Not the greatest disc in the set, but certainly not the worst. It's
nice to see one of Neil Young's best songs from the eighties on here, and Roy
Orbinson's last hit (as a solo artist). The only real clinkers on the disc are
the last two songs and the Bonnie Rait song "Nick Of Time", all these artists
had better songs than the ones listed here. Nice to see the group Bjork was
in during the eighties here, the Sugarcubes, they weren't as popular as Bjork
seems to be as a soloist, but they were certainly influential in the eighties.
