Limited Edition 40th Anniversary 180g Audiophile Vinyl!
Impeccably Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso! Pressed at RTI!

In 1974, the good folks at Epic Records compiled an amazing overview of Spirit's most memorable and fan driven favorites simply titled 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 four superior albums on Ode and Epic Records, but it also included the rare hit 45 single 1984. Therefore, a good majority of the hits and definitive Spirit tracks are included on this career compendium of songs which will forever stand the test of time.

Their most familiar songs from The Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus and The Family That Plays Together are featured with tracks like Nature's Way, I Got A Line On You, Morning Will Come and Animal Zoo. Plus even more Spirit classics are included like Fresh Garbage, Uncle Jack and Dark Eyed Woman.

The legendary L.A. sound of Spirit is also highlighted with massive smash hits like Mr. Skin and more rockers like Prelude: Nothing To Hide and Mechanical World.

The music of Spirit has made them one of the most loved bands of all time. Their concerts were trendsetting events, their albums and songs were of legendary proportion, and the cosmic energy between each individual member is of unequalled dimension.

Friday Music is honored once again to be the torchbearer for some of the finest music ever recorded, and it is with much honor to announce the first time audiophile vinyl release of The Best Of Spirit. This audiophile event is mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and features all of the original versions of their finest recordings ever.
