2 stars A nice collection, but one would be much better off simply buying their first four studio albums. But it is nice to have a disc with both live and studio work on. C'est la Vie and The Hut of Baba Yaga are ELP at their best live, and to be thrown in with studio work is great. C'est la Vie is an absolute gem. It is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. The live version is very much better than the studio. But, especially for anyone even slightly a collector, it is much nicer to have a group's albums in place of a collection. An album's specific feel and atmosphere is brought out better on isolated albums. When mixed together, the atmospheric feel for each specific album is lost.
