  This four-CD collection contains all seven albums that Ian & Sylvia recorded with Vanguard. Also included are three bonus tracks, “Keep on the Sunny Side,” “Je t’aime Marielle,” and an alternate take of “Rocks and Gravel.” It includes a great 80-page booklet with dozens of beautiful photos, complete credits, images of the original album covers, and an essay by Colin Escott based on interviews with Ian and Sylvia. One drawback is that the original album notes are not included. Also, One might have expected a more attractive cover!
