Rebound's Legendary Hits compilation is no means complete picture of the Allman Brothers Band's legendary hits. The glaring omissions of three of their most well-loved songs ("Melissa," "Dreams," and "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed") is solid proof of that fact alone. However, that is not to say it's a bad compilation. On the contrary, there are several nuggets of pure Allman joy to be had in this economically feasible compilation, and every song on here is worth the price of purchase. However, for a more comprehensive survey of the band's career, the 20th Century Masters edition would serve the casual listener well, and the 2001 expanded edition of The Road Goes on Forever also provides a more in-depth and exhaustive look at the career of a band who will go down in history as one of Southern rock's finest.
