actually this is the best compilation (together with "The EMI Years") ever released in terms of sound and contents.differently from the 2009 remasters (of shame) all tracks have been mastered by Andy Pierce (so "no overclipped sound" and no kind of additional effects) and contains some B side for any album and includes "Suzie Hold On original 1983 version from US edition of "Power & The Glory).A must to have for any true Saxon's Fan
