-hard classic rock fans.
