I have been a fan of this band since the first time i did hear "Hold your Head Up" on the radio and bought the extraordinary "All Together Now" album. Since then i tried to keep track of what they did, but the problem with them is that they had or never had a proper public relations agent or their record company did not promote them much as they deserved.

This "new" compilation comes because they recently re-formed for some few dates. All ARGENT members are extraordinary good musicians. ROD ARGENT, is a former member of the ZOMBIES and also played on THE WHO s' WHO ARE YOU album and produced late extraordinary colombian singer SORAYA all cds and hits. BOB HENRIT and ROBERT ROTFORD became drummer and bassist for THE KINKS.

And guitar player and composer extraordinarie RUSS BALLARD not only recorded top solo cds but also penned hit singles for AMERICA (You can Do Magic and Border), ROGER DALTREY (Free Me), RAINBOW (I Surrender and Since You Been Gone),and ABBA s' singer Frida s biggest hit all over the world "I Know there is something goin on".

RUSS BALLARD had some solo minor singles "VOICES" and "THE FIRE STILL BURNS" and his latest solo cd is his most personal and very best.

ARGENT s' songs like ITS ONLY MONEY (covered by KISS), and GOD GAVE ROCK AND ROLL TO YOU (Kiss) and ALL YOUR HEAD UP covered by FISH and URIAH HEEP among several others.

As has been reported in another review, the track marker points for this disc are incorrectly placed and the tracks begin and end in the wrong places.
This is particularly annoying if, like me, you rip your CDs to Flac files for use on a media box. Because the media box doesn't handle seamless tracks very well I get noticeable pauses in the tracks themselves and not BETWEEN the tracks. The music is excellent but buy it on a DIFFERENT disc.

Argent never really got the recognition they deserved. It`s so refreshing to hear the original of `God Gave Rock `N` Roll` again, as opposed to the abysmal Kiss cover version, but at least it verified how good Argent were! This is a great album for those who like real early unmessed 70`s rock. I should know, i was there when this was released!

Let be clear - The three stars are for the CD performance and not the music!
The Music is classic stuff.
The CD itself, from track five onward tags the first 4 or 5 seconds of the next track onto the track playing. So tracks after track 4 have the beginning clip off, if your player is set on random or a setlist is programmed.
I've try the disc in 3 different players and it's the same in all of them.
Beware.

Some really great music on here (see reviews above) - and not just the hits - but the track markers are in the wrong place, making it impossible to skip tracks / or add to your iTunes library. Very frustrating!

I have long been a fan of 70s prog rock but Argent were a band I have sadly overlooked. But no more - and I am enjoying finding out more about their work. The anthemic "God Gave Rock & Roll To You" is worth the price of the collection alone. I found myself singing it for weeks and there are many other gems here too. Now kicking myself for not discovering them sooner - don't make the same mistake people!!

As previously stated, the track markers are all in the wrong place on this CD, the result being that you get about 10 seconds of the following track at the end of the previous track. Not too distracting if you're listening to the whole CD, but useless if you want to play individual tracks, or add tracks to your playlist. Avoid !!!
