God bless 70's power pop.

It's gonna be a good rocking night.

Mr. Brau, I just sought out all of Cheap Trick's early stuff last year and it's exciting to hear someone getting the same treat.

I'd say go one album further and get Dream Police as well. Not as strong as the first 3 but some great cuts.

And of course, Live at Budokan is a must-have, but make sure you get the full concert 2-disc set. These guys kill live.

What took you so long?

These three albums absolutely rock. It's a shame they couldn't keep it up after Dream Police, although they still did have some good tunes scattered throughout the rest of their career.

I was a "Best Of" boy.

I just spent 2 months devouring Badfinger's catalog, and went looking for more power pop.

Very happy right now.

Great band, think I first heard them in 1979.
Try and get the 4 CD box set “Sex America”, studio, live tracks and demos.
Two members did 3 songs with John Lennon, for his Double Fantasy album (I’m Losing You, Beautiful Boy & I’m Moving On) which I prefer but Yoko did not and they were canned.

I made a single 80 minute CD of my favorite tracks from the first three albums (and with 80 minutes, you can get a lot from those short discs). It's similiar to what you just posted, and it's a barnburner.

Dream Police is good, but a notch below those three. Although it's worth it just for Gonna Raise Hell...

I grew up listening to Cheap Trick.
Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson, and Bun E. Carlos.
They are STILL one of my favorite 'oldies but goodies groups' from the 70's.

I would also say Big Eyes and Clock Strikes Ten.

I love all those tracks too, but, Speak Now Or Forever Hold Your Peace is my favorite from their 1st album ... not to mention,
also The Ballad Of TV Violence.
I always blast the stereo so loud on those two tracks!!
My next-door neighbors call up and complain because they too, can hear the music.
