As far as box sets go, this 3 CD selection is pretty cut and dry. This is simply all of the band's singles that they released from 1964-1971, including the B-sides. Since many of these B-sides were only released as B-sides, there's a lot of stuff here you may not have heard before. (Out of the 58 songs, I would guess about 15 were never on an album - but I'm just guessing).

A casual fan would be more advised to go after one of the many 1 or 2 disc compilations and save a little money. There's an awful lot of their early stuff that didn't get much airplay, and there's also, surprisingly, a big chunk of the psychedelic stuff that was only featured on one album. This is for the serious fan that wanted everything. They weren't disappointed.
