The Essential Collection [Varese] Review

by Gregory McIntosh

Essential Collection serves as the middle ground of Sons of the Pioneers collections; that is, with 42 tracks, it is about double the size of most Sons of the Pioneers collections, but not even close to the size of the toiled-over Bear Family box sets. All the hits are here, as they should be, but the addition of so many more obscure tracks is what makes this overview a great find albeit perhaps a bit too large a set for the curious, and not adequate enough for the serious collectors.
