RC: This is from the people who brought you the 2CD Parliament set. Now they're trying to reach a larger audience with a stripped down version of that set. This is a pretty good set of songs, but it's missing a couple of essentials ("Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk", for starters). Still better than the Greatest Hits that came out in 1984, with all songs at their original length. It does at least include the underrated tunes from Trombipulation, "Let's Play House" and "Agony Of Defeet." For the most casual of fans only. Great liner notes are a plus.
