These are artists or groups who have never made a consistently solid record, but have enough good songs that a compilation would be very fine. This occurred to me while going through S and the Banshees discography, but may have first entered my mind when listening to Belle and Sebastian.

In your opinion, who are some tasty Best-Of Bands?

For the majority of my music purchasing life, I would say this perfectly describes......The Rolling Stones. (with all apologies to Gmku)

And lets not forget The Talking Heads and Frank Black.

I once bought teh Santana greatest hits CD thinking they were ripe for this type of best-of treatment, and there were only 2 songs worth anything on it. Santana sucks that bad.

I'm going to go out on a limb: Sleater-Kinney. Lots of great great songs, but plenty of "skippers" as well.

That's hilarious about Santana. I've always wondered about the rest of his stuff, having only heard two songs. Now I know the two I've heard are all I need to hear.

This is why I stated: "For the majority of my music purchasing life."

Over the last couple of years, I've become more enamored with Rolling Stone albums. Still don't own any of their "proper" albums, but I may someday soon purchase one.

Other groups this thread is perfect for: CAKE, The Dandy Warhols

Then how about a Rolling Stones best-of for the past 43 years? There's probably enough good stuff to fill up one disc. Maybe.

Echo and the Bunnymen

Cocteau Twins. Actually, a CT best-of would be amazing.

oh, gotcha.

and ditto for TheMadcap on Creedence(or a least that's what i think he's referring to). though none of their greatest hits contain "Ramble Tamble"( i think )....which is a monster of a song.

First two albums yes. Dig Me Out and The Hot Rock especially no. Sleater-Kinney make albums, no filler material, albeit some tunes aren't as strong as others. I vote for Smashing Pumpkins as the ultimate best-of-band. Second place? Journey. Definitely Journey. Maybe they should even take first? The Bronze goes Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Do they even make albums, or great EP collections of great singles with a shitload of funky filler?

Abba, the Carpenters, Girls Aloud, Queen, Madness, Britney, Pet Shop Boys... much of pop music, sadly.
