This collection of music by NYJO spans many incarnations of the band and was variously recorded between 1975 and 2000. The collective personnel are consequently too numerous to list here. Much of the material is previously unreleased with the exception of Disc 4 which is predominately the same as the NYJO album “Portraits”.

This collection was rightly described as “the bargain of the year” in the press as it retails at £10-15 in the shops.
