There are a whole bunch of Paul Revere the Raiders compilations on the market, so why should you choose this one? Unfortunately, there's not a good answer for that question -- Super Hits is budget-priced and well-mastered with clean, well-separated stereo sound, and has most of the songs you remember best from one of the best (and least pretentious) American rock bands of the mid-'60s. But it's not especially well-sequenced, and the addition of a few lesser-known tracks in this context is more distracting than illuminating. If you're looking for a cheap Paul Revere the Raiders set to throw into your car stereo, Super Hits will do the job, but anyone wanting a more complete picture of this band ought to pick up The Essential Ride '63- '67 or the augmented version of Greatest Hits, either of which do greater justice to this underappreciated band. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
