The first greatest hits album by Paul Revere & the Raiders was an amazing piece of work. This second one is just as amazing, but in some different ways. At this point in their career, they had departed from their more mainstream, pop sound and ventured into more experimental territory. The album gets off to a rocking good start with quot;Let Me!" and the fun never lets up. "Don't Take it so Hard" and "Do Unto Others" have always been two of my absolute favorite Raiders songs. Note that this compilation mostly includes the album versions of the songs, so in the cases of "Let Me!" and "Too Much Talk," the songs are a bit longer than how they appear on many other compilations.
