echoes is prolly my favorite best of

quite amazing how they made that flow so well...perfect

The first Best of Leonard Cohen is another one of my faves. The one with his 60's and 70's stuff on it
it's beautiful

I enjoy Blur's "Best Of" quite a bit.

Even though it only compromises the first 10 yrs or so of their career, my favorite 'best of' is The Cure : Staring at the Sea.

This is seriously one of the best overall cds/ best of's that's ever been made in my opinion. What a great cd, by a great band.

buy new cd by Elvis Presley

You might like Stereophonics' "Performance & Cocktails". It's not a "Best Of" but it's really a cool album.

Then don't forget Bowie. "Earthling" and "Outside" though again not compilations are albums not to miss.

You could find one of the myriad Smiths compilations on the market. I also highly recommend New Order's Substance double dsic compilation, or something by the Stone Roses.

Nirvana- Unplugged. A sort of Best Of, some really great perfromances.

Personally, I'd rather for a good album by an artist to get into him rather than buy his Best Of.
