My favorite is Give the People What They Want. They did a good deal of musical recycling but still a strong album IMO.

Village Green Preservation Society Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire) Lola versus Powerman Muswell Hillbillies
Lola is not the dividing line.
Preservation Act 1 & 2 is good, almost prog rock.
Give the People What They Want is way late material, punk era and they do a decent job of sounding relevant during that time (Van Halen was covering them at the time also). Around the Dial is a kick ass song off that album.
Other than that I would go to their early sixities stuff after Muswell Hillbillies.
I will occasionally listen to a greatest hits package. My ears can't get around the crappy production and engineering (nevermind mono) of their 60s era stuff. I made better recordings as a teenager with a cassette deck.
Saw them live in 83 and wasn't prepared for the rock that ensued. Tremendous show.
