AllMusic Review by

The second volume in the Classic Rock Anthology series is a haphazard collection featuring British bands divided among prog rock, arena rock, and heavy metal and recorded live in concert. The 14 tracks include "Child in Time" by Deep Purple, "The Sun Goes Down" by Thin Lizzy, "Return to Fantasy" by Uriah Heep, "The Barbarian" by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and "Heat of the Moment" by Asia. Most listeners would be better served with separate greatest-hits packages by these bands.
