3/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.0
Great songs but not a great collection of them
Review written by John Fitzgerald, September 18th, 2004

The Mac's first compilation is a hodgepodge of tracks from their first two albums, singles and sessions on which Peter, John & Mick had backed up Chicago pianist Eddie Boyd. Although there are some great recordings here, I think this would have worked better if it was a collection of completely all non album tracks or rare tracks to help clean things up rather than muddle things more which is all this release seems to have accomplished. I would have dispensed with the Eddie Boyd tracks as anyone collecting the Mac would need to get Eddie's "7936 South Rhodes" album anyways for all the other songs as well as "The big boat" single as they play on the B-side song "Sent for you yesterday" too. The "Mr. wonderful" version of "Stop messin' 'round" should have been replaced by the version which appeared on the B-side of the "Need your love so bad" single which we now know was take 5 while the "Mr. wonderful" version was take 4. "Coming home" & "Looking for somebody" should've been ousted in favor of Danny's remaining three "English rose" tracks "Without you", "One sunny day" & "Something inside of me". These were the key to what made "English rose" so great to listen to and this could have not only been the British equivalent, but surpassed it.
