If you're already a fan, but like me you own a lot of Frank's music then it's still well worth buying, if you're a fan but you've not got the two records mentioned above a then it's a must. If you're a newcomer then try "Love, Ire and Song" and you'll be converted.
A handful of these studio recorded tunes were already available on either the 'Rock and Roll' EP or the deluxe edition only of 'England Keeps My Bones', and the live tracks are taken from the DVD 'Take To The Road'. The rest are more difficult to track down, and there are two previously unreleased tracks: 'Linoleum' and 'The Slow Train', both of which are cover versions.
Frank always does great covers of varied and interesting songs, and among my favourites here are his affectionate live rendition of the traditional English folk song 'Barbara Allen', his spin on the 1960s pop hit 'Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations, 'Thunder Road' by one of his heroes Bruce Springsteen, and 'The Greatest Day', the Take That song which he recorded for BBC Radio 1 Live Longue, and this live acoustic performance never made it onto any of the compilation albums.
There are of course many excellent originals as well, and my favourites are possibly 'Wanderlust', 'Rock & Roll Romance' and 'To Absent Friends'.
If you're looking for an introduction to the talents of Frank Turner, 'The Second Three Years' is as good as any. I don't think you can go wrong with this man and his music really, because all of his albums are quality.Read more ›
A couple of lesser tracks but a great introduction to Frank.
Once you've bought this, you'll want to buy all his CDs - and you should do.
He's also great live!!

Some interesting cover versions, and good to collect all the odds 'n' sods together. But not essential for the casual fan/listener.Published 10 months ago by Whatley
This is not my kind of music but my daughter loves Frank, so anything by him would get five starsPublished on 9 Oct. 2013 by crooked house
Absolutely love this album, it has to offer everything from covers to original songs, what more could you possibly want?Published on 11 Mar. 2013 by Poppy Davenport
Bought to complete the collection, as there are extra songs on here that aren't on all the other studio albums. Worth buying even for that!Published on 15 Jan. 2013 by A. Keen
