4 stars My version is from THE SINGLES '82 - 88' with exactly the same set except the format is in CD instead of vinyl. Indeed, if the vinyl is still available in the market, I wan to acquire it as the single is really worth collecting. The song Garden Party is one of the songs mostly played by the band from the two worlds: Fish as well as Hogarth. Composition-wise it's a wonderfully crafted song with good lyrical verse. I remember vividly in the past, a jazz radio station in Bandung (KLCBS) played this song that really surprised me as this is NOT a jazz tune after all.

The other two live tracks Charting The Single and Margaret are good representation of how dynamic the band live performance was. I really love Margaret that sometimes I played it many times especially on the part that Fish introduced his bandmates.

It's an excellent package. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
