3 stars Any takers?

Good grief, yet another repackaging of BJH's early tracks. At least here "Mocking bird" appears in its full glory, and the music is of an unquestionably high quality, but do we really need these tracks to be re-bundled yet again?

Each of the four Harvest label albums is represented by two or three tracks, although arguably it's not always the best ones which have been selected. These are joined by three from the "Early morning onwards" compilation, and a couple from the same period which lay unreleased until more recently.

Quite who might now wish to invest in this collection is not obvious. The music it contains is of course good, but those to whom it appeals will surely already have what it contains in some form or other.
