3 stars Considering that it's 3 CDs, it's not terrible at all: Genesis, Yes, ELP, Jethro Tull, VDGG - - and that's just the first disc. I found this cheap, so I can't complain, but too many songs here are repeats from other compilations. I didn't need third copies of 'Lucky Man,' 'Sympathy,' or 'Hocus Pocus,' thank you. But to be fair, most of the third disc was new to me, so there's that.

Right now it's on Amazon for $13 plus shipping, which is probably too much for most people reading this, since you probably already have much of what's here. On the other hand, with some semi-familiar classic rock from Peter Gabriel, ELO, and Deep Purple, it might not be a bad buy for a friend whom you're trying to get to listen to proggier rock.

Good, but not essential by any definition that I can think of; three stars.
