With a career of over 40 years, Shirley Collins reached new heights of public awareness and acclamation with the release of last year's comprehensive and higly acclaimed 4 CD boxed set on Fledg'ling Records. Now thought of as a national "cultural treasure", and rightly celebrated in the mainstream as well as the specialist music press, Shirley Collins' profile has never been higher.

"The Classic Collection" is the first budget compilation of Shirley's music and is drawn from several sources including her celebrated Topic recordings. The 20 tracks include her versions of many great traditonal songs, such as "A Blacksmith Courted Me", "Just As The Tide Was Flowing", "The Foggy Dew" and "All Things Are Quite Silent". Shirley Collins - "The Classic Collection" is the ideal introduction to this highly revered artist and will appeal to newcomers and seasoned listeners alike.
