Album Review

The third time around in constructing a Dave Mason compilation, Blue Thumb Records (which had been acquired by ABC Records, and which in turn would be swallowed by MCA Records) finally made a worthy selection of its cache of Dave Mason recordings from 1970-71. The Very Best Of Dave Mason was a ten-track album collecting the most memorable songs from Alone Together—"Only You Know And I Know," "Sad And Deep As You," and "Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave"—and live performances of such well-known Traffic songs as "Feelin' Alright?" and "Pearly Queen." While the label was still to be criticized for endlessly repackaging Mason recordings, at least this one was done right—and it's the one that remains in print. (Originally released by ABC/Blue Thumb Records as ABC/Blue Thumb 6032, The Very Best Of Dave Mason was reissued by MCA Records as MCA 715 and reissued on CD in 1987 as MCA 31169.)

Customer Reviews

How to complete Alone Together...

7 out of the 8 tracks from "Alone Together" are on this compilation. If you want to complete the album, the only missing track "Look at You, Look at Me" is available under "Alone Together" (partial album). Anyway, as for the other tracks. "Headkeeper" is an awesome track, and the 2 live Traffic tunes are a definite plus. As I suggested, buy this compilation, and buy "Look at You, Look at Me" from "Alone Together" and you'll have that whole album. Definitely worth it!

Consider Other Choices

Very incomplete. Where is 'We Just Disagree" and "So High"? Probably best to do your cherry picking elsewhere.

British guitarist and singer/songwriter Dave Mason made his initial splash as a key member, alongside Steve Winwood, of the beloved '60s rock band Traffic, penning one of their biggest songs, "Feelin' All Right." After a brief stint with the band, he grew restless and left to pursue his own vision. Mason's first full-length outing, 1970's Alone Together, was a critical and popular success, showcasing superior songwriting, soulful singing, and great taste in guest artists. He continued releasing albums...
