2 stars No, no, no!!! For once, I agree with with the crowd and have to say this was almost a complete waste of time!!! There are maybe 5 tracks here that are pretty decent and I would have been quite happy with an EP release, but an entire album is too much.

Songs like "Flash" and "The Hero" are still decent songs, and I really enjoy the guitar version of "The Marriage Theme." Apart from that, I think maybe "Football Fight", "Vulcan's Theme", and "Battle Theme" are the only things worthy of listening to more than once!

Interestingly, in 1981-82 they played only 4 of these tracks (no Marriage Theme or Football Fight) "Vulcan" and "Battle" they only played several times while "Flash" and "The Hero" actually made it through 1982. By 1984, the songs were all gone from the setlist, and we all breathed a sigh of relief!

Don't get this unless you are a completist!!
