1 stars When I saw the Carl Palmer Band in 2006 they played Bullfrog. As a way of introduction of the song Carl said "This one is from Works Vol 2, you know, the one with White Cover. Now there will be no refunds for that I'm afraid" The whole place just burst out laughing.

I think that should become the under title for this piece of recycled, owe the record company an album, no pride in what we expect you to buy from us, piece of crap. ELP just scrapped the barrel of every band and solo single a&b sides threw in some demos that should never have seen the light of day and said here you go. What a crock. The one decent Lake song I believe in Father Christmas was stripped of the orchestra and choir ending so Keith could play the ending piano part. Tiger in the Spotlight? Can anyone tell me why the band became so in love with this song and why they thought any of us liked it? It seems like it is packaged on every live and compilation since. The few decent songs can be found elsewhere in much better settings.

This is garbage can (dust bin for you Brits) only material. This schlock, shoddy embarrassing excuse for an album should reside permanently in Rock and Roll hell. 1 friggin star and if I could give less I would.
