This compilation leans heavily on the Broken English album, containing its title track, the hit The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan, her version of Lennon's Working Class Hero, Guilt and the controversial Why D'ya Do It.
The album also includes the atmospheric ballad Trouble In Mind, a stunning live version of Times Square (the studio version appears on her Child's Adventure album), the bluesy Strange Weather, the early (1964) version of as Tears Go By, the atmospheric Angelo Badalamenti-produced She and a splendid interpretation of Patti Smith's Ghost Dance.
I am in two minds about the album: it does not offer the best value for money but nevertheless contains some special tracks worth owning. I don't understand why none of the great tracks from Dangerous Acquaintances has been included and only a live version of Times Square. A song like The Blue Millionaire from A Child's Adventure would have fitted perfectly here.
