This is one killer collection, with great sound and an impeccable selection of tracks -- the only thing that AIM Records doesn't make clear on the outside of the packaging is that it's made up of live performances and re-recordings of various relatively recent vintages, rather than the Sir Douglas Quintet's original 1960s material. That said, it should also be stated that the performances are mostly superb, even if they're not the original classic renditions, and no fan of the group should ever feel cheated if he or she buys this CD, and may even be pleasantly surprised. The annotation is also suitably vague about dates (forget places), but the music is so much fun that those gaps can be forgiven, if not entirely overlooked.
