4.0 out of 5 stars Discs of Changes 29 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
This 3 CD boxset is a measured distillation of the previously issued 'All are gathered safely in' 5 Disc set, and it's all the better for it. I would class myself as a long-time fan of the group, without feeling the need to purchase everything they do. In my opinion their output has been mixed ever since the departure of keyboard player Woolly Wolstenholme. This 3 CD pack is very consistent and includes the very best of their work. Disc 1 is quite superb with most of the early classics on view. Disc 2 is also extremely strong up to about the half way point. Reading through the extensive booklet of interviews with band members you can see how the band struggled to re-capture former glories whilst the relationships and musical directions started to splinter. Nevertheless they would go on to see a major high point live at the Reichstag and Disc 3 opens strongly. From there the tracks are less memorable although tracks like the superb 'Fifties child','Denshaw Mill' and 'Lady Macbeth' prove that class is permanent. If you just want a comprehensive overview of a long career then this is the one. Once again Esoteric Records have delivered the goods. (Sad footnote - Just a week after purchasing this the news came in that Woolly had tragically taken his own life. Therefore the boxset becomes a statement of what a wonderful performer he was, a master of the mellotron)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection of BJH tracks 27 Mar 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
As a lifelong listener to BJH this triple album contains all the essential tracks you would want. From the early days of the likes of She Said and Galadriel through classics such as Poor Man's Moody Blues to the later tracks recorded just before they split into two bands. Great mellotron playing by the sadly missed Woolly Wolstenholme and great drumming by the also sadly missed Mel Pritchard not to mention the lead and bass from John and Les. i have downloaded this album as mp3 from Amazon and it's 400MB of pure delight. Highly recommended for all the BJH fans out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Best of from BJH 27 Nov 2009
By Colin Logue - Published on
Format:Audio CD
'Sea of Tranquility' is by far the best collection of BJH songs ever to grace a CD. Polydor circumvented the restriction of using any of their EMI output by culling them from live performances while the band recorded under the label. One track in question is 'Medicine Man' which is taken from a 1976 live recording and sounds better than the studio version with beefed up guitar and rhythm section.

Their first album with Polydor was 'Everyone is Everybody Else' with 5 tracks featured, 3 of which were remastered in 2003 and sound bigger for that. The tour de force from that album was 'For No One' (not the Beatles song) but mysteriously did not get the remastered treatment. The following 3 live tracks are all from the 1974 live album and represent material from their days on EMI's Harvest label, 'She Said She Said' along with concert favourite 'Mocking Bird' and 'Galadriel', a song eluded to in later years on the song 'John Lennon's Guitar'. The superb self mockery of 'Poor Man's Moody Blues' appears in its' full 7 minute glory and a surprisingly good live version of 'Suicide' from 'Live Tapes'.

To make it interesting for long time fans some tracks appear in their single release form and actually sound better than the original album versions. The much maligned 'Face to Face' album is well represented and it has to be said that the compiler(s) have selected the strongest material from every album.

It's all presented in a beautiful package complete with copious and infromative liner notes. This is the best of to buy if you have little of no BJH in your collection and given it's a triple CD set the price is pretty fair.

Enjoy this highly recommended set.
5.0 out of 5 stars BJH - Compilation 4 Feb 2013

Poor mans Moody Blues? I think not. This collection proves that not only are BJH one of the most underestimated prog bands of the era. BJH are one of the finest. More mellotron per minute than practically any prog album..

Barclay James Harvest is similar to Arena rock/ Moody Blues. Good compilation of their career. Includes biggest hits from "Back to Earth".

1.0 out of 5 stars Music great, CD maybe not that good 11 April 2013
By Luis Pedro Garcia - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the CD's is unreadable. We, the CD buyers, are a dying breed. With things like this, I am discouraged to buy CDs as I got ripped off one third of my purchase. Sending it back would cost me more money so I will leave it at that but when quality control is that bad........ Well I guess you can find other ways of getting the music
