Spirit The Best Of Spirit on 180g LP
Friday Music / Spirit 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios & Manufactured at RTI
In 1974, the good folks at Epic Records compiled an amazing overview of Spirit’s most memorable and fan driven favorites with the album The Best Of Spirit. This collection featured the brilliant and sorely missed vocals and guitar work of Randy California, the rockin’ lead vocals of Jay Ferguson, the driving bass and vocals of Mark Andes, the powerful drums of the late great Ed Cassidy, plus the keyboard wizardry of the late John Locke.
This mammoth collection had something for everybody as it culled tracks not only from the band's four superior albums on Ode and Epic Records, but it also included the rare hit 45 single "1984." Therefore, a good majority of the band's hits and definitive tracks are featured on this excellent career compendium.
Familiar classics like "The Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus" and "The Family That Plays Together" anchor an 11-song set that also includes further Spirit treasures like "Nature’s Way," "I Got A Line On You," "Morning Will Come," "Animal Zoo," "Fresh Garbage," "Uncle Jack" and "Dark Eyed Woman." The legendary L.A. sound of Spirit is also highlighted here with hits like "Mr. Skin" and rockers like "Prelude: Nothing To Hide" and "Mechanical World."
The music of Spirit has made them one of the most beloved bands of all time. Their concerts were trendsetting events, their albums and songs were of epic proportions, and the cosmic energy between each individual member remains unequaled. Friday Music is pleased to offer The Best Of Spirit on gatefold 180g vinyl in celebration of the album's 40th anniversary. Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and manufactured at RTI.
