In recent years Universal has been releasing a series of progressive and/or psychedlic collections and this one is up there with the best. It has a great balance of hit songs such as Thunderclap Newman's 'Something In The Air', Focus 'Hocus Pocus', Julie Driscoll's 'This Wheel's On Fire' and Arthur Brown's 'Fire' and rarities which are either difficult to track down or you've ever heard of.
It features a roster of great Polydor artists from 1967-1974 such as Cream, The Who, Taste, Jack Bruce and Fairport Convention and there is high quality of material throughout the 50 tracks, which starts of with The Crazy World of Arthur Brown's 'Fire' suite and closes Focus 'Hocus Pocus'.
If you have the likes of Decca's 'Strange Pleasures - Further Sounds Of The Decca Underground', Harvest's 'Breath of Fresh Air' or 'Time Machine - A Vertigo Retrospective' then you will have an idea of what to expect from this collection of well known songs and obscurities from the late 60's/early 1970's. It really is a worthwhile investment if you are into the Prog/Psych music from the era.
