Editors’ Notes

Drummer Buddy Miles was a groove maestro. But it’s his underrated songwriting and singing that steal the show here. One can’t escape the should-be-classic “Them Changes,” the stinging horns of the Jimi Hendrix–produced “69 Freedom Special,” or “Joe Tex,” a reverb-drenched instrumental salute to the Texas soul stirrer (and a rewrite of the Tex original “You’re Right, Ray Charles”). Dig the funk-freaky version of Gregg Allman’s “Midnight Rider” and the beautiful vocal harmonies on the smoldering live version of Neil Young’s “Down by the River.” This essential set was culled from the half-dozen worthy albums Miles did for Mercury Records from 1968 to 1971.

Lost Masterpiece (Should be in everyones top 100)

Not many music collections rank in my top 100, but this one, does. Every song is a funk/rock classic. Buddy is a funk drummer dreamboat with an afro. Just close your eyes and bob your head....

Them Changes

I bought this album with this cover titled 'Them Changes' but they've added some more songs and called it a best of album.Check out Hendrix' 'Band of Gypsies' with Buddy.
