The transition from original recordings to digital is crisp and clear, if a little sibilant, and really dramatizes Jim's wondeful balladeering. The Blizzard remains endearingly haunting in it's simple, but powerful story telling, and no collection would be complete without "He'll have to Go". Unfortunately though, however good this album is, it is annoyingly short, how an album can be packaged as "best of" with only 8 tracks! and a total playing time of under 30 minutes tends to leave you feeling sold short and wanting more. The truth is that there are equally good albums available with many more of Jims multitude of hits and great ballads, and though they may lack a little in sound quality, they are much better value for money.
