4.0 out of 5 stars Poor packaging but excellent music!
I totally agree with N. Lancashire's review. The packaging is inexplicably pointless. The gatefolds have nothing inside. All that valuable space is lost. Linear notes for each album could be included in there. Also Demons and wizards & The magician's birthday have no bonus tracks. But still it's four stars for the music alone. Maybe a good idea would be to replace one of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, REALLY stupid packaging
If you're a Heep fan, you'll know that this is a strangely picked, but broad span across the band's career from early days to recent times and are all good records, some with extra tracks, BUT the this recent re-packaging on this collection borders on imbecilic.

If you're a Heep fan, you'll know that this is a strangely picked, but broad span across the band's career from early days to recent times and are all good records, some with extra tracks, BUT the this recent re-packaging on this collection borders on imbecilic.

The new box is far stronger and better quality than the old version, with what appears to be full gatefold sleeve replicas - but they're not. the inners of these gatefolds are totally, pointlessly blank, serving no purpose but to bulk the set up to three times the thickness of the old one. Also, the back covers have been changed so the original gatefolds don't make sense - Fallen Angel turned vertically so the character's legs are missing and the roger dean landscape on Magician's Birthday doesn't run through to the reverse any more. Good value still, just a very stupid idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor packaging but excellent music!, 27 Mar 2014

Linear notes for each album could be included in there. Also Demons and wizards & The magician's birthday have no bonus tracks. But still it's four stars for the music alone. Maybe a good idea would be to replace one of the 2 Byron albums with Conquest. That way there would be 5 albums from 5 different singers!

3.0 out of 5 stars What Can You Say, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Classic Album Selection (Audio CD)
5 of Heep's albums collected together ranging across the years

So a fairly diverse slice of Heep's abilities from the earlier proggy rock of Demons and Wizards to the hard rock of Abominog and the AOR of Raging Silence

Not a bad collection if you don't already own the 5 albums in this set

4.0 out of 5 stars Took me back to University days, 18 Sep 2013

This review is from: Classic Album Selection (Audio CD)
Good late 60's early 70's progressive rock. The only down side is that some of the tracks on each album are very samey
