Having read the mixed bag of reviews and in light of the fact that I have been replaying this CD in my car of late, I thought it a good opportunity to air my own personal take on this one.
I happen to think that this is an excellent release and whilst you would be unlikely to find any compilation connecting 100% this is, overall, a strong release.
Although this a mix up of UK and US releases the CD has a strong American flavour with a good mixture of rock, country rock and folk. I also have the Pink Island box set which I find has just too many Traffic and Fairport Convention wannabees on it. Jon Savage has excellent taste and I would strongly recommend this release.
