A collection of great songs from the hard rockers from their golden era on EMI, including "Wheels Of Steel", "Denim & Leather", "Strong Arm Of The Law", "Heavy Metal Thunder" and many more. Clocking in at almost 80 minutes, it's a great disc for the money as well! 1991.

"this band has been around at nearly the same time as Iron Maiden but i didnt know that until i stumbled upon a dusty tape saying "Best of Saxon", in a record shop about 10 years ago. while listening to the heavily bluesy intro of "the eagle has landed" and to the amazing Christopher Cross cover (ride like the wind), my opinion about saxon is summed up in 2 words: Hell Yeah. But wait! there's more treats in store! Denim and leather, Broken heroes, 747, princess of the night... Saxon's discography is full of ups and downs; their bad albums are like, really bad while their good albums are simply magnificent, fresh sounding and kick-butt all the way: try "unleash the beast" "solid ball of rock" "innocence is no excuse" or "strong arm metal" and be ready for impeccable, high revving heavy metal. in the meanwhile try getting this compilation which sums Saxon's early years up til '92 and enjoy!!"
A good introduction

"I was listening to this one on the way to work this morning. I find myself doing that a lot. This collection is a good intro, as it has some of their best tracks on here (Denim and Leather, Eagle has Landed, Frozen Rainbow/Midas Touch, Strangers in the Night, Dallas 1pm, Broken Heroes...). I love the studio version of Princess of the Night, though. But, hearing it live should encourage new fans to buy the fantastic 'Denim and Leather' cd.
There are missing tunes here of course, like 'Northern Lady', 'Baptism of Fire', 'Solid Ball of Rock', 'Rock the Nations', 'Do it all for you'..but a new listener will eventually find those if they like this disc, which is a very good first Saxon disc to buy.
