4 stars Presumably issued to cash in on the chart success of "Memories", this early compilation combines cuts from the band's first two albums (1970's "Earth & Fire" and 1971's "Song Of The Marching Children") with quite a number of non-album singles and B-sides. Most of the material blends beat, psychedelia and progressive in various combinations, and whilst it is unlikely to please prog purists, the musical standard is consistently excellent.

4 stars I have had this album for ages, since the seventies at least, it has all the major hits the band has ever had, and living in Holland these received considerable airplay. One song is written by Golden earring George Kooymans and barry Hay. The album is essential to get a good variety of the bands musical career, however finding the cd version of this one will be very hard. But some new copilation CDs exitst that have most of the songs on this album, and then some.

Great album, not as proggy as one may expect. more 60's free rock, with experimental edge, probably song of the marching children is the trippiest.
