3 stars Still one of the few prog bands who have an definite sound of their own, Jadis has been for many years the showcase foe the vocals and guitar of Gary Chandler (and long may it continue to do so). This album brings together the two CD EP's of rare material they released some time ago, along with lots of extra stuff to bring it up to over seventy minutes in length.

The songs are from various sources, and there are comments about each along with who played on it ? just a shame that for some reason the CD plays in the order of the back of the booklet, but this is a slightly different order to the listing inside. But this is just nit picking as the album is strong enough to stand as a standard release. Personal faves are the acoustic medley (don't like the naff fade out though) and "This Changing Face" which both feature just Gary and Widge. Please can we have a complete album of this some time?

As well as these, some demoes, unreleased material and live cuts make this an album that any Jadis fan will be proud to own.
