There are some great tunes on this album, with live favourite "Tale Of A Man", "Goin' Home" and "Last Night" being three worth note. "On The Run" does exactly what the liner notes say, gives a snapshot of Jeff Porcaro's brilliance and the general Toto train at full speed. Perhaps not for the casual listeners, but Toto fans should seek this out, if only to get the above mentioned tracks.

This was released to be a die hard-fans-only, but i've heard that it sold more than enough!truth is that the quality of songs is far beyond an ordinary "rare-b-sides--unreleased" compilation.Personal favs, coming home ,last night.Toto are always great -enough said

From: Rycheage Date: June 22, 2003 at 15:17
Highlights include the original version of 'Going Home' with a Steve Lukather guitar lick that I wish was up more in the mix, and the live version of Africa that simply smokes. I would love to see a whole record of that live gig. Awesome use of the South African musicians. There are a few older numbers like 'Tale Of A Man' that are strictly for the die hards, as they reach way back into the years. So Toto fans embrace with love, and for the rest, approach with caution.

This is maybe their best release since Absolutely live.Unfortunately it just doesn't get o much importance because of the hundreds of lives and greatest hits they released in the last few years.Anyway not for the die hard fans.It can be appriciated just as an old Toto album.Great drumming by Porcaro.Great production for a b-sides album as giorgios-greece said.

Una buena muestra del poderío de TOTO. Aqui tenemos la esplendorosa joya de AOR que es "Goin´Home" con Kimball a las voces, esta hiba a ser incluida en el Recopilatorio de 1990, hasta que la compañía empujo para que incluyeran a Byron en la banda (asi metieron esas 4 canciones, pero bueno...); Tenemos también a "Tale Of A Man", que como bien dijo alguien, una de las favoritas de TOTO en directo, alla por esos principios de los 80s cuando sonaban increibles!, y que decir del tema, una cosa...

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: August 21, 2007 at 20:41
impresionante y potencia por los 4 costados con ese estilo TOTO caracteristico; tenemos 2 temas de Joseph Williams, de nivel aceptable; un baladon que es "Right Part Of Me"; la beatlesca "Ms Johnson" y 4 temazos en vivo de los que destacaría "On The Run" con un Lukather apoteósico; "Dave´s Gone Skiing" en onda hard Prog y la version de "Africa" que no esta nada mal. CALIDAD ASEGURADA

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: August 21, 2007 at 20:43
Aaah y mencionar algo: Poner atención a esa sección final instrumental de "Ms Johnson"... puro Pink Floyd!!!... saludos

the best toto compilation is "the essential".2 cd s 32 songs. european version.be careful the american version is different only one cd.

From: ShadowAngel Date: March 23, 2013 at 15:22
I think certain songs on this compilations should've been released back then. Tale of a Man belongs on Hydra, Last Night & In a Word would've made Fahrenheit a lot better and imagine Going Home on Past to Present instead of the Byron crap! Of course not all unreleased songs are great and sometimes they unreleased for a reason. Like Right Part of Me...just bad. The Demo songs are a fun addition as are the live songs. On the Run is awesome and so is the incredible version of Africa. While Dave's gone skiing sounds just like the studio version. I just wonder why they included the fun "Joker's Back" song from their earliest recording sessions. This is a nice compilation for fans.
