AllMusic Review by

Recall's two-disc Ewan MacColl anthology, Antiquities, collects 29 tracks from the folk legend, all of which are taken from the CD reissues of Cooking Vinyl's Naming of Names -- Topical Songs and Black and White, both of which were recorded between 1972 and 1986. All of the material is excellent, with an emphasis on blue-collar workers, bold seamen, doomed lovers, and politics and society.
