[Charts and ratings]

Deciding 1976's "The Best Of The Band" wasn't enough (or wanting to have a product out to compete with "The Last Waltz"), Capitol released the two-LP "Anthology", a skimpy 20-track, two-LP set with liner notes by rock critic Robert Palmer. It's more complete than The Best of The Band, but shares the same problem -- that the Band is best appreciated on their full-length albums rather than on any compilation.
