I was about 13 when I stole this from my mom's record cabinet. I'm 49 and still love this compilation. I mistakenly believed it was a soundtrack to the movie for probably the first 10-15 years I had it.

Recently found an ok copy of this LP, I remember having it in highschool. Probably the best comp LP of 70's rock EVER. Immediately after a cleaning, I was swept up in it's awesomeness...not even through side 1 and you hit Hendrix' "Freedom", the James Gang's "Must Be Love" and Deep Purple's Live version of "Smoke On The Water", and not the edited 45 version I was used to. Worth the price just for those tracks alone, and there is SO much more! Grab it if you find a clean'll not regret it!

This collection is notable for including the 9-minute extended version of Buffalo Springfield's "Bluebird".

Is it me, or is this LP set pressed a little bit too quiet?

This was advertised on TV in 1974. I was 13 and living in the midwest and the album introduced me to some groups that I had never heard. Loved it and played them til I wore them out.

The mix of "Touch Me" by the Doors that is featured on this LP compilation set is AMAZING. The engineers really punched up the audio to give it more of a "power" feeling to it.

My comment would echo wubworld's - an amazing compilation. Got it when I was 12 years old, and was blown away by almost every track! Apparently they weren't too clearly defined on what 'heavy metal' was in 1974, although 'smoke on the water', 'iron man' and 'kick out the jams' were true seminal metal. Worth owning for "Freedom" by Jimi Hendrix alone. That album continues to make me smile 40 years on...

Five Stars all the way! Some of the best songs from each artists!

Although this collection is hardly Heavy Metal it is quite possibly the best collection of rock music from this period. Bought secondhand a couple of years after its release it has informed my musical experience throughout my life. Worth owning for the full version of the Buffalo Springfields Bluebird alone.
