Where's the best place to start with these guys? Seems like I've heard a fair bit but it's so all over the place stylistically and there's so much stuff..

Bought this v v cheaply from Fopp a little while ago - excellent 3 CD set of their late 60s/70s stuff - all the hits and lots of deep cuts:

I almost think it'd have to be a box set, but the Live album from the 70s, plus Brother, Brother, Brother, 3x3 and Fight The Power are all favourites of mine.

I'm not deep in their catalog but 3 + 3 is one of my favorite albums, a joy from start to finish

Late 60s/early 70s is prob my fave era but some highlight albums:

Shout (1959)
This Old Heart Of Mine (1966)
Doin' Their Thing (1969)
3+3 (1973)

I guess you could try those and go from there
