October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

Great package of guitar-oriented stuff here. Schenker fans will love it.

Cualquier banda que cuente con la voz de Grahan Bonnet, tiene el 90% de probabilidades de ser un clįsico...

From: Rene Date: November 21, 2004 at 14:34
Yessssss, this best of is a killer. Many of the great MSG songs are on this album like LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE, ROCK MY NIGHTS AWAY or ARMED AND READY. Not only for MSG fans this is good. this is great for any hard rock/metal lover from the early 80s. If you like a mix between SCORPIONS, RAINBOW, UFO and GILLAN, then you will like this best of by MSG.

Just got this one today. I was never too familiar with MSG, particularly their early work.The keyboard-drenched later stuff like "Anytime" and 'Never-ENding Nightmare" are absent, but what we do have is pretty damn good, and it's no surprise it sounds a lot like UFO, with maybe some hard-rockin' Priest thrown in.

From: Buitre Date: April 27, 2009 at 4:46
Nice compilation of MSG classics, very good & recomended to everybody who want's to make an approach to the band...I prefer the old songs as they sound quite close to UFO or Scorpions. All in all a good selection of songs.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 19, 2015 at 22:13
Very cool compilation with some of Michael's best shots...tracks 1,2,5,7,8,9(fave and best),10,11,12,13(instrumental)& 14 are the ones in my book...88/100
