  • A good song selection and according to the reviewers, well remastered and carefully placed in the right order. However, it should be noted that like Genesis and Deep Purple, Heeps career was divided by a change of singers. Also, Ken Hensley, the driving force behind the best Heep songs, left somewhere in the late seventies. This virtually put the band in the hands of remaining founder member Mick Box.
    Almost all of disc 2 is about Heep after David Byron and the material is not half as strong as before. If that is no objection to you, this is a good overview of a band that managed to survive for more than forty years – an admirable achievement!
    If you prefer the music Heep produced in the Byron/Hensley years, get Classic Heep.
