The Best of Arlo Guthrie contains the following songs. Side 1: 1. Gabriel's Mother's Hiway Ballad 16 Blues 3. Cooper's Lament Side 2 1. Motorcycle Significance of the Pickle Song 2. Coming Into Los Angeles 3. Last Train 4. City of New Orleans 5. Darkest Hour 6. Last to Leave This is absolutely wonderful stuff. It contains the complete "Alice's Restaurant" plus eight other songs. One of my favorite records. I'm an Arlo Guthrie fan but found this disappointing because it included "Alice's Restaurant" in its to-me tedious entirety, leaving not enough space for some of my favorite ballads.
One person found this helpful. I bought this album for the song, "The City of New Orleans", which was meaningful from the first time that I heard it. It poignantly portrays a vanishing age of railroading that I have lived through. I also enjoyed the "Alice's Restaurant" song, about an actual event in Arlo's life, recounted in the film by that name. Fortunately for Arlo, he missed this deadly arrow, and he has continued in Woody's tradition.
For me, listening to Arlo is a celebration of life. I adore The City of new Orleans, it's just as charming and magical as years ago, although it's the only song I really like. It's totally worth getting this CD just for City of New Orleans, Alice's Restaurant gets a bit annoying at 18 minutes, dealing with Alice's trash, I'd forgotton that part through the years, maybe 3- 4 minutes of Alice's Restaurant, good editing, but the CD is still great fun.
