4 stars Wigwam really only released one solid album - that being _Fairyport_ which is a masterpiece of Finnish prog., and to a lesser extent Canterbury music outside of that English scene. There are 2 tracks from _Fairyport_ on this HIGHLIGHTS compilation, somewhat representative but _Fairyport_ should be listened to as a whole. Other releases from Wigwam seem to be in a 10cc vein, as in _very uneven_ but always interesting. Hit and miss, if you will. Wigwam's HIGHLIGHTS corrects that problem by compiling what I feel are the highlights from their albums outside of _Fairyport_. This compilation is worth the price alone for the track _Kite_. It's not very prog-like, but has some of the best back-up vocals I've ever heard in a pop-rock setting. I can't recommend this enough for anyone wanting an introduction to Wigwam or to simply have a Finnish inclusion in your collection.
