Replacing the previous records Cookin' at the Plugged Nickel and Live at the Plugged Nickel, Highlights from the Plugged Nickel collects a handful of tracks from the mammoth eight-CD set The Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel 1965. Two of the tracks on Highlights are songs that were issued in their complete versions on the box, but that isn't what makes the album preferable to Cookin' and Live. On Highlights, the fidelity is stunning and the selection is first-rate -- the disc flows like one of the original concerts captured on the box. For listeners who don't want to invest in the box, Highlights is a worthwhile purchase. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
