AllMusic Review by

The most comprehensive single-disc collection of Procol Harum's classic early material, featuring tracks from the band's first four albums, important single A- and B-sides, and two rare outtakes from the sessions for the first album. From the classic "A Whiter Shade of Pale" to the classical "A Salty Dog" to the blues-rocking "Whiskey Train," this anthology contains much (but not all) of the band's finest work -- although its sound quality has been eclipsed by more recent reissues of this material on the Repertoire and Westside labels.
