4 stars This album is a collection of recordings made in the BBC studios before any Brand X albums were recorded. It shows the band in the process, almost complete, of coming up with their unique brand of fusion, featuring tight, fast playing and exciting compositions.

The songs show many of the themes and melodies that would come to comprise some of the songs on the first few albums. The sound quality isn't quite as good as their official studio albums, but it is still very good.

While I would recommend most of the albums that do not have Phil Collins the singer on them (Phil Collins the exceptional drummer is a different story) before this one, it is still a nice album by one of the premier fusion bands.

And anything with Percy Jones get an extra star from me.
