Absolutely fabulous collection of songs. So good that, IMHO, the second disc - which has the more "obscure" songs - gets just as much air play from me as the other disc with their more popular material. In particular, some people have dissed "Peace Train" but their rendition (second disc) of this song may be just as good as Cat's. Highly recommended for its easy listening even if you're not a 10,000 Maniacs fan.
Listening to this 2-CD set makes it clear just how bad radio is today! A 10,000 Maniacs song would never be played on the radio today, squeezed out by another Britney Spears or Justin Timberlake song. The songs are remastered and sound great, and the packaging and liner notes are insightful and interesting to read. If there's any complaint, it's that some great songs were left off, such as The Painted Desert, Lily Dale, Few and Far Between, and Jezebel, but that's a minor complaint. However, the second disc, full of previously unreleased or hard to find b-sides, is the main reason to buy this set- it's the best thing next to an all-new 10,000 Maniacs CD that we'll ever get. Peace Train, Let the Mystery Be, To Sir With Love, Everyday is Like Sunday and the rest are the perfect antidote to the state of popular music today.
I bought it because it was not expensive and I really liked "More Than This." I learned that Natlie Merchant is not the singer I appreciate. I just happen to not appreciate this style. If you are a fan, this is a good CD, 31 songs for a good price.
