This double-CD set is not only the best of Bill Chase's output but – comprising all three of their albums – virtually their complete finished studio work, before the plane crash that killed Chase and much of the group. The mastering on this Wounded Bird reissue is excellent, with a full solid bass sound topped by soaring highs on the brass and no compression to speak of. It's not as though this catalog has been overused, in terms of its master tape library – apart from the hit "Get It On" – but it's still good to know that the stuff has been well handled in terms of being digitalized.
