"the material on this cd is only the tip of the iceberg for a best of cozy. the solo stuff put on this cd is great but thats the problem..its only his solo material. nothing from jeff beck, rainbow(his best work) or whitesnake, msg, etc..too bad, the man was a phenomenal skin smasher whose memory should go beyond whats on this cd."
Not even a bare bones collection, but great music here

"Cozy's work should need to be compiled in a box set maybe, and a very extensive one. He has worked with most of the major british rock and heavy metal bands from the UK, such as Rainbow, Whitesnake, Black Sabbath, Brian May, Jeff Beck, Emerson Lake & Powell, Peter Green, Jon Lord... I't impossible to compile his best work in a single disc. This collection features tracks from only three of his solo albums: "Over the top" (1979), "Tilt" (1981) and Octopuss (1983) All the material is instrumental, with a variety of styles: rock, fusion, blues, progressive rock... and features performances by Jeff Beck, Jon Lord, Gary Moore and Jack Bruce. It's a very musical approach, since there's a lot of top notch drumming. It's mostly musicians music, so it means it's not appealing to some of the fans. Drummers should check this release, or anything by Mr. Powell"
Cozy was one of the greatest drummers!

"this compilation from his solo career is great! they left out EL SID a great tune from over the top. this cd is worth checking out because it shows cozy more as a great musician and not just the bombastic skinsmasher he wasd commonly known for. it's nice to compare the original version of "UP ON THE DOWNS" to the recent KEN SERIO "THROUGH THE GATE" version.his tribute to cozy . RIP COZY WE MISS YOU!"
