5.0 out of 5 stars bogle and beautiful 4 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
I hadn't heard a whole lot of Eric Bogle before but invested in this as it was in a sale, and what a bargain. Listen to Leaving Nancy (although the studio version is slightly superior) and it will bring tears to the eyes of any young man who has ever left home to work away as I did back in 75. Also listen to If wishes were fishes that is sublime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bogle at his very best 29 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
5 cd's of sheer genius. 60 tracks that include many of Eric's best songs. An absolute delight to listen to. Fascinating liner notes with each separate cd give an insight into the man and his music. If you don't have any of Eric's cd's, this set is a great way to hear a wide cross-section of his work through the years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Singing the Spirit Home 14 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Eric Bogle is one of those singer songwriters who does some great stuff and some that is, frankly, quite dire. Some of the funny songs are really great: Chihuahua with an out of proportion sex drive, the Aussie BBQ etc., and many of the "message" songs are wonderful. Sadly, some make my toes curl. He does make good and imaginative use of sound, so let's praise the other musicians too! This set of CDs is a mixed bag, but I think it worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has he made a bad one ?? 17 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
I doubt it. I don't have this in particular,but I do have 55 of the 60 tracks on various other albums,both vynil and CD's.If you have a soul this man will move you to tears with some of his songs,others are humorous.I would probably give anything he made 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars An unsung hero of folk 16 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eric is known for his evocative protest songs, and he has written some of the finest examples of that genre, but there is more to his talent than that. He can also be very funny indeed. Try 'Little Gomez', a tale of a particularly randy little dog, or "Do You Know Any Dylan?" and you'll soon see what I mean.

Add in a hefty romantic streak and a dose of melancholy and you have a rewarding set.

The CDs in this set are a little over three quarters of an hour long each, so there's a lot of music here. But there's plenty of variety of style and expression to stop it getting stale.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wonderful songs; inspiring lyrics, music and singing. Each song has a message and gives food for thought. Very well packaged, received within few days. I am now a real Eric Bogle fan.
