The band commented: "The youngest Rider fans were not even born when the debut album was released, so we can use the words 'cross-generational,' now. Who would have ever thought? Die Apokalyptischen Reiter would like to thank their audience with this CD, especially for their passion and loyalty. With over 100 songs, it was not easy to select the 20 best.
"So the band has searched their archives, set lists and guest books of the past, to find out the songs that have moved most. Musical boundaries and limits have never been subject to the selection on 'The Greatest Of The Best'.
"Packaging and the booklet could not be more opulent, the seaman yarn of the liner notes will even die-hard fans let their knees tremble. Rare and brand-new photos, an elaborate cover like for production as a studio album. 'The Greatest Of The Best' is a jewel."
