Just saw this on Cherry Red's website (which was foreshadowed in one of John's recent Tweets:

A good cross-section I think-  nice to see JY getting a plug too.

I'm really interested in this previously unreleased song COLD IN THE NIGHT.
I agree it's quite annoying, specially at nights

Nice collection although nothing new here. And the best JW track is missing, Rock of Faith. Was hoping for some new material Or some new/unreleased tracks. Maybe in the near future a new solo effort John?

Hey, Arjan, I agree that Rock of Faith is one of his best tracks, and fortunately, it is included. [smile]. Since I have been collecting these over a 20-plus years time span, it'll be nice to have them on a single set with the same audio level. Fingers crossed for remastered.

A painting day ahead so planning on turning the iPod loose with some JW. Never looked at it that way but
having this collection all EQ'ed and mixed for a collection is going to be really nice. This morning, had a quick run to Asia on the treadmill with a great cross section of the G's spanning all eras of the band going from Go, Gravitas, Ghost of a Chance and Gypsy Soul. All different as can be but the voice is the constant.

Long overdue...I remember how excited I was when Kings Road came out.

How Kool will it be if we got a ton of unreleased BATTLE LINE tracks, and what ever else is John has recorded.

Maybe some unreleased material or bonusctracks on vol. 2 & 3? Or will the next volumes contain groups and collaborations (Asia, Uk, Manzanera, Palmer James, Icon) stuff. Great music off course but all the albums on the shelf...

P.s. noticed that Rock of Faith is on Vol. 1 as well. So overall a great collection of solo material. A treasure to anyone that is new to JW Music!

years and years ago, i called into a British radio show called 'Pandora's Box'. John was the guest, and it turned me on to some great music. i digress...i asked him about a best of or a solo box set, and to paraphrase, he said with licensing etc., it would be hard if not, impossible. but, IMHO, it's not about what is out there. it's about what is NOT out there. anyone heard John's live version of the old Motown standard 'Get Ready'? it's rare stuff like that i want, properly done.

I assume it was a typo, I just hope it's not printed this way on CD.

There is something special about the live acoustic version of Battlelines on Anthology, it has inspired me to listen to Chasing The Deer several times. I think I will watch the film in the next few days. I don't say it very often, but the man is a genius! Long may he continue to work and inspire us all.

I highly recommend the Anthology and while the music speaks for itself, the liner notes are absolutely exceptional. Having seen so many things in print, on the web and in other collections, I trulu enjoyed the notes as they timelined the solo career while the other major projects such as UK, Asia and Icon are milemarkers and not the main events as it should be given the purpose of the collection itself. If ever a prolific solo output warranted so much more recognition, it would be this. Always nice getting a CD and still getting that satisfaction of going through the booklet and liner notes with a smile on your face.

Just bought the cd Studio recordings to complete my JW collection. I wonder, is it remastered or just the same tracks as on the original cd's? Any remastering done?
