4 stars I only bought this compilation having coveted it for many years just for the nice artwork! The pleasing thing about this selection is that there is nothing post 1980 so there is no crud from Black Moon or ELPowell thankfully just 150 minutes from the glory years of this great progressive rock band. The only quibble I have is the ommision of Hoedown and the title track of Trilogy but otherwise its all there. Great chunks of ELP,Tarkus (the suite) ,Pictures at An Exhibition and Brain Salad Surgery covering mostly the heavier symphonic stuff that defined ELP's style. The quality of the CD are surprisingly good considering they were first masterings. No absent of any detail and plenty of dymanics. I can happily listen to this and ignore most of the remasterings that have added little or nothing. Highly recommended for anyone who just wants a compilation of this important band in this collection.
