5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye dry eyes 23 July 2013
By GlynLuke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This magnificent, generous compilation features at least two songs so beautiful I want to shout from the rooftops how good they are, and tell everyone they should hear them.
One is Tom`s own classic No Regrets, later successfully covered as a comeback single by The Walker Brothers. It`s a `don`t worry about me, I`m perfectly alright` lost love song, which would move a stone. In the first verse he sings:

I know your leavin`s too long overdue
For far too long I`ve had nothin` new to show to you
Goodbye dry eyes, I watched your plane
Fade off west of the moon
And it felt so strange
To walk away alone

It`s one of the saddest songs I`ve ever heard, and one of the most moving.
The other essential song here is an early version, long before she recorded it, of Joni Mitchell`s wonderful Urge For Going. Not even Joni herself made as much of the song`s restless imagery as Tom, with his deep rich baritone.

I get the urge for goin`
But I never get to go

There is a third reason to acquire this sensitively compiled selection from various periods of Tom`s career: a great song called Lost My Driving Wheel, by David Wiffen. It cropped up in the sixties on one of those CBS Rock Machine Turns You On LPs, and I`ve never forgotten it.
One thing you never forget once you hear it is that voice. Rush tended to do covers of others` songs, and he chose well, giving Joni, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor a welcome boost at the outset of their careers by recording their songs. One reason he always sounded so authentic is the soulfulness of his dark brown voice, which sounded, even back in the sixties, like a man with plenty of experience and the vocal authority to match.

3.0 out of 5 stars don't rush to buy this 10 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tom Rush was a constant presence on the turntable in my flat in the 60s . There was the magnificent Circle Game and the Electra one with Do Re Mi and Panama Limited . He was one of a seemingly endless flow of folkie talents coming out of America in those days . As John Major would have said , I was not inconsiderately delighted to find him when idly browsing through Amazon one wet afternoon . The album was slid into the Marantz within ten minutes of arriving and I laid back waiting for the memories to wash over me . It did not happen because this is a mediocre compilation . The sleeve claims it is a magnificent document - er not by a long chalk , squire . It opens with a unique version of San Francisco Bay Blues in that I did not know it was possible to be recorded while inside an Ikea wardrobe . Kids These Days is karaoke Captain Beefheart . Two stars are added to the one I had in mind Since Urge For Going and No Regrets are included . They come from The Circle Game and that is the one to buy . Avoid this mess .

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY BEST OF TOM RUSH: NO REGRETS 27 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The album is excellent, it varies, in my opinion, from country rock, to folk, to blues. But the best track by far is 'No Regrets'. It's what I actually bought for and it doesn't disappoint.

Tom Rush is a very underated singer/song writer. Brilliant.
