2 stars This CD compiled from parts of two shows recorded for BBC is mostly of interest to Gryphon completionists. Songs are from two albums, "Midnight Mushrumps" (2, 3, 5) and "Raindance" (4, 6, 7), with "medley" start and "jig" end, arranged flawless as it was one concert. The only true progressive moment is 16 minute "Ein Klein Heldenleben" from "Raindance", good enough to make curious progressive music listeners or Gryphon fans to try this CD. The other moment of value is another 16 minute track, "Midnight Mushrumps", but song is more in medieval folk manner. Rest are some "straight", "fusion", "baroque" and "rag" folk, not of many interest to progressive listeners.

Those who are new to Gryphon, and love real progressive music, I suggest "Red Queen to Gryphon Three", "Raindance" and "Midnight Mushrumps".
