Review

Not every song on Sony Music Special Products' Rock Classics qualifies as a "rock classic," but most of the songs fit squarely into the "classic rock" tradition -- really, that's the only thing tying Blood Sweat & Tears ("And When I Die"), the Edgar Winter Group ("Free Ride"), the Byrds ("Turn! Turn! Turn!"), Carlos Santana ("Them Changes"), Mott the Hoople ("All the Young Dudes"), Mountain ("Mississippi Queen"), Electric Flag ("Groovin' Is Easy"), Poco ("A Good Feelin' to Know"), Argent ("Hold Your Head Up"), David Essex ("Rock On") and Spirit ("Nature's Way"). There aren't quite as many album-rock staples as you might expect, but the off-beat choices make the collection more interesting, at least to listeners who want to hear more than the hits. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
