2 stars This is an average compilation with material from Tasavallan Presidentti's first, third and fourth studio albums, including few single cuts. "Sisältäni portin löysin" is not the version from Pekka Streng's "Magneettimiehen kuolema" album, but recording from 1972 with Eero Raittinen on vocals. I think this version is stronger than Pekka's original one, so this track stands as a nice bonus feature. This compilation is not still very essential if you are familiar with the records of this band, but I guess it works as a decent introduction of group's music. I also think this was one of the last vinyl releases of this group from year 1990, and it is a shame the song selections and their placements on order appear slightly random.
