The Gathering is a five-disc, career-spanning compilation album by British melodic rock band Magnum, released in 2010[needs update] by Sanctuary Records. It features previously unreleased live recordings, rare demos, b-sides and a live recording from Hammersmith Odeon, from 1988's Wings of Heaven tour.

"It wasn't enormous", said guitarist Tony Clarkin of his involvement. "I wanted a few tracks taken off, and I came up with the title… It turned out to be a really nice package."[1]
