He has one of those voices of his generation, one that's as familiar as a family member, reassuring as a good friend and instantly recognizable whether he's fronting Uncle Tupelo or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The only big miss on this 20-song collection of studio favorites, covers, demos and live recordings is the exclusion of another 20, for as a songwriter Jay Farrar's 1995-2000 output with his second band, Son Volt, a foursome fueled with country despair and garage rock heartache, was as prolific as any of his peers. He has always written about the middlest of America: its highways and grasslands, its all-night radio stations and deserted main streets, and songs like "Drown," "Driving the View" and "Picking Up the Signal" turn the pages with rock and roll vengeance. But Son Volt's and Farrar's magnificence is found in his more fragile and folksy songs, such as "Windfall," "Back Into You're World" and "Creosote," where a cohesive gelling of acoustic and steel, fiddles and harmonica accent his soothing vocal range. --Scott Holter

Son Volt is one of those bands that I will listen to for a very long time.

This Retrospective further introduced me to Son Volt, and has lead me to search out the rest of their catalogue !
John Oakley
This is a good collection of quality tunes from a band that should have gotten more coverage.

It always seems odd that Jay Farrar has not become more of a known quantity in the music world. While his former bandmate Jeff Tweedy has let his talent and outgoing personality fuel Wilco, Farrar's tight-lipped, almost painfully shy public persona has kept him lower on the radar. However talent wise, he is right up there with Tweedy and other cutting edge performers today. This is a good collection of quality tunes from a band that should have gotten more coverage.

Being a casual fan of Uncle Tupelo and Wilco, I figured some Son Volt in my collection made sense. Like people often do, I went for the "hits" album. Honestly I only knew a track or two from Trace beforehand, this has those and alot more. I still don't know every note on this collection, but I like what I hear. Something about Jays voice really puts you into an old truck driving that dusty road. Two of my favorites here are covers, "Looking at the World Through A Windshield" and the last track "Open All Night" (Springsteen). I'd say some Son Volt is a must for any alt-country fan. Might I suggest The Jayhawks Anthology also.

i thought i heard it all on Trace and nothing could match it; thus, all further releases of this band would pale in comparison. Wow, was i wrong ! Although Trace may be the High Water mark, that's not to say that their other material doesn't hit the same place... The previously unreleased material is amazing too ! If you thought you heard it all with Trace, like i did, think again !!!! This Retrospective further introduced me to Son Volt, and has lead me to search out the rest of their catalogue !
This gift to myself was worth much more than the price of the cd itself.

A solid comprehensive look into the early years of Son Volt. I am biased because I am a huge fan (reason for 5 stars), and I bought this album to round out my collection. The unreleased material is a bonus. This album or Trace is a good place to start with this band. Enough has been written about them before that will keep you interested, so I won't ramble about them more here.

Americana lovers, this one is a keeper. Each song stands individually. The album is best broken up among other similar music so that each song can be enjoyed as the gem that it is. When listened to en masse, the vocals get a little strained after a half hour or so. Still, a great collection.

Sometimes a musical group is so suprising that they deserve 5 stars. Talent. Heart. I feel like I might understand the history of "roots" music listening to Son Volt. Instruments, lyrics and where we've been, where we are going.

My first Son Volt album and I'm very pleased with it. I'll need more listing time to decide if I'm buying more albums but this collection is pretty strong.

This new album is very refreshing. Their sound seems to be a mix of southern rock and early nineties rock.
