a singles collection had long been rumoured way back before dear old Raven passed away and when it finally appeared it was worth the wait. this is a well executed compilation nicely mastered for a 2013 release and has some great surprises
like Beautiful Dead and Four Stations of the Sun.
well done chaps!
