◆本CDについて◆ 

2枚組用ジュエルケース(1mm厚)。ブックレット(全8頁)にDavid Suffによる解説、トラックリスト&クレジット。

シャーリー&ドリー・コリンズが「ハーヴェスト」レーベルに残した録音を集成した二枚組CDです。1969年のLP『アンセム・イン・エデン Anthems in Eden』収録曲と、1970年のLP『ラヴ・デス・アンド・ザ・レディ Love, Death & the Lady』収録曲&アウトテイク4曲、1976年のLP『アマランス Amaranth』(『アンセム』サイド1収録の組曲のリイシューと新録曲で構成)から新たに録音された6曲、さらにシャーリーが参加したアシュリー・ハッチング他による『サン・オブ・モリス・オン Son of Morris On(続モリス・オン)』と、アルビオン・ダンス・バンドの『プロスペクト・ビフォー・アス』から、シャーリーがリード・ヴォーカルを担当しているそれぞれ1曲ずつを収録しています。

内容としてはすでにCD化されているものの再録で、本CDで新たに発掘された音源とかは無いです。David Suffによる解説も既発CD所収のものを簡略化した感じで、原盤のライナーノーツや楽曲解説なども掲載されていません。しかし茶色と黄色を基調としたデザインはたいへんよいです。
