`What exactly is Acoustic? Stylistically, it covers many genres across pop, folk, country - even rock and jazz. It can be instrumental or feature vocals from a wealth of different artists, often written and performed by a sensitive troubadour, still sometimes called a singer/songwriter. But consistently, at the heart of Acoustic is the thoughtful, literate, resonant song.

Here we present the cream of the crop from a wealth of great acoustic recordings past and present.

This deluxe 3-CD set comes with track-by-track sleevenotes for all 44 tracks featured, with artist/song commentary on each by Chris Ingham (Mojo magazine).

CD3 features vintage tracks from legendary singers, songwriters and pop groups, who wrote the book and still influence what goes on today.

CD2 includes classic, modern performances including a strong selection of the artists and songs that have characterised acoustic music for the last 30 years.

CD1 presents tracks that define the state of contemporary Acoustic art and bring this 5 decade compilation bang up to date.
