Yeah, I would be tempted too.

I don't know this album but I know the title track and I assume it also has Scarlet O'Hara on it, both of which I really like.

I like the cover too.

Diamonds may have the distinction of being the only ever UK number 1 with a drum solo. I'd be very interested to hear if there were any others.

But anyway, you mention that there are 'vocals' on some tracks. I have to admit that that doesn't sound promising.

"Diamonds" I am sure appears on several instrumental comps, it's a big one. But the vocals, good god. If you did not like the ageing Joe Bataan vocals, these are "worse", and they make up about half the tracks. Had it been one or two, I could live with them, but not half.

It had never occurred to me that they would even try singing. I suppose I'm going to have to check it out, just to satisfy my curiosity, but I totally believe you that they'll be very bad.

I ordered it because I am a Shadows fan. I had not expected any vocals.

Played this comp early this morning. I really don't like any of it now. Not my bag at all. So I will trade in all my Tull.

Ha ha, this is just hopeless. Take a good look at yourself, indeed. Then ask yourself, do I really need this?

You picked the wrong Heep albums. There's only one you need

"About Time", they call this one. I agree, it's about time to dump it:

When I was a kid I had the UH albums "Magicians Birthday" and "Live January 1973"
By age 18 in 1978 I realised they had to go if I was to maintain any level of musical credibility.
Fortunately a long haired deaf friend bought them from me.
