A Good Starting Point for New Fans Feb. 25 2007
By Sam Swihart - Published on
Format: Audio CD
First of all, I'm not sure what the first reviewer was thinking. Perhaps he was expecting Frank Sinatra on vocals? What a silly review.

Robbie Robertson does have a dark, rough voice...and it works wonderfully for his music ( he's no Tom Waits, though). The vocals aren't doctored up with a bunch of added effects and overdubbing like many pop singers, because this isn't pop. You want computer-assisted, butter & honey vocals, go listen to Justin Timberlake. You want true emotional, powerful, real singing, get this CD. The music is great, and you'll want to hear this CD many times over. Personally, I would have chosen a couple of different songs from his newer stuff from the last 10< years, and included some of his work from The Band. Still, this collection represents his musical style and artistic mastery very well. For those who are new to his music, I suggest this CD as a starting point from which you can pursue your own personal tastes in Robertson's vast repertiore.

An atmospheric, golden, classic, transporting masterpiece. March 24 2007
By Elliott - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This s one of my top albums of all time. It recreates a steamy, nostalgic, romantic, wistful mood of days gone by. Using highly crafted production and top-shelf musicians, we get a sonic masterpiece with acoustic clarity and no gimmicks.
20th Century Masters, Best Of Robbie Robertson Oct. 25 2014
By cactasJR - Published on

This is a collection of his early solo career. Kinda of a Best Of CD. If your new to Robbie Robertson, I would say purchase it. Tracks 1thru7 are from his first Solo Album & the remaining tracks are from Story Ville. They are remasted, for better sound quality & I purchased it mainly for 2 reasons. Robbie is one of the few Artist that I feel the need to own everything he's ever recorded. And this one, was just a missing piece of the puzzle for me. It is a Canadian Import & has a better sound to it. The Reckoning "Burning for You" has U2 backing him up. My only regret, is this one was not available on MP3 or AutoRip. So I'll have to load it to my cloud on my own.
Buy this if you don't want to buy the individual solo cd's- June 24 2014
By Michael A. Pritchard - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Most of the best of his solo efforts, although weighted to songs from the first one. Should have had some of the Band's tunes, but I guess they couldn't get the rights. So the title is a bit misleading.

Nothing from the Band era but a good selection of what he accomplished after.
