Gotta say it, 'cause no one has said it so far, the previously unreleased track "Two Shades of Blue", makes this set worth buying if for just that one track. Gently swaying but percussive and with one of the most inventive and memorable orchestral backings ever, this song is just gorgeous. Rod wrote the lyrics, which cut right to the heart. Who says sad songs can't hurt so good? Just beautiful. Unbelievable that this was a leftover track from the 1998 sessions for the album "When We Were the New Boys".

I got the DVD + 2 CD version. I love all the songs and the remastering is gorgeous which makes the old songs come to life. The DVD has videos on it that were left off the "Storyteller" video set. And the videos on this set are more rare. Some I'd never seen before. Some of the videos are not very creative but it's still good to see them. One of my favorites is "If We Fall In Love Tonight" with Rod the studio photographer lovingly taking photos of friends and families including sweet shots of babies and lovers. What really makes it for me as this is one my most favorite Rod songs. There are many faves, but "If We Fall In Love Tonight" has many unique textures - from the piano fills which sound like gentle rain, to the rhythmic scratching to the uniquely placed background vocals placed just ahead of the lead singer and which contrast nicely with Rod's vocal. The track is one of Jam and Lewis' finest productions ever.

After a hard week I come home some Friday nights, turn out the lights and blast the tunes "If We Fall In Love Tonight" and "This" (from Rod's "A Spanner In The Works"). All the while I sing my heart out. Sure beats the bar. "Two Shades of Blue" is bound to be added to my set list.
