3 stars This collection, released after The Nice was long broken up, and Emerson Lake & Palmer was filling arenas around the world, focuses primarily on the psychedelic aspects of the bands music. Well, that may be appropriate, as that is what made up most of their studio recordings. And the more symphonic tracks were mostly too long to fit on a one LP collection without dominating the release.

You do get a good idea from this as to what The Nice was about (minus the classical and jazz interludes Emerson would go off into when playing live). There is also a previously unreleased recording of Daddy, Where Did I Come From (a comedic piece, like Benny The Bouncer).

All in all, it's a fair selection from one of the original prog rock bands.
