A compilation of classic performances from 1983 to the present, fully remastered and featuring many previously unreleased tracks, includes selected highlights from sessions for John Peel, David Jensen, Janice Long, Phil Jupitus, Bob Harris, Tom Robinson & more, and offers a fascinating chronological perspective on the development of one of the UK's most beloved entertainers. The collection draws from all corners of Billy's catalogue and features, among many gems, his signature song ‘A New England' (later covered to huge acclaim by Kirsty MacColl), ‘Levi Stubbs' Tears', and his workers' anthem ‘There Is Power In A Union', with a couple of atypical covers thrown in, namely John Cale's ‘Fear Is A Man's Best Friend' and ‘A13', his personal psycho-geography take on ‘Route 66'. All of these and more paint a picture of a British national treasure plying his trade at a British institution and making the world a better place in the process.
