Most of these tracks - culled from her period at Arista and Ariola during the 1970s and early 1980s - are available elsewhere. But this is worth buying, if only for the 4 tracks from 'Hacienda View', an album that really deserves issuing in its entirety. Much of what she did during this time was aimed squarely at the pop charts - such as the rather silly covers of 'It's In His Kiss' and 'Baby I'm Yours' but there are some gems here including the wonderful 'Remember The Days Of The Old Schoolyard'. Apparently, Linda Lewis had input on the track listing. I wish she could have convinced BMG to have tried harder with the packaging. The inlay could hardly be less flimsy and the liner notes are fine if a bit lightweight. This is not the cheapest of budget issues and the consumer is being slightly shortchanged outside of its obvious musical merit. The Warner Reprise CD of her earlier 1970s recordings is all together a better production. An artist who deserves a better reissue programme.

Apparently, these tracks were selected by Ms. Lewis herself, so we can thank the great lady for such a wonderful selections of songs. Of particular delight to her many fans must be the inclusion of four tracks from her 1979 gem of an album Hacienda View, all appearing on CD for the first time. Long may the Linda Lewis revival continue. She truly is the best and most underrated of British singers.

Some of her earliest releases were dreadful (rock a doodle do, etc) and caused considerable damage to her early career, although her talent wasn't in much doubt. Happily these are all excluded.

Included here, are four tracks from the Hacienda album (first time on CD), and tracks such as the wonderful 'I'd be surprisingly good for you'. This was easily the best version of many, of the Evita track.

The tracks vary from pretty ordinary to very good. Give this a spin and you will probably want to add it to your collection.
