Argent deserves better

"Some serious issues with this release.
It's the epitome of budget hour.
Skimpy short and there are absolutely no liner notes or credits whatsoever.
In addition, this was released not long after CD's came out so sonically it's very lacking and in desperate need of a remaster.
Argent needs an updated Anthology that improves the audio and adds a few cuts that better represent the band.

"Originally released in 1976, The Argent Anthology is a direct re-issue of the LP. It is not remastered and it has no bonus tracks. While this was good enough at the time, I can think of few bands in need of a remastered "best of" more than Argent.
Nevertheless, there are some excellent songs here (besides the classic Hold Your Head Up). Tragedy is a funky little number and Pleasure could have appeared on a Zombies record.
A revamped Anthology is needed. This single-disc compilation would have to include: Liar, Dance in the Smoke, Bring You Joy, Celebration, Rejoice, Pleasure, God Gave Rock & Roll to You, It's Only Money, Pt. 1 & 2, Hold Your Head Up, Tragedy and Pure Love/Fantasia/Prelude/Pure Love/Finale.
I suggest waiting for a proper collection.
Far From the Best

"Of course, I am going to fall even farther afield than some of the other opinions here, but I really like the Argent albums after Russ Ballard left, "Circus" and "Counterpoints" which were Argent at their most zealously progressive. Since no songs from that period are included here, this is, indeed, anything but a best of compilation."
