As a big fan of Loudon Wainwright as a singer, songwriter and live performer I've wished so often for his recordings subsequent to the first two albums to be re-recorded as solo acoustic numbers. Loudon's achilles heel has been the ersatz soft-rock arrangemnets on so many of his recordings, that have taken away the edge of solitary intensity that is a large part of what makes Loudon special, of what makes him more than just a smart wit.

But he's gone and done the opposite and rerecorded his early solo masterpieces as soft-rock numbers. Booh!

Great songs - buy the original versions.

The thing is that Loudon Wainwright III had, and still has, an ability to touch on feelings way before time.

I have all the tracks on this CD on vinyl, bought years and years ago. They were delivered in Loudon's young voice, at least an octave higher, free of the ageing process. Then, while people older than me might have thought the songs pretentious, formed by someone who couldn't have had the experience to know what he wrote about, they hit the spot for me.

Hearing these old friends again, in his grown up voice, brings new resonance to the collection. In fact, it reminds me that not only did Loudon know what he was singing about, he knew it well. This collection is a vindication of his authenticity.

The first time I heard 'School Days' and Mr Wainwright the third's nasally whiney voice I was still fourteen and hanging out with Adam Dale who had ginger crimped long hair that matched the wrippley soles of his monkey boots. He also had significantly more interesting tastes in music than me. But 'School Days' and ' Muse Blues' were songs to ponder and sing along with in the backwaters of lads living in Hertfordshire (a back water all of its own) but we managed to disturb the dust motes in teenage boy bedrooms with such gems. And by Harry, we did! Loudon and the Pink Fairies but that is another story. But those earlier versions were as stripped down as you could get and we kind of liked the droll moodiness of the atonal troubadour. Now this compilation is ok, revisiting these songs is not a hardship and a good reminder that Mr Loudon furrowed his own unique musical track and was the master of odd quirk-not a bad place to perform from in this day of over produced bland. But this does not add to the earlier rawness of first encounters but still worth each of the four stars. But the songsmithing is well represented. 'The Man who Couldn't Cry' is the stand out. 13 tracks in all and they stand a listen-although I am not a fan of Loudon's domestic troubadour songs such as 'Be Careful there's a Baby in the House'. Indeed. Nice bit of humour on back cover a grey outline of a dinosaur skeleton...
