AllMusic Review by

A two-LP label sampler from the nascent Vertigo label -- Polygram's answer to EMI's progressive -- psychedelic boutique, Harvest. Overall, for a label sampler, this was a better than average double slab of vinyl, with tried-and-true heavy cuts (from Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Juicy Lucy, May Blitz) jostling for space with lighter stuff (Magna Carta, Dr. Strangely Strange). Rod Stewart turns up as well, with an early solo outing on "Handbags and Gladrags."
