AllMusic Review by

After years of anonymity even within avant-garde and noise circles, Z'ev gained a modicum of recognition with this deluxe two-disc retrospective. With a book that's over 100 pages long, plus photos, discography and included interviews, Ghost of One Foot in the Grave naturally documents the artist's decades of recordings better than anything yet released. Many of the earlier songs here (especially the live ones) appear to lose a bit in the translation from performance to playback, resulting in a series of somewhat inferior tracks on the first disc. The abundance of excellent works here does make up for the lack of early quality material, but Ghost of One Foot in the Grave may not be the best place to start for beginners.
