This collection, marking the end of John Wetton's association with E.G. Records, is a somewhat skewed compilation of his work in the seventies. Five songs by U.K., five from his first solo album, one track listed as coming from the one album from his seventy-nine one-off band Jack-Knife (the track isn't listed on sites I can find for the album, so I presume it was left off of the LP), and, strangely, only two tracks by King Crimson (and only one of these was on the original LP version). For the most part, the sonds tend toward Wetton's pop side, a direction he was heading in when U.K. was declining. At least the U.K. songs have a small amount of prog in them. The songs from "Caught In The Crossfire" are just a small hair better (for the most part) than the AOR drivel Wetton created in Asia.

The better songs are In The Dead Of Night, from U.K.'s debut, and Starless (the track not on the LP) dfrom King Crimson's "Red".

Eyesight To The Blind by Wetton's Jack-Knife (which also included Richard Palmer-James) is worth hearing just because it's so different from any other version I know of, but only adds slight value to this collection.
