Misleading title in the extreme.
on 22 June 2013
I bought this in the HMV under the impression the tracks were from performances on the programme, hence I didn't mind that some of the tracks strayed from what is generally regarded as Prog. There is nothing at all on the packaging to indicate otherwise, so it was with utter annoyance I listened to it and found it was just another gathering of tracks culled from any other compilation which you can pick up, usually in every supermarket on earth. The choice is bizarre at times (REO Speedwagon's Keep On Loving You, to name but one, is not prog by any stretch of the imagination) and only when you get to the inner sleeve does anyone point out that these were just hits while TOGWT was on tv. What a dishonest and utterly misleading title, and obscene connection to a programme with an enormous archive of live performances! Shame on the company behind this! I wish I'd stumbled across this on Amazon first, because here I could have read the damning reviews of this cynical product. it is nothing more than a devious marketing exercise.
