Although it's not assembled chronologically, the 48-track, double-disc The Very Best of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 is a near-definitive collection, featuring all of their hits plus a good selection of their album tracks and lesser-known singles. For fans who want a little more than a single-disc collection, this is an ideal purchase, even if it might be a little bit too much for some listeners. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
