5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Starting Point for New Fans Feb. 25 2007
By Sam Swihart - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An atmospheric, golden, classic, transporting masterpiece. March 24 2007
By Elliott - Published on Amazon.com
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars Buy this if you don't want to buy the individual solo cd's- June 24 2014
By Michael A. Pritchard - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robbie Robertson, The Best of... April 19 2010
By William Haugen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
He used to be a part of 'The Band' but is even better on his own. This album has Broken Arrow which is one of the best all time (rated by me). This has several great songs but all are worth the money and all are reminiscent of the classic age of rock; with a little of Robbie's personal style mixed in. One of the most talented artists you never heard of.

3.0 out of 5 stars Robbie got lost in the moon light Sept. 28 2006
By Dixie Middleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The song writting and instrumental work was excellent the singing was not. Robbie sounded like a New York City drag queen I heard singing on TV once. His voice was nazel and gritty sounding also sometimes it was out of tune-a real in the shower only singing voice. If he just would have let Richard Emanuel, Rick Danko 0r Levon Helms do those vocals the songs would have had justice done to them. Sacrifice with Leonard Pletieur was by favorite as in Alabama we know what happens when you step out of line. If you can forgive most of the singing the cd is worthy of purchase. Robbie should have stayed with The Band instead of Martin Scorcesi of which I think most of his films are dark and dull and a testimony to hollywood's golden age being over. My prayer is that Robbie finds the real meaning of life which is Jesus Christ.
