Prog Reviewer
5 stars This is a 6CD compilation of the six self-published cassette releases which put Ozric Tentacles on the musical map back in the 1980s. Originally issued as a limited edition by DoveTail in 1994, the set would see a rerelease by MadFish, somewhat remastered, and has now had a further remastering and new issue through KScope, in a book-style presentation reminiscent of the form factor they have used for collections like Travelling the Great Circle.

The cassette albums could be rough around the edges - especially the first two - but they represent a part of the band's musical journey any fan will want to hear, and the CD presentations (especially in their remastered forms) do a fine job of teasing out the finer qualities of the material and overcoming the limitations of their original presentation. Serious fans of the group will want this anyway; those who want an instant six-hour trip into their foundational work could do much worse than starting out here.

Warthur | 5/5 |
