2 stars Picked this up for 7.99 at HMV. Appeared to be a top notch, good value compilation featuring a lot of their best work. Unfortunately, it is a bargain basement live album which appears to be from two different eras of the band. CD1 appears to be the classic 70s incarnation of the band featuring Jan, Thijs etc and is an average quality recording from TV/Live appearances. Not the best live recording (See Live at the Rainbow) but an interesting addition for collector's. CD2 sounds a lot better quality wise, but also sounds like Karaoke Focus- Don't know where Van Leer found these guys (the guitarist is really, I mean REALLY, rubbish) but he should have left them there. Like I said, interesting..........
