4 stars Although Pendragon may have been relatively quiet of late, it is worth noting that Nick Barrett, Clive Nolan, Peter Gee and Fudge Smith have been responsible for some of the most classy prog music to come out of the UK in the Eighties and Nineties. This compilation is an attempt to lovingly put together a representative selection of their best songs, in a superb digipak with two 12- page booklets detailing the history of the band along with a discography. Why two booklets? Well, amazingly enough this has only been released in Poland so one booklet is in Polish (words by my good friend Artur Chachlowski) with the other being a translation.

. If you are a Pendragon fan then this is essential as not only is the packaging some of the best I have seen, but it also contains a video clip and two acoustic numbers ("The King Of The Castle" and "Paintbox") which have been recorded solely for this compilation. This is a great introduction to the band a CD that anyone who enjoys Floyd style prog can purchase with extreme confidence.
