While I can't confirm the copy protection issue reported elsewhere, I CAN say this is a pretty good summary of his work.

It's not just a good collection of his comedy songs such as Tie Me Kangaroo, Jake the Peg and Maximillian Mouse, but also shows off some of his Australian "folk" songs such as Wild Rover and Waltzing Matilda as well as some others of his eclectic styles from the gentle Fijian Girl through to his recent bizarre Led Zep cover of Stairway to Heaven.

But how can a "Best Of" NOT feature his UK number 1 "Two Little Boys???" There are plenty of other best of compilations, so you may want to try Disky's compilation "Best of Rolf Harris".

This CD has EMI copy protection.

I bought it for my son to listen to in the car - it doesn't work.

Please be aware when buying this product that it is not a CD (as defined by the Red Book standard) so beware of buying it.

Mr Rolf Harris is one of those true genius artists who have given us such a wealth of varied and interesting work. Not only funny, kind, generous and talented as a human being, but always impressively original - he seems in my mind to continually reside on the outskirts of our conciousness occasionally arriving on the scene to offer us a part of his remarkable repertoire...

...and what a joy it was when my daughter, needing a track for her school performance (Sun arise) that I downloaded his 'Best of' album to be so pleasantly reminded of his scope and capabilitity as a celebrity - a genuine celebrity, genuinely talented - and a genuine man - how refreshing!

Markus.

I bought this to play to my children via our computer, but in tiny writing on the 'CD' it tells you that it won't play on a lot of computers (and it won't play on mine). We don't own a CD player. This kind of Digital Rights Management (DRM) is soooo last century. C'mon EMI - grow up.

I guess that my kids will never have the chance of hearing Jake the Peg, I've lost my mummy, and Tie me kangaroo down (not from this 'CD' anyway). That's a shame.

What a total waste of money. Rolf should step in and sort this out - he's capable of anything, isn't he?

'Two little boys' is also absent. Why?

My advice? Buy something else.

The version of "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport" featured on this compilation is the censored one. I was livid when I first heard this but have calmed down somewhat. Apparently Rolf had to re-record this song back in the early 1960s after a few people in Singapore got upset over the Aboriginal reference. That verse is gone now thanks to the PC brigade. Having said that, the rest of the cd is great fun. "Two Little Boys" was never a favorite of mine so I don't mind that it isn't included here... and what IS here is prime Rolf.

Decided to buy some Rolf while I could, after recent events his music will probably be hard to get hold of. That aside, this is a good compilation but loses a star because it's missing his biggest hit, "Two Little Boys". What were they thinking?!

this is a good budget collection of rolf's hits
I grew up listening to these on the radio
this omits his biggest success two little boys
which is available as a 99p download
I bought this now because his cds will probably all be deleted
then the price of them can only rise
because of the truth about his private life
you can't blame the music for his mistakes
any money he makes from it should go to charity

Very enjoyable listening from this talented man. When ordering I didn't notice that "Two Little Boys" was not featured in this CD and was a little disappointed as I assumed that, as one of his most popular and better known hits, it would be there, but that was my mistake.
