This anthology is sadly lacking in that regard on Disc Two : "Denim and Leather", although listed,is nowhere to be found on Disc 2 and the songs are off by one by the tracklist on the booklet (i.e. "Midnight Rider" is actually "Motorcycle Man [live]...and so on) Someone dropped the ball big time and I know a certain used CD store that is going to get a new Saxon best-of very soon. Very disappointed! I expect better and whomever was in charge of compiling this collection was asleep at the switch.

Great except for one serious flaw... March 3 2007
By S. SMITH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great comp, great sound, great price. All the charting singles are here along with a generous helping of album tracks. However, there is one glaring omission...WHERE THE HECK IS THE TITLE TRACK FROM "DENIM AND LEATHER"? Although not one of their hits, it is surely one of their most beloved anthems. I simply can't believe that it didn't make it on this collection. Other than that, this set is rock solid.

Saxon is a must have for any Metal fan of the 80s. April 21 2008
By D. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is some of the greatest Metal that Saxon had to offer. It not only has multiple CD's, but over 40 songs to boot. With the release of a new Saxon album in 2007, this would be a great compliment to anyone wanting great Metal from an amazing Metal band. As a radio DJ with my own Metal show, I bought this to let my listeners enjoy what i have been enjoying from Saxon for years. All the best in one package, you can't go wrong. And it won't break the bank either to buy this set. This would save you alot of cash from having to buy all the past albums if you are on a budget, but even if you aren't I suggest buying all of them along with this set just for fun....

A long overdue compilation May 16 2007
By Don - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very good 3 cd box set of Saxon's first ten years worth of singles (every single up to 1988). All the tracks are remastered and sound great . It is available at a very reasonable price , in most cases under $30.00 . It is full of all Saxon's classic singles and b sides . Still with all of their singles contained here it is still missing some great Saxon songs , but for the price you still get your monie's worth. I do hope they release another one covering the years after 1988 .

Wow. Nov. 14 2007
By Daniel E. Westover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I write this review, because I feel guilty. My first experience with Saxon was when the opened for Iron maiden, and absolutely blew them off the stage. This was on the Power and the glory tour, and i thoroughly enjoyed all the material up to that point . . . then, they released Crusader, and it seemeed like the band had totally wussed out. Covering Christopher Cross? Please . . .

So, when I bought the greatest hits Cd, I was expecting two discs of greatness, and one that would rarely grace my CD player. Boy, was I wrong. The first two (early) CDs are predictably great, but the third contains a selection of songs that, for the most part, rock really hard and stack up to Saxon's best early material.

This is an exceptional set of tunes, and very reasonably priced. My only complaints: the omission of their excellent coverr of Sweet's "Set Me Free" and my guilty pleasure of "This Town Rocks" from The Power and the Glory.

3 CDs ? Aug. 15 2009
By Gerstenberg II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This three cd set does cover 20 years of Saxon. But except for the classics from the first 5 Saxon cds"LPs" this item is full of fluff. Great songs include, Dallas 1 pm, Denim & leather, Power and the glory, wheels of steel, and Crusader to name a few. There are also live versions of some of the classics. The biggest problem I have is the drums sound very hollow. I know Saxon never had great production, but I think the analog to digital transfer could have been done much better. One more thing, just like all greatest hits collections they always leave one or two "GREAT" songs of the list, in this case it is The Eagle has landed, one of Saxons greatest songs.
