This box-set brings tracks to the listeners with which they may not be familiar. It is a departure from the popular tunes with which we associate the artist. And this is far from a bad thing.Some of Christy's finest recordings can be found on this album. Some are raw and fierce, some beautiful and soothing, all dripping with natural talent and intelligence. It is a timeline of the artist's life, and the perfect accompanyment to his book "One Voice". The time has come for fans to depart from the safe, popular tunes, and buy this set.
