4 stars This is a very special compilation. It was released in 1982, and was one of my first Gentle Giant albums. I already owned Civilian and Free Hand, but the songs on the compilation were from the first years of the band.

The booklet that comes with the LP is extensive (but the text is in Italian) with lots of photos. In the days before internet, these kind of compilations were very valuable,

Because of the internet, these kind of compilations aren't as valuable anymore, because song-wise it has nothing new to offer. But for the Gentle Giant-enthousiast, this is a real gem (althought the biography is in Italian).

So I will rate it 4 stars, because it features really great songs and the booklet is so extensive.
