Originally released on February 26th, 2002.

The album was first released in Denmark as "The Danish Collection", then further released in UK, Spain, France... Cover and title seemed to have slightly differences depending on which country it was released. Inlay notes had some typos.

Third compilation by Virgin (previous were "The Complete" and "Elements"). Only two tracks are of interest for collectors, "Pictures In The Dark" released here for first time on CD and the mix of "Pran's Theme" parts 1 and 2 joined together.

Produced by Mike Oldfield except CD1 tracks 1,2,3 (Newman/Heyworth/Oldfield), CD1 tracks 13,14 and CD3 tracks 9,10 (Tom Newman), CD1 track4 and CD2 track 7 (Newman/Oldfield), CD2 tracks 1,10,11,12,14,15 (Oldfield/Phillips), CD2 tracks 4,5,6 (David Hentschel), CD2 track 9 (Oldfield/Hentschel), CD3 track 1 (Horn/Oldfield/Newman), CD3 track4 (Oldfield/Newman/Shacklock), CD3 track 6 (Oldfield/Cretu), CD3 tracks 7,8 (Oldfield/Lazerus.

Originally released on March 13th, 2006.

This compilation seems to be done in a hurry, booklet has a few typos and mismatches, audio editing is not very accurate and some tracks like "Don Alfonso" has poor mono quality sounding like a faulty vinyl drop (Martin Bartosik's drop is by far superior and is in stereo as can be listened in my private Rarities Collection). Tracks taken from "Platinum", "QE2", "Five Miles Out", "Crises", "Discovery", "The Killing Fileds" and "Earth Moving" claim to proceed from the 2000 HDCD digital remaster made by Virgin. The version of "Heaven's Open" is mislabeled not being the 12" single remix but ordinary album version. "Legend" is hidden song as it is included in the same track as "Evacuation" (running time: 07:37) not mentioned anywhere in the booklet.

Fourth compilation by Virgin, the second in four years. At least this time it's of real interest for collectors as it includes for first time on CD several extended versions and different mixes. Curiously, regular version of "Shine" is still unreleased on CD format.
