4 stars I am surprised how this CD received little love. It contains some of the better material this band have released post "Brain, Salad, Surgery" Released as a bunch of singles, this is pretty good.

The surprise is that the piece "Paper Blood" included only - as opposed to leading this selection.

The tune is the best Deep Purple riff based Rock anthem since Blackmore left that band. Except that is by ELP, probably written by Greg Lake. Emerson gets to play a few notes. but really, he is not the creative force here.

The rest of the tunes are quite fine in their own way, but "Paper Blood" steals the show and it should have been released in it's own right.

If you have the original albums, then this bunch of singles would be of no interest. Sitting on 3.5, knocking on 4 - when not compared with ELP's early works - these tunes are quite enjoyable, deserving some attention.

Anon-E-Mouse | 4/5 |
