4 stars I heard this cd originally because my brother bought it due to the fact that he liked the song "from the beginning" He primarily listened to the acoustic greg lake stuff and didnt pay as much attention to the true Prog Rock on it. When he left for the army and gave me all of his cds I started listening to this one...mostly just for the acoustic stuff as it was more new listener freindly. I eventually started listening to the other songs as well and was quite fascinated with the music selection on it and I still am. Everything here is awesome although "peter gunn theme" is kind of unnecesary although I wont argue with it because it is a decent song. Who cares if this is not exactly the "best" of ELP. It is an epic presentation of awesome material and is a good introduction to their stuff although looking back I now would rather just have all these songs in their original album format because I will be buying every ELP album available. It is a good way to snag listeners into progressive rock and eventually get them hooked on it. If someone would have handed me "pictures at an exhibtion" I doubt i would have gotten into it although now I love that album. In conclusion, it is a perfect way to get standard issue music listeners into progressive rock.
