Somebody knows a version that Side D is different, bringing an Oscar Peterson's songs?

it should be noted that my copy says “Coda from Larks Tongues In Aspic Part 2” when it’s actually Part 1

worth the price of admission alone just for the booklet!

An absolutely classic collection here featuring so many of KC's standout moments.
It's pointless listing my listing all of the tracks that I like as most people who are reading this will know all of the material anyway, but just for the hell of it I'm going to go with 'Starless' as my favourite; such a moody track that builds to marvellous crescendo.

It's a wonderful collection and if you can't find/afford to buy the individual albums, this is the way to go.
Simply brilliant! 👌👍

I have/had the cassette version of this release. It came with the booklet and rapped like a LP with a little cut out for the cassette... and it was one cassette. So it was missing some tracks. Not sure which. Gonna have to find it. But I know it had the female vocal version of "I talk To The Wind".
