This collection is almost identical content wise to the similarly titled "Best of BJH" with the bland "BJH" cover.

The tracks are all taken from BJH's Polydor label period, and thus it is economical with the truth to call this "The best of" without some sort of qualification. Admittedly "Mocking bird", originally from their second album is here, but it is a live version from 1987, not the original. There are many fine tracks included, especially those from "Gone to earth" ("Hymn", "Poor man's moody blues"), and from "Xii" ("Loving is easy", "Berlin"). There are however too many from their later less impressive albums not least of which, the title tracks from "Victims of circumstance", "Ring of changes", and "Welcome to the show".

Since many of the tracks which would truly befit a "Best of BJH" collection were recorded during their Harvest label years, the title of this album should be taken with a large pinch of salt. Having done that, you will still find many fine tracks.
