No Astral Weeks???!!!!!!???!!!!
on 2 November 2007
Don't get me wrong, there are some fantastic songs on this set, but to completely miss out what is arguably and certainly critically the man's best work is inexplicable. Surely 'Sweet Thing' could have replaced that terrible duet with Cliff Richard for starters. Even the box set version doesn't have any songs from his most famous album, it's baffling. Nice to have the addition of 'Crazy Love' which was missing from the 80's Best Of, but that's still a stronger collection. It's a much better idea to get all the albums from Astral Weeks to Veedon Fleece. They're all essential and you'll no doubt buy them after hearing this collection anyway, so save yourself some money and time.
