_Catch the Spirit_ is the second anthology released by Mostly Autumn -- actually, it arrives not long after their first one, _Heroes Never Die_. Here's the skinny: _Heroes Never Die_ has gone out of print and has been *replaced* by this new set. Whereas the first anthology was only 12 songs (one disc), this is 23 mmm-tasty songs (two discs).
If you enjoy this band and whether you have _Heroes Never Die_ or not, I recommend for you get this. Now some people might say, "Wah, but I already have all these songs!" Well...that's only partially true. The band has recorded everything here, and sometimes they have some pretty big differences. For instance, Heather Findlay (:P'''') takes over lead vocals on "We Come and We Go". Less evident changes include a deeper bass presence on "Goodbye Alone", a more ethereal atmosphere to "The Gap Is Too Wide", a big riff opening "Nowhere to Hide" rather than drunken singing, a more rocking arrangement on "Prints in the Stone", and a spine-tingling cadences of angels on "Mother Nature" and "Heroes Never Die". If you've heard the band's live album _The Story So Far_, you are likely to recognize that many of the songs here are based on the changes made in the live setting. While the changes are largely subtle, but it's quite remarkable how subtle modifications can really alter the sound of the song. There is also a new song (or maybe an old b-side) called "Noise from My Head" which is, like everything this band does, superb. It is a more rocking song a la "Never the Rainbow" with Heather Findlay's pearly voice.
For the Mostly Autumn newbie, I can think of no better place to start (although all of their albums are excellent in their own right). _Catch the Spirit_ doesn't cost much more than their older albums but you get twice as much material.

After finding about Mostly Autumn by the back doors of Iona, I first bought "That Night in Leamington" which was a farewell concert for Heather Findlay. This CD "Catch the Spirit" seem to be the next step in hearing some studio versions, but instead of being a "Best Of" CD it's a collection of new arrangements: reworked, re-crafted, & re-recorded introduction to the band. The cover shown in Amazon.com is really the inside cover, the CD I got has a Mother Nature in Autumn cover. This CD set seems to be more balance than the live version but misses a few over the top guitar solos which really blew my mind. There are some songs that are multi facet with back ground instruments & counter melodies which create layers of sound that can't be recorded on a "Live" CD. Therefore its a trade between "Catch the Spirit" & "That Night in Leamington": cleaner & fuller tunes versus freedom of expression. Looking at some on the entries in YOU TUBE, Mostly Autumn can be rather messy or semi-out of tune in places during a concert, yet this CD is very well produced. I believe the outside dealer via Amazon.com shipped the CD from England within a few days at the normal cost of US shipping. How did they do it?

Neo-prog is the version of progressive rock that emerged in the early 80s via bands like Marillion, IQ, Saga, and Pendragon. It was less complex than the classic prog of early to mid 70s Yes, Genesis, ELP, etc., and tended to have shorter songs. I would describe Mostly Autumn as neo-prog with some British folk elements thrown in the mix. They are not as folky as Iona, but folk is part of their sound.

I prefer classic prog, so I can't really get into this band. But I give them 4 stars anyway because what they do, they do pretty well.
