Thid live CD was well worth the wait. Styles galore are explored here ranging from the usual easy listening batch, to rock n roll to soul covers. What about the gospel accapella number that closers this disc. There's anotehr gospel tinged number earlier on this disc which just sounds great. Then there is the George Jones Country number-track 7 on disc 2. Besides the variety, the vocals from James are just great and his background vocalists are quite charming as well. This is even a must purchse for casual fans. Its on my holiday list so put it on yours.

A sweeping, 30-track career retrospective that leaves almost nothing out,Liveis a much more filling meal than the two-partBest Liveseries, each of which contains 12 tracks. Fans will want one or the other of these packages, and will need no further elaboration on their merits. But those who just want a sampler of Taylor's hit songs might want to check this out as well. The best greatest hits package,Classic Songs, is an import, and costs a premium. The domesticGreatest Hitswas compiled in 1976, and misses later tracks. It also features rerecorded versions of some of its songs. This is a better value than the import and offers a better selection than the domestic sampler.--Gavin McNett
