4.0 out of 5 stars Decent selection of albums, but not a great one 14 July 2013
What you get here are five Chris DeBurgh albums:

The first three from the late '70s (Spanish Train (excellent), Far Beyond (excellent) and At the End (decent)), one from the mid '80s (the not-great Into the Light, which features his signature song, The Lady in Red), and an adequate best-of compilation from late '90s, Spark to a Flame.

While this isn't a bad set of albums, it would have made much more sense to replace Into the Light with Crusader, his fifth (and probably best) album. That album has much more in common with the first three than does Into the Light, and it's a much better album overall. The slot used by the best-of album, which overlaps with the other albums here, would also be better taken by another original album, and I'd suggest The Getaway since it's from 1982 and close to the time frame of the others. (I'd skip Eastern Wind, which is one of DeBurgh's weakest albums).

At any rate, what's here isn't bad, and it's nice to get the first three in a one-stop-shopping brick, but this could be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong for this price! 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This is really good value. Far Beyond these Castle Walls, Spanish Train and Other Stories and At the End of a Perfect Day take you right back to the early days. For me, Spanish and Far Beyond were the reason I got into Chris De Burgh and they remain essential albums ever since. Far Beyond showed what was to come but didn't quite hit the heights.
Into the Light had to be included because of Lady in Red but I've never warmed to that record especially much. The rest of the album is decent stuff though. Spark to a Flame is sort of an interim Greatest Hits which as one reviewer accurately says misses Crusader out and that isn a great pity because Crusader is an excellent album. But the absence of Crusader from this collection doesn't mean you shouldn't buy this collection - you should. What it means is you need to add Crusader to your shopping list!
