Contrary to what the title implies, this is a collection of rare and previously unreleased tracks by this excellent German prog band. The time frame runs from 1970 through '79, and should be considered essential by all fans. In my opinion, all but one track are winners, and this represents a fine cross section of their typical variety of styles. The original German press was on Schneeball, but this Italian issue seems to have sold far better. I guess their jazz/rock fusion seems to be the most generously featured style offered here, but their version of world music also gets plenty of exposure. Recommended
