Volume II concentrates on the more recent `Pop' styling's of the urban folk troubadour with albums `Workers Playtime', `Don't Try this at Home', `William Bloke' and `England, Half English'. The Last of with was also credited to Billy's sometime touring band `The Blokes'. All of these albums are fantastic and `Workers Playtime' and `William Bloke' are definitely amongst my all time favourite albums.
Also included is the bonus DVD `If you've got a guest list I want to be on it' featuring a performance by Billy Bragg and the Reds Stars from the `Don't Try this at Home' tour and a solo performance with guest Ian McLagan, of the Blokes and of course the Faces, on the original `Hope Not Hate' tour. For my money the better of the two shows is the Red Stars performance the only weakness of which is that because the orchestra is build up by introducing the instruments piece meal then the hits are generally played in chronological order. Still with songs this strong it doesn't really matter, every one a winner.

Though there are a lot of bonus materials (offtakes, demos), the missing of the orginal album artworks/liner notes is a big disappointment. For example, the highly characterized graphic depictions in the original CD booklet for each individual tracks of "Don't try this at home" are all but gone.
The 5 stars are for the excellent music here. But as all of them are available separately, one might as well pick up individual packs instead of the whole box. The real bonus material here is the live DVD and the lyrics booklet. The live DVD, which plays for almost 2 hours, captured very well his earlier days (1991) and more recent performance (2002?).
