With Ian having toured in 1989 and 1990 to promote the YUI Orta album, Castle took advantage of the tour's success to put together this compilation of Ian's Chrysalis-era material as part of their The Collection series.

As with their earlier Mott The Hoople compilation, this is an excellent selection of tracks, although this time there are no rarities to whet the customer's appetite. The sound quality and packaging are both excellent.
