Customer Review

on October 11, 2013
It's a nice collection, I haven't really kept up with any of the other releases that may have included the same material, but for me this all gathers together a collection neatly (apart from Pinball Wizard which is just incredibly awful and sticks out like a sore thumb and shouldn't be here). I have divided the collection into two halves in my player, the throwaway versions of Maggie May, You Wear It Well with the make it up as you go along lyrics don't really need to be listened to more than once, pure novelty value, and the other early versions of tracks from Never A Dull Moment don't do much for me. The best tracks are the likes of Country Comforts, So Tired and You Put Something which have a delightfully weary but charming feel to them and Rod sings them so well. This was his golden era, I was in my early teens when Never A Dull Moment was released and that LP with its gatefold sleeve was just 'the ultimate' at the time and every time I listen to it I'm transported back. This set is a nice addition to the collection but only 3 stars because half of the tracks only get one listen and are purely curiosities. Where did it all go wrong for Rod? In a word - 'Sailing'. Let's remember the good times :-)
