This rather brief double CD collection could actually have fitted onto a single disc. The second CD is simply the band's sole album in full, devoid of bonus material or additional tracks. It is therefore to the first disc we must look for anything of interest for those who have already obtained the band's debut. (Those who have the original LP are of course sitting on something of a goldmine, such it its rarity).

The contents of the first disc are in fact in the main demos recorded by the band around the same time as the album. Naturally, both the A and B side of the non-album single "Go your way"/"Keep out cause I'm dying" are included. Apart from that, there are a mere six additional tracks, all of which are now available on the vastly superior double CD collection (overseen by John DuCann) "The definitive collection".

In terms of the music, the songs here are very much of their time, the band's ambitions tending to run ahead of their compositional and perfuming abilities. The songs are almost invariably guitar driven proto-rock affairs with so-so vocals and little in the way of memorable melodies.

Given the deficiencies of this particular package, those with an interest in the work of Andromeda would be well advised to pass this one by.
