AllMusic Review by

Seventy-five minutes of some of the...damnedest music of the late 1970s. The 22 songs here constitute some highlights of the group's early output, mostly for Chiswick, prior to their joining Bronze, including live versions of "Love Song," "New Rose," "Smash It Up," "Neat Neat Neat," and "I Just Can't Be Happy Today," an anarchic rendition of "Help," their slash-and-shred cover of "White Rabbit," and familiar original fare such as "Dozen Girls," "Bad Time for Bonzo," "Gun Fury," and "History of the World, Pt. 1." The sound is very good, and the collection is a handy one to have, although the notes are a little more stylishly written than informative.
