4 stars A superbly packaged compilation of all three of National Health's studio albums on two discs, with informative and witty liner notes courtesy of Dave Stewart himself. Having Stewart's remeniscences to read as you listen brings you a whole other level of appreciation of National Health's output; they clearly produced this music at a time of great hardship, when the very industry that produced them showed them little more than outright hostility.

The cover art is (frankly) uninspired, and the bonus tracks are a tad inessential (the abbreviated "Paracelsus" has been made redundant with the release of MISSING PIECES, and Stewart's solo synth remake of "The Collapso" seems a bit pointless). Minor complaints, though, this is for me an invaluable collection. Every home should have one.
