AllMusic Review by

The A&M Years is a U.K. import that collects Hoyt Axton's four albums for the label -- Less Than the Song, Life Machine, Southbound, and Fearless -- on two CDs. This period of Axton's career (1973-1976) is often considered his peak as a recording artist, and some of his best-known performances are here, including "Boney Fingers," "When the Morning Comes," "Flash of Fire," and "Geronimo's Cadillac." This package marks the only appearance of his classic A&M material on CD; for some, that may justify its high import price (which, in reality, is no more expensive than these four albums would cost if they'd been reissued domestically on individual CDs).
