72 songs, 5 hours of music, covering 5 decades of high-powered songwriting from one of Britain's finest songwriters. Plus an 80 page booklet. Leon Rosselson has been at the forefront of songwriting in Britain for over 50 years. No other British songwriter has written so many finely-crafted songs over so many years, covering such diverse subjects and using such a variety of forms. The songs on this box set - from early sixties' songs like 'Tim McGuire' to the 2010 'Where Are the Barricades?' - range from the lyrical to the satirical, from the personal to the political, from the humorous to the poignant; from children's songs to love songs to pungent political comment. And because they have something to say about the times in which they were written, there are copious notes on the political and personal environments that formed them along with some pointed observations on the craft of songwriting. Among the host of accompanying musicians are Frankie Armstrong, Roy Bailey, Billy Bragg, Martin Carthy, Liz Mansfield, Fiz Shapur, Dave Swarbrick and the Oyster Band.
