2 stars I know, that many music fans don't like compilations, and I absolutely understand why.We have a good example just to confirm this opinion.

Pete Bardens has a long life in music,and during the years music was changed. We have terrible eclectic collection there. There are some perfect songs in it,but in chronological order placed between other pieces, alltogether material sounds as craziest dream.

Some first songs from Barden's very early period (with Peter B'Looners, Village, etc.) are just very simple beat-r'n'b era tunes. They could be interesting for heavy collectors only.After slowly we're coming to Barden's blues-rock period ( These songs are the reason why I searched for this album - there are some perfect Peter Green's guitar solo on its). Songs become more attractive, but far from prog. In fact it's something near Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac works.

Keyboards starts to dominate, and we are in next Barden's era now. I think main interest to Barden name is coming from people, who are interested in Camel. So - some solo songs, some - with Camel, so what we have here? Double CD which contains very different in styles,arrangements and even in sound quality music! What was the reason to put this dangerous mix in one place?

I can recommend this compilation for heavy Barden's fans or collectors only.
