Prog Rock at its best!
on 11 February 2014
This is an excellent 'best of' album from one of the best British prog rock bands of the 60's and 70's, they are up there with Yes, the Moody Blues and Genesis, high acclaim indeed. This band were very popular across Europe and still are. There work is of very high quality but they are a little different to both Yes and the Moody Blues as a lot of their sings were based around social comment and issues at the time. I don't feel that this dates their work but then I am a little biased!
This album showcases some of BJH's more popular work including a live version of their classic 'Mockingbird' which if I remember correctly was their encore piece at the concerts where I saw them live. I am not 100% sure who this album will appeal to because if you are a fan you probably already have a number of the tracks.
Unique guitar sound combined with a Neil Young type vocal with a touch of the orchestral thrown in, it was a wonderful era and I think that there work has stood the test of time. Good value, excellent stuff recommended purchase!
