The Best of Western Flyer is a compilation album of the two albums released by Australian blues-country band Western Flyer, originally released in 1978 and 1979 via Infinity Records.

Formed in 1976 after blues musician Matt Taylor's second attempt at living in a commune (which to his credit was part of an effort at promoting environmentalism), Western Flyer was in Taylor's words "a unique experiment in Australian music". Taking on a more country-flavoured sound than his previous music projects, Western Flyer signed to Festival Records' prog and psych rock label Infinity, and produced two albums between 1977 and 1979, First Flight and Live To Survive!

Many of the songs recorded by Western Flyer were written by Matt Taylor with Brian Peacock during their time living on the commune.

Featuring Matt Taylor (Vocals/Harmonica/Acoustic Guitar), Vance Burrows (Lead Guitar), Mick Elliot (Lead Guitar) Bruce Devenish (Drums), James Gillard (Bass, Backing Vocals), John Poole-Johnson (Keyboards), and Brian Peacock (Vocals/2nd Guitar), The Best of Western Flyer is a combination of the band's two LPs, and contains nearly all of the Western Flyer's discography, with the exception of five songs.

After the two albums and several national tours including with Mike Nesmith, Taj Mahall, and others they broke up with expenses far outweighing takings.

Check out the tracks "The Promised Land", "Throw Me A Line", "Double Gee Queen" , "Providence" and "I Remember When I Was Young".

This CD comes in a jewel case and was made in Australia via Forever Records "Forever Collections Series", individually numbered and autographed by Matt Taylor.
