4 stars If you heard about Pendragon but have never heard their music, this is a excellent starting point (actually, that was my case). It includes one track per album up to and including The Masquerade Overture. The first album is featuring here through a unreleased live version of The Black Knigh, which is very similar to the original one. The booklet contains covers of all albuns (and two EPs) including Not Of this world, and a brief text explaining each one, a nice touch for newcomers like me at the time. The album obviously has not all their best material , it would take at least a double CD for that, but on the other hand, you can go no wrong with this tracklist. Only classic stuff here, top notch songs and, at least one classic underground should-have-been hit, "Sister Bkuebird". The guy who chose those tunes really knew how to pick up some of the most representative pieces of the band through its long career. After getting all their albuns and singles I found out that no compilation could have been better than this one in one single CD. I wish I could say the same for most of the best of CDs I have found around... Highly recommended to anyone who wants to be introduced to this fantastic group and\or if you want to have an overall look in Pendragon's career without having to buy all their stuff.
