This is a broad compilation of Roger's post-Floyd work including many rare B-sides from the KAOS albums. In some cases of the live tracks, the quality is not perfect but were chosen for their rarity or interesting content. This was reviewed in 'Reg' and given a thumbs up. Rarities Volume 2 and the forthcoming Volume 3 continue this series. -TimV

Quality varies from song to song. Studio versions are perfect, while Comfortably Numb isn't that great. Good cd to get as too complete a collection of hard to find songs. -Matthew Shine

This is a great Roger Waters retrospective. One of the highlights in the live version of "The Gunners Dream" in which an angry Waters yells at the crowd twice to stop whistling. The track ends with a nice solo by Eric Clapton.
