3 stars My first experiences with ELP, and my first review. This is a fantastic place to get started, and it took 5 weeks before The Ultimate Collection was replaced by Brain Salad Surgery in my CD player! If you are not a fan of ELP, or have not heard much of them (or none at all), then this is a great place to start. This turned into the beginning of my ELP phase within (as mentioned above) 5 weeks, and I've looked up to Keith's keyboard playing ever since. Once again however, like most compilations, people that are already fans may not like or appreciate this album, so the maximum I can give is 4 stars. Also, it has its flaws, for example: they didn't have to include Black Moon, nor Affairs of The Heart, C'est La Vie or I Believe In Father Christmas. So 3 stars it is.
