Nice . .but it doesn’t include all the singles .. where for example are “The seventh son” or “Rosetta” .. shame about the omissions ..

Mark McKendrick

This on the back of the “The Whole World’s Shaking” boxset…?
The people who would like to buy this will have the ’63 -’66 portion coverd by aforementioned box. Somebody would have been more well advised to have re-issued his catalogue following that box in a similar syle and manner – like the entire CBS catalogue.. them maybe the Island and ‘other’ labels to, say, 1980… and then another with the rest.
Nice box, this… but who is it aimed at..?


I’d like to see the BBC Radio 2 concert from Cheltenham in 2013 get an official release. It was a superb overview of his career with some great guests.

Alan Durrant

Why are there only 7 numbers included from the London Lyceum Concert, there was 15 played on the night and included “Pink Champagne”, would have been much more interesting having one CD devoted entirely to the Live Lyceum gig.


Wot no ‘Rosetta’?

Stan Butler

I say Yeh! Yeh!


At first glance this may appear quite interesting. But after last years box set and the great BGO re-issues there’s not much appeal to this set. Too many gaps and missing tracks. If you bought last years box set the first cd is superfluous. The Go Jazz tracks are totally the wrong choices ie where’s Georgie’s superb version of Moondance? They’ve definitely fallen short here.

Mark McKendrick

I totally agree, Kenny.


Shame there’s no Stock/Aitken/Waterman produced Samba from 1986, definitely one of their classy productions.


Nice to see so little overlap from last year’s “The Whole World’s Shaking” five disc set. Only the first CD in this new set contains material also on the earlier set. It’s disappointing though, that they didn’t just follow the format of the first set, and make this a true companion.

Is this an admission that much of his post-66 work was sub-standard (not worth a re-issue), or do they not have access to everything?
