A career-spanning, 4-CD, 70 plus song box set of the great Richard Thomson that supersedes the earlier compilation, "Watching the Dark." It starts with his first recordings with the groundbreaking English folk-rock band Fairport Convention (whose first 4-5 albums are essential), moves on to his albums with then wife Linda Thompson (two of which are classics), and then covers his fruitful, but somewhat erratic solo career. To the fan who already has much of this material, there are some rare live tracks that make it worthwhile. If you don't already have "Shoot Out the Lights," "I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight," "What We Did On Our Holidays," and "Liege and Lief," start there.

This is a good collection but it's irritating that they edit songs like Calvary Cross. Cutting off Thompson midsolo is pointless. You hear me, Shout Factory?!
