3 stars Freedoms Child ,Hometown Special ,Weekend Cowboy ,Bringing Me Down and Nothing At All Represent well over half an LP's worth of material that predates Gentle Giant. These track alone make this an essential purchase for fans of the band. They are well recorded and in my opinion pretty darn good, indeed I have been listening to them over and over. The Live Material from Interview, recorded at the same gig which makes up the playing the fool double album are also very fine examples of the band live. I am also rather keen on the Rondo-playing the game. The unreleased Civilian track is also something of a Joy. In fact CD 1 get 4 stars from me. CD 2 on the other hand whilst interesting is unlikely to get played to death, although it contains much that will be enjoyed by fans of the band. The Demo of freedoms child is my favorite track. CD 2 gets only two stars in my book. So if I give the whole a five star rateing for fans and a three for the rest of humanity, i think I will be getting it about right.
