Long-time fans of Saxon will have all of these on worn vinyl I am sure, but will appreciate the crystal clear sound of the CD. Biff and the boys definitely benefit from the cleaner sound of the digital universe.

Disc 1 is a corker, if you ask anyone with any metal knowledge to name a Saxon song, then 10 out of 10 times they will name '747(strangers in the night)', and here it is in all it's glory, alongside other classics and crowd pleasers like '20,000ft', 'Wheels of Steel' and 'Strong Arm of the Law'.

Disc 2 carries on where Disc 1 left off, with more favourites and the essential live versions of the best of disc 1. 'Dallas 1pm' has a guitar solo that makes grown men weep, and 'Princess of the Night' is guaranteed to give the hairs on the back of your neck a good work out. Disc 2 also has a clutch of tracks from the very underrated 'Power and the Glory' album which are worth a listen.

Disc 3 is a let down. All the stuff on it is competent enough for sure, but it never quite captures the essential edge from the earlier albums. Saying that, it is all worth a listen, and if you are unfamiliar with this era of Saxon's material you will not think any less of the boys for hearing it. The highlight for me is the ridiculous cover of 'Ride Like The Wind' which somehow works, but '747' it isn't.

Buy this album, overall it is very good value, but where is 'Denim and Leather'?.

I recently rediscovered my Saxon collection. Across Vinyl and cassettes and various single etc I have all the stuff on this CD, there are many fine moments indeed but it's 2007 and I haven't got a cassette player in the car anymore so this cheap box set was too good to miss! The track listing on Amazon is wrong but the quality is undisputed. The first Cd covers the 'Saxon' to 'Strong Arm' era including big chunks of all three albums. Wheels of Steel and Strong Arm of the Law being particularly good albums. This is a 5 star CD in itself. The second Cd starts with the rest of the 'Strong Arm' era leading through to 'Power & the Glory' via 'Denim & Leather' and 'The Eagle has Landed' Unfortunately its at this point 1982/3 that things start to go array as Saxon go a bit soft in their approach, presumably for the american market. The third Cd covers 'Crusader' to 'Destiny' a wierd period during which Saxon went all AOR and, probably due to the trend at the time, glammed up their image. Stranger still Paul Quinn got hair after years under a cap ( and now bandana!) - no offense Paul. It's this period which sounds seriously dated now with only a handful of tracks Krakatoa and Red Alert showing glimmers of past highs. In summary though, a corking collection but there is a double CD of Wheels of Steel and Strong Arm of the Law CDs available which may well be a better bet AND get the elusive fifth star.

Value for money or what, at current prices ,certainly, the best of Saxon across 3 discs,spanning 1979 thru 88,no need for a track by track account,all you need to know are that discs 1 & 2 contain the bands finest from saxon(1979) thru to Power and Glory (1983) and will be the most played, Disc three covers '84 to '88,as such has less of an impact as those albums weren't as good.

Typical of the way Saxon were treated by EMI,the booklet is ok, nothing too expansive,most fans will learn very little they didnt already know.The sound quality is excellent,a definite improvement on the original cd's.

Having purchased the set on the day of release,i can confirm that 'Denim and Leather' was not 'Missed off' and 'Midnight Rider' incorrectly included,the original release never listed 'Denim and Leather' as included ,either on the slipcase,rear cd cover or booklet,ALL listed two versions of 'Midnight Rider' ,one studio and one live version.My copy isn't unique as a mate bought his at the same time,same track listing.Several months down the line 'Denim and Leather' was included in the next set of pressings.It seems quite bizarre that the initial compiling would miss off such a celebrated track,but that was indicative of EMI's commitment to Saxon.

This is a great collection as it stands,even better if yours includes 'Denim and Leather.

While this best of album is great in price and quantity of song and displays some of the best songs by the band I was dissapointed by the second disc having a track listing error and instead of Denim and Leather (one of my favourites)there was Midnight Rider (Live). Had it not been for this it would be a 4.

All the usual songs here, but barely enough good ones in my oppinion to fill one disc let alone three. One reviewer said that disc three was not as good as the others, but i found that disc three was better than disc two with better construction of the songs and less wandering lead work.

Great Compilation but be aware there is NO Denim and Leather song on disc2,a printing error?....such a shame to leave off the cd,Midnight Rider (Live) is the accidental? replacement song so if you are transferring it to your mp3 player or other gadget please edit the songs on disc 2.Well worth a Fiver this is though.

Saxon's greatest hits is a must for any heavy rock music fan, after seeing the band and buying there albums back in the eighties i kind of forgot how good Saxon really are and how many hit rock singles they actually brought out.
a must for rockers of all ages.
