4 stars It's criminal how few have reviewed the works of Hugh Hopper on this site. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on him but I've owned 1984 and Tunity Box for quite some time and they are both excellent - Hugh's solo style may be an acquired taste for some, but he's obviously not copying anybody on those releases. He is aggressive like Magma in spots and Canterbury whimsy shows up in other spots. No vocals at all. I'm not usually a fan of the sound of saxaphone, but I find it fits here. Some of these songs are from Tunity Box, others I had never heard before, but ten plus listens to this comp I find nothing tedious. This is entertaining stuff for progheads and aggressive jazz fans. $1.99 used on ebay
